What would be nice would be if they made a firmware update available for the original adapter .
It should be possible as it does drive the lenses AF motor .
When you turn the camera off , the AF resets to infinity .

Yep .
See here

I've paid up for one !

This version is capable of firmware updates , whereas the v1 isn't . So it's highly unlike that my version could be updated .
It'll work fine on my a7Riv , albeit not all lenses cover the full frame .
It'll be interesting to see how it functions on the NEX 7 .
It might mean getting a later a6*** as my pocket camera next year .

I shall wait and see .

It'll be nice if it turns up this year , I'm looking forward to seeing how my 25-150mm lens behaves .

I'm hoping they'll start shipping in a month or two. I've completed my collection with a very cheap 400mm and a not so cheap 17mm. Prices may go up now ... Maybe we should start a Vectis lenses themed view.

It'll probably be a bit later than that , the croud funding things still got a month to run , then they'll order the parts they need that they don't make themselves .
Then they've to assemble and test them , before sending them out .

Maybe it's time to dust off my surplus Vectis lenses and get them on ebay for greatly inflated prices over what they cost me !
The most i paid for a lens would be the two 17mm lenses I own that I paid less than £50 for one and the other came with an DiMage RD-3000 .

I think I posted some images from the Vectis lenses when I reviewed them , but there not on lenses sample shot forum .


I've got quite a few to to put on a themed view and will be happy to add more when the adapter arrives .

I managed to end up with quite a Vectis set while searching for the 400 reflex (rare and expensive 17 and the 25-150 are missing) and am eagerly awaiting supply of my adapter to put them to ill use.
