I lost my tulip-shaped shade for this lens. Is there a replacement I can buy?
Asked by: John M.
B&H sent me your question. I bought same Sony lens on Nov.2013, fortunately I already keep both lens and hood so I can't help, sorry. Guess you have to accept to buy some third-party hood.

question

Is there an adapter for the Canon 5D Mark iii?
Asked by: Anonymous
The 24-70mm f/2.8 Alpha A-Mount Lens has the Sony Alpha/Minolta Maxxum mount. It would not be compatible with Canon cameras such as the 5D III.

question

Is there any adapter or converter for nikon D800?
Asked by: Anonymous
FotodioX makes an adapter that would allow you to mount a Sony Alpha lens such as the 24-70mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss T* Alpha A-Mount lens onto a Nikon DSLR such as the D800. Do keep in mind that you will lose auto functions. Also, the adapter has an optic in it so that the lens can retain focus at infinity. This will act as a slight teleconverter; it will also have a negative impact on the optical quality of the lens. http://bhpho.to/INEnPc

question

Hi guysI was wondering if this lens will work on the new Sony A7?Will it behave any differently on a full frame sensor? Maybe Vignetting???Thanks for the great work, it really is appreciated.

The Sony 24-70mm f/2.8 Carl Zeiss T* Alpha A-Mount Standard Zoom Lens is a full frame Sony Alpha/Minolta Maxxum mount lens. To use it on a camera with the E mount, such as the A7, you would need an adapter such as the LA-EA4 (B&H # SOLAEA4). As this is a full frame lens there would be no vignetting using it on a full frame A mount camera, or with the full frame LA-EA4 adapter on a full frame E mount camera such as the A7.
