    Hi, the reviews of the Sony 50mm e mount are dicey enough I’ve decided to use my old Minolta Rokkor 50mm 1.8 – 22 on my new Sony a7. What adaptor is needed and how does this pairing perform?

    Any MD-to-E-Mount converter should work fine. You won’t have things like aperture control or autofocus, but there’s no reason to think it won’t work. I use adapted vintage lenses all the time on both Sony and Canon bodies, and I have rarely had any problems (and when I did, it was related to lens elements blocking the Canon’s mirror, which isn’t a problem on Sony).

    I like Fotodiox and K&F Concept adapters; either will work great, and will set you back $20-25.
