Minolta Vectis 50mm Macro , close up's .

Sample and test shots taken with a Minolta Vectis V-mount lens mounted on either a Sony NEX 7 or a3000 via the Monster adapter .

All shots taken handheld .

My adapter review on Dyxum .

The adapter is programmed with the lens i.d of the Sony E-mount 24-70mm , however correct aperture and focal length are reported to the camera .

Very heavily cropped .

That seems like a nice adapter. Even without AF that's a lot more functionality than I would have expected for a cross brand/format transition. Lovely photos and nice to see old lenses being put back to work.

Thank you .

There manual focus only on this adapter , but that not a problem with E-mount EVF's , but it does give full aperture control .
