Article about using vintage lenses on mirrorless cameras.
Last Updated on November 12, 2018
If you have a mirrorless and are not playing with old lenses yet, it is a sandbox you need to play in. Ebay is your friend and don’t be afraid to order out of Ukraine.
Make sure you buy the correct mount. You do not need an expensive adapter. There are no auto functions that you will be using. It is going to be A mode or manual.
Read ads carefully as to condition. No Fungus is a must. A little oil on blades won’t hurt condition of the lens. Sellers are pretty up front on condition. Norm and I have purchased a good number of these lenses. They are fun to shoot with. 50mm to 135mm are the most common.
My personal favorite is the 55mm Helios. Drop me a note if you have questions. I shoot Sony A6000 and A7.
