(A-mount to E-mount Adapter)
I bought for my wife a Sony Nex-F3, easier for her trip with Nur Iman, no need to bring those bulky DSLR with gigantic lenses. I got those for only RM16xx at bukit bintang plaza with normal kit lens. inside, you've got one of the best APS-C sensors on the market now (use by other brands also etc: nikon,pentax,fuji)
since i've got several lenses form my A-mount, I just need an adapter to use it with the Nex camera, the are a lot of adapter where you can choose, any mount but most of them without any 'chips' so you have to manually focus and manual metering. I bought it online for RM90, just a plain normal close up adapter, I have to manually set the aperture (stick something to the aperture lever behind the lens) and manual focus.
(Tamron 10-24mm F/3.5-4.5)
manual focus?! soooo00 1921...! but hey, you should try it! yes it is slower than normal auto focus, and you'll get out-focus most of the times, you can manage your focus point ANYWHERE inside your screen! you don't have to select the focus point on your camera dials, you're free to focus the person in the back or vice versa, it's you who choose the points! oh, further more, the Nex have a peaking function where manual focus becomes easier!
(Sony 50mm F/1.4)
using the 50mm is a winner here! you'll get the huge depth of field, good for portraiture, 50mm F/5.6 is not as creeeeeaaaamy as 50mm F/1.4, hehehe..
(Tamron 70-200mm F/2.8)
sony also just announce the new 35mm f/1.8 and 10-18 f/4.0, just what i wanted! need to get approval from the treasurer, lol! but wait..is this suppose to be my wife's camera?!! why am I getting so excited?! she doesn't any mannnnual focus lens, she doesn't want to change lenses between portraiture and landscape!
