Re: A thought ....

I can understand the arguments which say that it will be difficult to fit IBIS into the small E-mount but this then raises the question as to why Sony continued with the narrow mount when they could have made it bigger with  a new range of FE lenses ?

I know that some will want to feel that their APS-C lenses are not totally redundant but they would probably get better results still using these lenses on their original cameras. A bigger lens mount would have got round more than one issue & yet Sony avoided doing this , the only reason that I can think of is that they wanted the FE lenses to be backwards compatible with the APS-C cameras ?

Do any of the existing E-mount adapters for legacy lenses operate in a FF mode without vignetting ?

Leica M mount to E mount adapters.

Nikon F/G to E mount adapters

Canon to E mount adapters.

only the Sony EA1 and EA2 are known to vignette.
