Re: Finding and 18200 lens for my A7 Alpha

Although the lens is designed for asp-c with a small image circle, zoom lenses will cover the ff sensor at some point as you zoom towards the long end. The image circle expands creating a larger image on the sensor, loke a tele-converter. My Pentax DA 16-45 zoom covers the FF at 20-45mm. The Sony 10-18 zoom covers FF from 11-18mm. See you may just get lucky. You need the fancy adapter for EF lenses because they don't have an aperture ring. You can also force the A7 to FF with a crop lens. In the menu under the gear, select # 5, item 2. On off or auto. Aps-c capture size.
