question

Will this fit a Nex-6 camera?
Asked by: Anonymous
The two are not directly compatible, as the Sony Alpha NEX-6 Mirrorless Digital Camera uses the Sony E-mount, and the Sony 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 DT Wide Angle Zoom Lens uses the Sony A-mount to attach to the camera. As such, you would need either the Sony A-Mount to E-Mount Lens Adapter (Black), B&H # SOLAEA3 (requires you to focus manually), or the Sony A-Mount to E-Mount Lens Adapter with Translucent Mirror Technology (Black), B&H # SOLAEA4 (provides autofocus) to use the Sony 11-18mm f/4.5-5.6 DT Wide Angle Zoom Lens on the Sony Alpha NEX-6 Mirrorless Digital Camera.

question

Will it work on A99 FF body? What would I stand to lose if I used it on A99?
Asked by: Anonymous
While this lens will fit on a Sony A99 body, it will vignette, as it is designed for APS-C format DSLRs. I suggest the Sony 16-35mm f/2.8 ZA SSM Vario-Sonnar T* Lens: http://bhpho.to/1bcm9xj
