This is an E-mount lens, however it only covers an APS-C sized sensor. You could use it with the A7 series, but it would have to bee in a cropped sensor mode.

Will this lens work with the Sony A7R IV without an adapter?
Asked by: Just
Yes and no. This will fit on the Sony A7RIV without an adapter, but because it is an APS-C lens it will vignette a full-frame sensor and you will likely only want to use it in Super35 mode.

Will this work on a Canon EOS R Mirrorless Digital Camera with the Canon Control Ring Mount Adapter EF-EOS R installed?
Asked by: James
I have used mine with the regular EF-RF adapter on the EOS RP. The lens does not cover the whole sensor on FF. But, if you shoot video with digital IS on high the increased crop factor means the lens is able to just cover the whole frame.
