I just ordered a Sony LA-EA1 to adapt a tokina Sony/Minolta lens A mount to my NEX7. I found one on ebay for $60.00. It will adjust aperture but not auto focus. I always do my own focusing anyway, even with auto focus lenses. Now I have to find a good price on the Tokina 11-16 Sony mount, per your suggestion. Thanks: Larry

If you're going to manually focus, why narrow your search to a Sony-mount Tokina? Get a more available Nikon or Canon, and a G lens adaptor for $20. It is a chunk of metal and glass with a 77mm front objective. Make sure you play with one before you buy it. It's very much a DSLR lens
