In the first article of this series, we take a look at how to master camera settings when using a third-party mount adapter with the α7RII Interchangeable Lens Camera
Many recent AF lenses such as the Nikon G type and Pentax DA no longer have an aperture ring. Lenses of this type require a mount adapter with an aperture operation mechanism.
Also, some mount adapters for the SONY α system are specially designed for APS-C models and these pose a risk of vignetting at the perimeter of the image, so be sure to purchase after checking compatibility with the α7RII.
Many lenses from the film era have a long minimum focus distance, and do not allow shooting from very close up, but some mount adapters have a built-in helicoid. If this type of adapter is used, shooting can be done from a position closer than the lens’ original minimum focus distance.
