This poll is to find out what sort of lenses members are adapting to E mount and to what extent.

If you use some other form of EXIF capable adapters, Autofocus Dumb adapters, or speed-boosters it would be great to hear about them in an accompanying post then we can refine any follow-up polls.

For A-mount use on E-mount I have an LA-EA1 and LA-EA4. For all other old rangefinder and other mount manual lenses I have dumb adapters (OM, MC/MD, Leica M (of which some have a built-in helicoil), M42, M39, Exacta, Konica, .....)

I also have one Metabones speed booster for OM lenses but that doesn't see much use since I got an E-mount full frame camera. It is however a great piece of glass for use of old manual lenses close to their original field of view on an APS-C body.

Except for the Sony adapters none of my other adapters transfer EXIF or do AF.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

I tend to not use A mount lenses on my E mount bodies , they work better on A mount bodies .
Adapted lenses I use on E- mount mainly use dumb adapters , Minolta SR , Contax C/Y , Olympus OM etc .

The only adapted A/F lenses that tend to get used on E mount are Canon EF ones .
Very rarely though .

I am wondering if which option I should choose: in addition to LA-EA3, LA-EA4 and various adapters for older manual focus systems, I do own Commlite EF-NEX adapter, but I cannot say I really use it since I don't currently own any EF lenses. In fact, the original inspiration to get it (and deliberately choose cheaper alternative than Sigma MC-11 or Metabones) was the idea that when I hang around with Canon shooting (bird) photographers I might be able to borrow their lenses at times, but so far that sort situation has not really arrived and I guess my aqcuisitions of RX10 IV and now FE200-600G make the idea of borrowing Canon lenses even less likely. Especially as the trend has been that quite a few people who have been using Canon system have now swapped to Sony system...
