To sell or to adapt?
Jul 12, 2014

I just recently sold most of my Sony A mount kit, to move an X-E1. The only lens I still have is Minolta 100-300mm APO AF lens, I was planning to sell. However, when I was looking at adapters for the MD mount lens I have, I noticed there are some A mount adapters, with some ability to change the aperture going for $40 or less. I wanted to sell it and get a MF lens in the 300mm range, but now thinking this could be an option. My question is, do these adapters really have some aperture changing functionality, and if so is it any good? Or do you just suggest I get a lens with aperture control on the 300mm range?

As a note I plan to use it for wildlife shooting.
