Top Customer Reviews
It's easy to use: (a) On the Sony a6000, use the menu to find the second settings tab, the one that looks like a gear. Toggle sideways to #3, then down to "Release w/o Lens." Enable this, which allows the shutter to be released even though the camera can't detect a lens. (b) Set your desired ISO or leave this on auto. (c) Set the mode dial as you wish. Most modes will automatically adjust the shutter speed based on how you adjust the aperture. In shutter priority or manual mode you will have to adjust the shutter speed as well. (d) Focus manually. This is where the focus peaking feature really makes life easier. It's not on normally, so enable it using that same gear wheel tab of the menu. Go to #2 and choose Peaking Level, and set it to low, med or high as you prefer. (e) Set your desired aperture manually. That's it.
This little gadget has given new life to thousands of dollars worth of nice old glass that would otherwise be relegated to gathering dust.
The Adapter is well made, looks and feels solid - not chintzy. However you SHOULD know that its no more than a mechanical coupler b/w the two mounts with nary an electrical point. Which means there is NOTHING of the K mount lens you can control through the camera upon mounting. There is a well secured lens release tab mounted on the adapter which is about the ONLY other operational aspect you notice on the adapter. More on the lens release below.
OPERATION on an E Mount:
Owing to lack of electrical contacts, you eschew all automatic features of the Pentax lens with the adapter E mounted. In fact, the camera does not even recognize that there is a lens mounted because there is no transmission of electronic data to the camera simply because there are no contacts on the adapter. This means that with default settings, the camera's shutter won't fire. Which is why, to use your K mount lens, you need to set the 'Release w/o Lens' option in the Camera Menu - which upon doing will let the camera's shutter fire. The camera will then meter in Manual mode. As mentioned earlier, since there are no electrical points on the adapter, you lose the ability to aperture control the lens through the camera IF your lens does not sport the aperture control ring (someone correct me if I am wrong). My 18-55 Pentax kit lens cannot be aperture controlled because it does not have an aperture control ring. However my 28mm F/2.8 SMC prime's aperture can be mechanically controlled through the lens aperture control ring. Mounted on a Sony alpha 3000, if you press the bottom button next to the screen, the camera digitally zooms in to the focal point and you can manual focus to a greater degree of precision. You need a good fairly high resolution LCD to achieve this. It sounds complicated but is really easy once you get used to it.
NOTE on LENS RELEASE: The lens release instructions in the small piece of included instructions are COMPLETELY wrong. As others have mentioned, put your fore-finger on the tab and pull it towards the camera - you will sense a spring controlled movement, then unlock the lens with a clockwise motion. Do NOT push the tab in or pull the tab out - you may break it. To its credit, the tab isn't flimsy and doesn't seem to break easily. However, that's not the point and that's not what you want to test.
CONCLUSION: This is not one of those expensive brand name adapters like Novoflex, Voigtlander, Fotodiox etc - those are expensive for a reason and that is because they preserve the camera's AF ability on the cross mount platform. This is purely a mechanical device that couples one mount to another rendering all AF features redundant. If you are ok to treat your resulting setup as a fully manual focus setup, then this is a great purchase and would definitely recommend at this price. Am docking 1 star for the incorrect lens release instruction on the mechanical tab
Thanks for reading.
All four units are TOP quality and are as good (or better) than adapters costing much more. They all "snick" tightly onto the lenses and attach easily to the camera. So far I'm using these adapters on:
1. Minolta Rokkor MD 50mm f/1.4 Lens
2. Minolta Rokkor MC 135mm f/2.8 Lens
3. Minolta Rokkor MC 300mm f/4.5 Lens (a MONSTER on the NEX-7)
4. Tamron SP 90mm f/2.5 Portrait/Macro Lens (with a matching Tamron extension tube for macro).
I gave it 4 stars because it is the closest I've found to actually working 100% with the 20mm lens. Beside the ebay ones, I also tried a Fotga and a Fotodiox adapter from here on Amazon. Neither of those would hit infinity at 28mm.
