Hello everyone. Currently i developing a little DIY project and have an idea to implement Sony E-Mount to be able attach various adaptors for lens testing. E-Mount has short flange distance, its diameter big enough to fit any lens and there are tons of inexpensive lens adaptors on ebay. But as so as it don't use clamping nut as pl-mount, IMS or b4-mount, i'm not sure how durable, rugged and precise this mount appears to be. I would like to to hear your personal opinion regarding usage of this mount in real life... Thanks!
Hi, just wanted to start a topic about using 3rd party lenses with the Metabones Speed Booster. Their website warns about the possibility of some lenses having protruding rear elements that could scratch the adapter or short out the electrical connections. I don't yet own any EF lenses, so I'm currently using a Rainbow Imaging Nikon to EF adapter. The lenses I've tried with this are: - 50mm f/1.8 pancake (all manual) - 24mm f/2 AIS (all manual) Camera is a Sony NEX-5n. After my first day of trials, this combo works fine. My caveats so far: - The Nikon adapter tends to stick to the lens, requiring a manual depress of the delicate release lever in order to unscrew it from the lens. So I'm just buying another Rainbow Imaging adapter and plan on leaving it on the lens all the time. - The lens focuses a bit past infinity. Other than that, I'm really enjoying the Speed Booster and see no image degradation. Will be posting sample videos soon. Anyone else tried other lenses?
