Hi Ian,

I've always been pretty happy with the Sony ones. I have the straight pass through one, and the added translucent mirror auto focus one for my Nex 6. Nice fit with no wobbles, and accurate pass through of data to the body from the lens. I have had cheaper adapters for the e-mount from e-bay etc. but the quality never made me very comfortable with using them.

Quick price check has the Sony LA-EA3 (without mirror) for £119 and Sony LA-EA4 for £199. These versions allow full frame to full frame on the A7 series as well. I have the original APS-C only size, but these are out of production and so now more expensive new.
Nex 5, Nex 6 (IR), A7M2, A99 and a bunch of lenses.

That's why I like this forum, share and learn.

Some Sony stuff and now some Nikon stuff (shock horror). Sony cannot supply what I want so rightly or wrongly I'm branching out to someone who does.

I have an A6000 and use a Minolta 100-300 APO zoom with it via a Sony LA-EA4. It works extremely well, giving fast auto focussing (faster than using the same on my A7R) and exif data, altho' it can't tell whether the lens is a Minolta or a Konica; I guess they are essentially the same.
Kit: all Sony now:
RX-100/3, A6000, A7R. Lenses:FE16-35, FE24-70, SonyF10-18,SonyF18-200, FE35/f2.8, F16/2.8, Minolta APO 100-300, Nikon 135 macro, Nikon 50/1.4, various extras.
