  1. Do you have any recommendations for a Canon FD to Sony A mount adapter? Or is the recommendation don’t bother. I’m trying to find an affordable way to put a 500mm on my A77 and the FD 500 f4.5 is a great option if I can adapt it.


    1. Hey Dan,
      I think it doesn’t make sense to use that lens on a A-mount camera because there are no glass less adapters which enable infinity focusing. I would recommend a E-mount camera instead.

  2. Hi Phillip,
    I have been following your work for quite a while now and must say I am very impressed by your artistic talent.
    I do have a bunch of Minolta lenses that I would be prepared to lend you for your reviews, such as an MD 24 f2.8, an MC 85 f1.7, etc… an several others.
    Please send me a PM on how you would like to proceed.

    Best regards,


  3. Have you tried the Canon 70-210mm f/4 FD? I heard it is quite sharp and is also pretty affordable (~$25 USD). Downsize seems to be the size.
