I voted "I use dumb adapters plus A mount smart adapters with EXIF".
I mostly use the Voigtlander M-E close up adapter (I use it much more than I use native E mount lenses...), but I also use the LA-EA3 and LA-EA4 adapters (I prefer the 3, but use the 4 for non-SSM lenses).

In addition, I have large collection of dumb adapters: dumb A-E (used when using old lenses which were adapted to A-mount), MD-E, MD-E with tilt option, few M-E with helicoid, few M-E without helicoid, NIKON F-E, M39-E, M42-E, Pentacon Six-E, Mamya RB67-E and maybe more that I don't remember right now...

It is fun adapting lenses to E-mount...

I do not use any adapter. All my lenses, about 4 years now, are native e-mount aps-c lenses: 3 primes 20/2,8 + 24/1,8Z + 56/1,4 and suitalbe for me 18-135OSS.
If about something special I do not know jet, my first look is surely A-mount and then A/E-mount adapter.

LA-EA1 and LA-EA2 for A-mount on the Nex-6.

Lots of M42 and PK mount dumb adapters for use with various MF lenses.
I've been gradually stocking up in native E-mount MF lenses and using adapters less and less, but the little Miranda (pentax) primes are so nice and small they're fun to use.

I have a so-called 'speed booster' for A-mount which widens the view angle (a bit) and hardly boosts the speed at all (1/3 stop typical) but don't use it any more. Something else to sell ...
Miranda F & Sensorex, Sony A7Rii, A58, Nex-6, Dynax 4, 5, 60, 500si/600si/700si/800si, various Sony & Minolta lenses, several Tamrons, lots of MF primes and *far* too many old film cameras ...

I have a LA-EA2 and LA-EA4 for my A6000 and A7. In addition I have a dump adapter for konica and one for Minolta md. But recently I am using more and more my native e-mount lenses.

MD and OM wholly mechanical adapters (prefer that term before 'dumb'..they don't have a low amount of "thinking" power, they have none) and the MC11, still going strong (receiving fw updates). 1.27 from 1.12 made the EF 35/2 af a little surer on my A7rii.

Anyways, I'm rather glad we live in just a right slice of time to be able to utilize older (or sideways) lenses in a great way!

Just the one Voigtlander helicoid VM to E-mount, plus a whole load of cheapies for as many different mount for my vintage glass.
No A-mount lenses.

I only have ONE EF lens, the Canon 17mm F4 L TS-E (tilt-shift). It doesn't get used much, but I will never part with it

I shoot with a very wide variety of dumb adapters, including models with focal reducers, helicoids, tilt, shift, aperture linkages & the Techart pro (giving AF to manual lenses). Some of these are MFT adapters fitted via a MFT to e-mount adapter.

For my first 6 months of using e-mount I didn't have a single native lens. I now have two but have added a full spectrum modified A7ii to my initial Nex6.

I have the LA-EA3 & 4 for all my A mount glass, but am considering if it's worth getting the EA5.
I'll do a separate post, but does anyone know whether there is an advantage of the EA4 over the 5 when using with my A7M3 for SSM & SAM lenses
BUT most of all with my Tamron 150-600 G2?

Don't think the LA-EA5 currently offers anything the LA-EA3 doesn't on the A7M3. Might be an appropriate firmware update, I guess.

Edit: I meant a future update, but I don't know whether that is possible.
