Would love to have these but the site says for delivery in Japan only starting mid-Dec. How about posts relevant to U.S.A?

Great article!

Would it be possible to do an article covering the best methods to transport the gear you need (lenses, bodies, filters, batteries, covers, etc.)? What do I use to make sure I have the gear I need with me? There are all flavor of bags at lots of price points. What actually works? I personally find this aspect of photography a challenge.

On article Using third-party lenses on the Sony a7 / a7R (525 comments in total)
In reply to:

lenseye: Some, if not most, of the issues described here are very Sony centric and Sony is not really known for its superior user friendliness. Their exposure algorithms are also very questionable when compared to other main players. I know RX-1 insists on choosing F2.8 no matter what as if it were just another sub-compact camera...

I have been using a Ricoh GXR M-mount alongside my Nikon D700 and have never had any of these issues. Having tried the Sony and read some of the early reviews I think I am going to stick with my GXR for the time being until another maker like Fuji or maybe even Ricoh (long shot) comes up with another FF option.

For those who are thinking about trying this kind of thing I also need to say that using an older (or newer) lens with any of these cameras through an adapter is a whole different ball game needing much study and practice. Don't expect to attach the lens and take fantastic photos right away... you might be initially disappointed but keep at it!

I have to disagree .. I did expect and have attached the 2 adapters I mention just below your post. Some practice using manual focus yes but results have been outstanding from the get go. I'm very pleased :)

I agree with most of what has been stated. There are definitely a few quirks to fix in an update. I sure hope Sony is listening!

I've used a few Canon EF lenses with Metabones III adapter. In manual focus mode, I've found the focus peaking to work very well. So much so that I could even use it for action photography quite effectively. I have also tried some old Minolta MC/MD lenses with FotidioX adapter with excellent results. An MD 50mm f/2 lens cost me just $30!

Thanks for the article ..
