Sony A6000 & Metabones smart adapter

Hello,

 

after some years of Canon DSLR stuff i decided to change cameras and went with the Alpha6000. I also ordered the  metabones smart adapter to use my lenses: a Tokina 11-16, 2.8, Tamron SP AF 17-50 2.8 Di II VC and a Sigma 30mm 1.4 old version.

 

Does anyone have experience using the Alpha 6000 with a smart adapter Mark 3?

 

I am encountering several problems with the Tamron as well as the Sigma lens. The aperture is changing on screen but not on the lens itself or sometimes takes quite a while to react. With the 30mm the recording even suddenly stops after some seconds.

 

Has anyone experience regarding this? I am wondering wether the lenses are not supported, wether the smart adapter does not work right with the A6000 or something overall is broken...

 

The Tokina works fine and the when the stuff works it's looking pretty good. I am also enjoying focus peaking. Of course it's the first day of testing...

 

Best,
