Premier quality lens adapter manufacturer Rayqual have today released the first version of their range of lens mount adapters for Sony E-mount cameras, such as the Sony NEX3 and NEX5. The adapter for Leica M mount rangefinder lenses is available as of today, with other manual focus mount versions (Nikon F, Canon FD and Contax/Yashica) and adapters for autofocus lenses (Nikon FG, Pentax DA) including an aperture control ring following in due course (please see the product pages for produc trelease schedule).
The new Sony E-Mount is an exciting addition to the growing variety of small mirrorless SLR cameras allowing flexible use of contemporary and classic lenses. While there are a wide variety of adapters on the market, Rayqual adapters are MADE IN JAPAN to the highest quality standards allowing photographers and cinematographers to reliably and precisely mount alternative lenses on their cameras.
A customer in the video/motion picture industry who tried their luck with the cheaper alternatives comments: “We already have adaptors for all our Nikon lenses and they work, it’s just that the tolerances are no good resulting in the lenses rotating which is a problem when trying use a follow focus shooting video.” The issues were resolved after switching to the equivalent Rayqual products.
