Hi. Has anyone experience of using a Canon EF-S 55-250mm 4.5/5.6 IS STM lens on a Nex-6 or A6000 via one of the cheaper adapters e.g. Viltrox? If so, how did it perform in terms of AF and aperture control? I've been unhappy with image quality from a SEL55210 on my A6000 at above about 160mm and wonder whether the Canon lens would be an improvement. Thanks in advance for your advice.

Do they produce super sharp images? What about the color rendition? I already have a helios 44m-4 but still don't have the adapter. I'm planing to buy this canon. Are they better than the kit lens (16-50pz)?

Hi, My dad and I both have NEX-6 cameras. Earlier this year he bought a Metz 20 C-2 flashgun to use with his, and it worked fine. However, over Christmas he went to use the flashgun and it didn't work. He connected it to his hot shoe, but nothing happened when he tried to switch the flash gun on.  I put the flash gun on my NEX-6 and it worked fine, and it also worked on my brother's NEX-5. My dad also tried another flash gun on his camera and that didn't work either, but it did on my...

The problem I am having is one I have never had with any mirrorless camera before my newly acquired a6000. I do not have this problem with my NEX 6 nor my NEX5R. Or, with my OMD. I have scoured the online 400+ page manual and can't find the setting I am looking for.  I am hoping it hasn't been deactivating in the a6000. Here's the "problem": With the a6000 I seem unable to choose which of the three viewing screens it will default to in "auto review". [Yes, I know I can toggle through each of...

Hi, Currently I have a NEX5n and a NEX6 that I've had since my A77 and NEX3 were stolen. I definitely enjoy their portability (2 camera+lenses in a slingshot). Having become a bit disillusioned with phase AF in the past (for fast primes) fast legacy/new manual glass has seen a lot of use lately. For outdoor in daylight sport / people / movement I've been using the 55-210 with mixed but OKish AF results and for non-quick animals outdoors in daylight the Minolta  MF 300 4,5. Have an LA-EA2 and...

I've been using sony Class 10 UHS-1 R40 (40mb/s) memory cards for my Nex6. My a7ii is on its way - will the same speed work well with the a7ii or should I switch to 60 or 90mb/s cards? --JoelGallery: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/7905316948Most Interesting: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/joelrnyc/popular-interesting/Flickr Stream: http://www.flickr.com/photos/joelrnyc

I finally got around to try my NEX-6 with long exposure tripod night shots, something I've only done with DSLR:s before. Since my first attempt was only moderately successful, I wonder if someone can give me a few pointers about a few issues: 1) How do you focus with an EVF/LCD in near total darkness? It dissolves itself into a mushy blackish noise pattern where amping up the exposure time or ISO does not really seem to help beyond a point. 2) Is there a WB setting that will give me sane...

What I'm really looking for is a link to a well made, good fitting adapter for this specific type of legacy glass.  Looking forward to using it again!  BTW, is my old Minolta worth anything to anyone anymore?  I don't want to get rid of it at all, just curious is there's any kind of market for these things as collector items.
