NEX Adapters
« on: November 02, 2010, 08:53:42 PM »
I am contemplating one of those little itty bitty NEX 5's as a "carry around everywhere" camera. I know about the a-mount adapter, which is freely available on numerous camera websites, but I also interested in the MD adapters, Leica, etc adapters. Does anyone have a good UK based website (apart from fleabay) that sells the e-mount adapters? Everyone keeps going on about these adapters.

I keep reading lots of good things about the NEX and it is tempting with the VAT Back offer in the UK and will fill a bit of fun to play with before the A700 replacement comes out next year!

Any help is appreciated.

I know you said apart from ebay, but that's where I'd look :)

Thanks for replying Fother.

I had a quick look and there are some UK based ones on ebay, all the kit comes from china or hong kong by the looks of it.

A startling array of adapters!

Jut bought a second hand LA-EA2 and tested it with a few Tamron and Minolta A mount lenses on my a3000, I can confirm that it was autofocussing with all the lenses.
