Re: Viltrox Nikon to Sony E AF Adapter: Early Experience

Is "battery hog" while using it, or that it runs down the battery when the camera is off? Many adapters don't correctly detect that the camera has been turned off, and stay on, draining the batter. I've observed that with the Viltrox EF-NEX III. The work-around is to either momentarily detach the adapter, or momentarily eject the battery, after the camera has been switched off.
