Puckman- sorry so late; just woke up.
I used the Sony 70-400g2. Distance approx 10 feet, big crop of course 1:1 in LR. Used the Nissin i40. Bird and feeder
in deep shade. Hope that helps.

I dont think it works, the 135 is not an SSM lens, which is needed for AF with the LA-EA3.

Somebody answered me from the FB group.... here's what he said...

"I have it with the LAE4. Focus is slower than I'd like it, pretty good if it doesn't have to hunt too far. Fairly accurate but not perfect. IQ is very good. This lens really needs to be redesigned as the AF is outdated. It's too heavy, too big, and too expensive to not perform better." Rod Lindley

sony really needs to have screw drive support with the LA-EA3, would really love to shoot the 135/1.8, but you pay that much for AF, I would want it to AF as well. Aside from that, I would like experimenting with some other sony/minolta lenses. The "beercan" I'm playing with is optically pretty good, more than older zooms I've tried.

I agree with everything above.....but the optics are phenomenal.

Have any of you used the EF-100L on the A7RII?

I have a whole bunch of generic, Amazon-bought, FD to NEX adapters. They all work fine, since there's no electronics to worry about and the FD mount is pretty straightforward (albeit a very weird design if I ever saw one).


Sony A7RII and a bunch of lenses.

I use Fotasy labeled adapters. They are from amazon as well. Best fit and work on Tough mount and A7ii. Not all adapters will work with the tough mount due to varying tolerances.

The Canon 70-200mm f4 L IS may not be a beauty, but mine has covered more miles in my travel kit than most of my lenses. It's light and it performs, even with TCs. So what if I have to use manual focus for best results on the Sonys--it's the results that count.

My all natural front yard in Florida. That dark sky to the right is the front edge of what is left of Hurricane Fred coming our way.

I'm curious to see how much better the C/Y Zeiss 50/1.7 will be compared to this Yashica ML 50/1.7... I mean, it's pretty darn good IMO
