question

Is this compatible with the a6300?
Asked by: Aslak K.
Not directly, no. The Sony 50mm f/1.4 Alpha A-Mount Standard Prime Lens uses the Sony A-mount/Minolta MAXXUM lens mount, while the Sony Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera uses the smaller Sony E-mount lens mount. As such, you would need an adapter, such as the Sony A-Mount to E-Mount Lens Adapter (Black), B&H # SOLAEA3, to use the Sony 50mm f/1.4 Alpha A-Mount Standard Prime Lens on the Sony Alpha a6300 Mirrorless Digital Camera.

question

is this lens compatible with sony alpha 3500?
Asked by: Anonymous
This is a little hard to answer as I can't seem to find a Sony Alpha 3500. I am assuming this question is about the Sony Alpha a3000. The a3000 is an E-mount lens with an APS-C sized sensor. It can use A-mount lenses with an adapter; either the LA-EA3 or the LA-EA4. However, since this is an E-mount camera with an APS-C sized sensor your best bet is the 50-f1.8 E-mount lens. This lens is small, fast focusing and offers excellent image quality.
