For your consideration, Nikon D850, 8 months old, pristine condition, just under 4,000 shots taken.

Yesterday, I got some great advice on SD cards for my SX50 while traveling abroad. I'd probably prefer the Sony for traveling (and quality) if I could find one lens with a range similar to my Nikon lens (28-300 for example). Does Sony have an e-mount with a wide range? I don't want to change lenses. I'm tempted to just rely on my Nikon A900. Oh well, I've got some time to figure it all out. Maybe one of you will help make up my mind. Thanks for your input in advance.


18-200 is a big as it gets for the A6XX (APC) e-mount unless you get the 24-240 full frame E-Mount, it's around $1000

I have the Nikon D7100 and have recently purchased the Sony a6500.

I need your valued opinions on adapters and do they really work with the AF-S Nikon lenses? What I have read is sorta grim....but would like to hear from those that have actually used the adapters with these lenses and what was the outcome....

Thank you,


I purchased and returned the Fotodiox one just last week. It worked, but focusing is very slow. I guess if all you do is portraits and landscape where you can wait for it to focus it would be ok. It was not to my satisfaction so I returned it for full refund. And they are not cheap.. $350-$400 Hope this helps..

I use a Vello, aka Commlite on a Sony A7RII. Works great for me. AF is not quite as fast as with the Nikon, but then I'm not sure of AF speed with native Sony lenses.

Nikon lenses still have partially mechanical focusing systems, whereas Canon and Sony have fully electronic focusing systems, so there is a compatibility problem getting Nikon lenses to work well, even with adapters, on Sony E-Mount. Adapted Canon lenses work much better on Sony E-Mount. Apples and Oranges.


Thank You!!

Search Tony Northrop's YouTube channel for smart adapters. He had mediocre performance with Nikon glass on Sony bodies.

I’ve had no use for chipped adapters, but my several Fotodiox products are all of very high quality, on a par with any from Kilfitt, Leica, Nikon or Novoflex.


Thanks for response.. Appreciated..

Good Morning

Anyone with the Sony A6500 ever use any of the Nikon to -E-Mount adapters??? The Smart ones that is. To keep autofocus and such.. Commlite, Fotodiox, Vello.. If so what has been your experience. TIA..

My good wife just bought me a kayak for my birthday. I am hoping to be able to get some pictures while paddling lots of ponds, lakes and salt marshes here on Cape Cod - so mostly calm water. The kayak (Wilderness Pungo 120) has a small dry seal hatch in front which is too small for the camera and lens. The rear hatch is much larger, but not as accessible. I am told the Pungo is a very stable craft, but accidents do happen and there is always the risk of splashing from paddling or choppy water. I will probably be most prone to toppling over while getting in and out of the boat.

I know water and cameras don't mix, but I don't want to buy a waterproof camera or an underwater casing. I will probably use my A6000 and 55-210 lens mostly (no weathersealing). Any tips for protecting my gear from water damage - technique, bags, boxes, floats etc?
