I'm using the Fotodiox adapter that's on Amazon but I have one issue with it. The tripod mount even when torqued down as tight as possible still rotates a little. This is a problem for me since my follow focus tends to rotate the entire assembly when it's on my rig - this is not an issue if you are shooting photos at all, just an issue if you are shooting video and you need a rock solid platform. I'm going to unscrew the mount and try to rough the joint up a little and then JB Weld it in place.

Otherwise it's a great adapter. Very very tight on both the E mount side as well as the lens side, and the aperature control is easy to turn as well.

Thanks for the information.  That is very helpful.
