Sony A7 - what adapters will let you use Nikon and Leica lenses?
10 months ago

I have just put down a pre-order on an A7 (body only), as the bundled 28-70 zoom doesn't set my world on fire. Does anyone know what adapters would let me use my existing FF Nikon lenses and any Leica lenses I might be able to find?

I would suggest the Nex forum of DP review , There are plenty of adaptors for E mount  , not as successful for A mount.

Kinda tricky knowing which forum to post about the A7 in - seems to make most sense in this one, what with it being an alpha camera and all...

Understood  they are both "Alpha"  A mount and E mount  separates them though , Shame Sony could not fit the A7 with IBIS  though.

I'm interested in the Sony A7 coupled with an m-mount lens 24mm focal length, possibly the voigtlander 25mm color skopar.  I would use this in 1.5 crop mode. Am I right in thinking there would be no problems with edge smearing or colour shifts that I have read about on other Non M bodies with wide angle lenses>
