Alternative Adaptors For Sony A7 Series


If you have ventured into using a Mirrorless camera you will probably know about the numerous adaptors that you can buy which enable you to use a multitude of lenses on a mirrorless camera.

Perhaps one of the best-known adaptor brands is Metabones, with their latest product the T Smart Adaptor Mark lV. However, with an asking price of £350, I was not placing an order for one.

After spending a lot of time on the web and researching all of the alternatives I came across the Techart Saker Falcon Lite. To be honest it sounded to good to be true, but eventually my curiosity got the better of me and the price was low enough to take a punt.

I initially was lucky enough to test it out on a few Canon lenses, the EF 70mm-200mm f/2.8 IS ll USM and the EF 200mm f/2.0 L IS USM thanks to Mr Rob T and I was blown away by the results. Anyway, that was a few weeks ago and in an indoor environment.

Well tomorrow the Canon EF 70mm-200mm f/2.8 IS ll USM and the Techart Saker Falcon Lite will really be put to the test as I am photographing MX (Motocross) at Fat Cats and I will de providing info and images within the next few days of how I get on.

What I can say is that you need to do your homework as to which lens will work with both the Techart Saker Falcon Lite and the Metabones T Smart Adaptor Mark lV and I will also include a list of Canon, Sigma and Tamron lenses that are working with the Techart Saker Falcon Lite I own.

Recently Sigma have announced a Canon to Sony E adaptor, (Sigma MC-11) so it looks like if you own a Sony A7 series of camera you will be very well supported lens wise.


If you are looking into buying a new camera and have a lot money invested in Canon or Nikon glass, the Sony A7 series of camera are certainly worth exploring.
