Maybe its my fault, maybe not so if i can get the right advice nothing lost.

i don't usually have buyers remorse or get annoyed at sales people but this time I'm really annoyed.

after some deliberation, i decided on what i read and what the sales guy said from a rather large organization to buy the Sony A7.I had first told him I was about to sell off All my Nikon gear I had a buyer and should I go with the D600 or the Sony A7 his response was wow thats a hard one but I would go with the sony because of all the adapters and legacy lenses, so I sold off all my Nikon stuff and bought it, I paid extra to get it early.

Didn't you just decide to pick up an a77 3 weeks ago? Anyway that is a heck of a leap to make off of the advice of a salesman but what was said is largely true.

First off it shows up two days late,(will ask for a refund for the delivery) then when I go out to get lenses and adapter, I find out they really don't work that well lots of problems,

Besides certain U/WA what in particular?

Im not worried about auto focus I can handle manual we all learned on it ad it can be actually faster if you know what your doing. I shoot concerts weddings, glamour and special events which I was told the sony could handle. But when I tried to use the lens with a rocker md wouldn't focus right couldn't stop it down correctly, no metering in manual or AP and when I read on I saw others had the same problem and gave it back.

Since this seems to be a complaint about an adapter what adapter was it?  Or is this a bad lens with a stuck aperture once again I'm confused

I really want to keep it it seems like a great camera but don't want to spend 1k plus on lenses and really will the La 3 or 4 really help I don't need auto focus so maybe the 3 would be fine but what about for weddings and the bands I shoot.

What about shooting the weddings and bands? Do you want/need AF or not?  The LA-EA3 will give you aperture control and exif along with very rudimentary focusing.  The la-ea4 gives you a57 level AF speed.

sorry about this rant but very very frustrated and like I said blame myself too so can ANYONE with a clear head and mind give me some good kind advice, do I send t back and get an older A900 or do I keep it, get a list of GOOD adapters and lenses that will work without breaking the bank too much. or did I just screw myself really good selling everything of by what the salesperson told me and buying into it.

there are hundreds of good lenses people here could recommend you need to narrow that down a bit.  For adapters it depends on the mount you are looking to adapt.  If you want manual lenses you don't need anything more than a $10 Chinese adapter.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS. There ar lot of good intelligent people on this forum. Please help.
