AF 100-300mm xi 4.5-5.6 (Power Zoom & Focus) on an NEX?
The Minolta AF 28-85mm 3.5-4.5 is one of my favorite lenses for the Sony NEX (using this adapter to control aperture), so I ordered an AF 100-300mm xi 4.5-5.6 . After looking in to the xi though, it looks like I've overlooked that both the focus and zoom are powered, so I'm questioning if/how I'd be able to use it on my NEX.
Will the power zoom& focus make it unusable? I found this mod to make the focus fully manual, but that still leaves the zoom to be dealt with.
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this question, but I felt that it's more at home here than in the NEX forum.
