I wasn't aware the ZK were adaptable to the A mount. Thanks for the advice, I will check it out. Better hurry up as the ZK will be discontinued


Oops, sorry, that was typo. I am not aware of a K-mount to A-mount adapter. I meant to say the ZS (M42) line of Zeiss lenses. I see now that Zeiss has only the 25mm, 35mm, and 50mm in the ZS line and not the wide angles (18mm and 21mm).


That's ok. The better option would be ZF/ZF.2 with a leitax mount transplant

I actually got David from Leitax converted my Pentax A 50/1.2 to alpha mount. The process is reversible, but you have to cut off/remove the aperture arm to prevent it from hitting the mirror box. Nonetheless, with the ability to adapt ZF/ZF.2 now, IMO, Sony actually has more advantage than Canikon. Canon people have been playing with Alternative glass for years (admittedly less costly via adapter, but more trouble with mirror shaving), so I don't see why we can't do the same thing with Sony. We can actually have SSS as well.
