I recently bought a NEX7 (Hasselblad Lunar), as well as the above mentioned adapter. It works fine, but i have the odd problem of it beeing able to turn a few degrees left to right, while its locked in the E mount of the camera. Also this play, as ill call it, is also temperature dependent, and camera independent (tried the adapter on my sisters A6000, with the same result). The adapter works electrically, and focuses to infinity with all my A-Mount glass, so at least something. So, i was...

Hi everyone, I have a Sony NEX-7 body and picked up a used Tamron 90mm SP Di F mount (Nikon). I have a Fotodiox nik-nex adapter that fits both the lens and the body. However, I don't know how to set the aperture. The lens does have a 'catch' that opens/closes the aperture manually. But for the life of me, I can't figure out how to make that work with this adapter. Perhaps I have the wrong one. I picked this up off Amazon at this link.  I'm guessing, since I see no mechanism on the adapter...

I'm mostly a still photographer - not much video - and classify myself as a competent amateur. So I'm wondering if the improved sensor and focusing is enough to justify selling my NEX-7 and replacing it with the a6300. I'd like to hear from others who have direct personal experience with this replacement. I can read the specs, but am more interested here in the subjective assessment by those who have used both cameras. Thx.

I'd like to ask a question about converting a NEX 7 to IR. I know that the NEX 7 has weird purple corners with wide angle rangefinder lenses, as well as resolution issues. I have a Rokinon 8mm 2.8 version 1 fisheye which shows purple corners with some resolution loss (and seems to vignette as well) on mine. After an IR conversion, we would expect not to see purple corners anymore. Would there still be some residual aberration? Resolution loss / smearing / vignetteing? Has anyone tried any...

Hey guys, i have asked this question if a few places but I thought id ask you FF guys. I have been offered a A7rii for £1800. I currently have the Nex 7, and I was planning to upgrade to the A6300 which is £1100. Would you guys recommend the A7rii with my current apsc lenses. 16mm, 18200mm, and kit. And then save up for some FE lenses. Or would you suggest just getting the a6300 and getting the a7rii when i can afford to buy both the body and some FE lenses? regards

After a good deal of back and forth with myself, I decided to go with picking up an A6300 over the A7RII to replace my current A6000. As for where I am currently with my skill set and what I have allotted budget wise, believe it is better at this time to wait until A7RIII comes out (aware this will be 1yr+ out at best). The question I am now struggling with is what lens to pick up with the budget I have left with picking up the less expensive body. I want to go to FF in time as landscape and...

Hi everyone ! My Nex 6 is not in a so good shape, and I'm currently thinking about buying another camera to replace it. I already have the A6000, but I always find having a second body at hand is a better solution than swapping lenses on field. I'm more and more interested in buying a FF body, especially since my GF and I share the 90FE Macro, which is superb, and could make a great portrait lens I get (on Aps-c, f2.8 is not that shallow, but on FF, it must be perfect). However, this is quite...

I have been using my Nex & a lot .  I have a technical use in which I take several hundred shots per day using the continuous firing mode. The ISO selection ring is now very balky in resetting the ISO.  It often "bounces back to maximum ISO and takes many tries to get it to the ISO I want. Has anyone else seen this and is there a simple fix?

I am using LR 5.7 right now for the NEX 7 and did not see a need to upgrade to LR 6 and I do not like the cloud etc ... . Now I wonder whether the new Sony ARW formats can be read by LR 5.7 and are supported   or whether I would need to upgrade to LR6 as I tend to get the A6300 soon. And in a similar vein: will Adobe put the A6300 camera profile onto good old LR 5 or will it only appear in version 6? I know I am asking about the 'future', but I want to be prepared when the camera comes in....

I have used a NEX-7 since it came out. I chose it to use with a collection of Konica lens. It has worked well adapting the Konica lens and I have been pleased with it. Along the way, with an eye to the future, I purchased three A mount lens, Sigma 180mm macro, a Sigma 8-16mm and a Sigma 70mm macro. These I use on the NEX with a LA 2 adapter.  It has been my intention to purchase an A mount camera to use the Sigma lens with. The Sony a99. I wanted the heaver mount and do away with an adapter....
