- QuestionI understand I can use a Pentax lense from a non-dslr camera from 15 years ago with an adapter with the Sony a6000 mirrorless. Is that true? (2 Answers)Answers
Yes, you can! I'm assuming that you have a Pentax "K-Mount" lens- I have a handful of them that I use with my Sony E-Mount cameras (NEX 5R, NEX 6L, A7II, and a6000). There is no official Sony adapter for these lenses, but you can find third party adapters from sellers on Amazon and eBay. Prices generally range from $15-40. I haven't had any problems with the cheaper ones versus the slightly more expensive adapters that you can find on sites like B&H Photo. For sure, you can tell a difference in build quality, so I usually rely on the reviews of other purchasers to gauge which adapters to go with. Adapters from a manufacturer like Fotodiox/Fotga have been pretty reliable for me. The lens release mechanisms on these adapters tend to be the cheapest part- it's amazing how they differ from one adapter to the next. Reading customer reviews has often helped me figure out the individual quirks of how to work the various release mechanisms. Anyways, I have successfully used Pentax SMC-M and SMC-A "K-Mount" lenses such as the 50mm f/1.4, 50mm f1.7, 200mm f/4, 135mm f/2.5, 35mm f/2.8 and the 28mm f/2.8. Just keep in mind that these adapters and the lenses you attach to them (and thus the camera) will not have autofocus! This is strictly manual focus when using them with your a6000. I recommend turning on the focus peaking function (areas in focus will be "highlighted" in your choice of color- red, yellow or white) on your a6000 as well as the manual focus magnifier (you can assign one of the custom function buttons to turn on the focus magnifier which will "zoom in" on an area so that you can be sure that certain details are in sharp focus) to make it easier on yourself. It would be best to use vintage manual focus lenses on subjects that you can keep still (portraits, landscapes, macro) and stick to modern autofocus lenses for taking pics of kids and sports.
- QuestionI have Sony SLT-A65 with 55mm and 300mm lenses. Can those lenses be used on the Sony a6000 or a6300? (1 Answer)Answers
Hi! The Sony SLT-A65 is an A-mount type of camera while the Sony a6000 & a6300 are E-mount type cameras. The lens will not fit in. However, you may use the Sony A-mount to E-mount lens adapter: LA-EA4 or LA-EA3 to make it work. Hope this helps. -Anthony
- QuestionDoes the lens from the nex 5 fit this camera? (2 Answers)Answers
Yes, any of the lenses from the prior generation of Sony E-Mount cameras (the NEX line) will work with the a6000 as well as the a5000 and a5100. Official Sony lenses will begin with "SEL" in their model names ("SEL50F18" is the 50mm f/1.8 E-Mount lens). Sigma also makes some great E-Mount lenses in 19mm, 30mm and 60mm (all f/2.8).
- QuestionHow does the A6000 camera compare to my NEX 7 (1 Answer)Answers
Hi Pat, the A6000 uses phase detection with 179 focus points while the Nex7 uses contrast detection. Major changes in the camera as well would be the WiFi capability. It also supports applications that can be installed in the camera. A6000 has multi interface shoe where standard hotshoe accessories will work. Nex7 on the other hand uses minolta hotshoe. -Zander
