    Sony have lae3 and lae4 I think the model names are for adapters.....
    There are many adapters from various vendors and some are better than others.

    I shoot quite often with a professional Landscape , astro guy who lives in my city....he shoots Sony for landscapes and canon for his astro....he uses all his canon lens on his sony and gets fantastic quality.

    Read about them and go for gold make use of your investment...well worth it I would say.
    Excellent , I'll await Jays advice on what i should buy .
    Thanks Steve

    Hello again I have the Metabones III electronic lens adapter and it works great in my opinion. Now the Metabones IV is out and the Speed booster unit which actually takes the full frame optics and converts the extra light to extra speed. Hence the speed booster name..

    There are many other electronic lens adapters out nowadays, including the Sigma MC-11 which is great quality and more affordable. I would consider that or the speed booster option personally, for the best quality. The cheaper adapters also work, but I have heard bad things periodically like they break, or get stuck on the camera, or even break the camera. So it appears you get what you pay for to some degree with these adapters for sure. The metabones units are really expensive, but very well made in my opinion. The Sigma unit is also really well made and much cheaper considering the quality and reviews I have seen. The speed booster is the most expensive, but does yield a faster effective lens for that extra cash.

    As far as Image quality goes, it's awesome and I have no complaints at all in that regard. Focus speed is pretty good on the A6000, but not like it is with native lenses. On the A6300 it is almost as fast as a native lens however. Don't expect to be shooting sports or anything with a good hit rate though. Regular photography however it's more than adequate in my opinion.

    I hope that helps,
    Jay

    Hi Jay

    Thanks for taking the time to advise , it appears the Sigma MC-11 is the way to go and bang in the middle price wise so seems the sensible option .
    I'll look to purchase one in the near future

    Thanks
    Darren

    To be honest I'm also wondering do i still need my Canon stuff , is mirrorless good enough for me now etc .
    I haven't used it since i bought the Sony but i do like the idea of having 2 cameras just in case

    I don't think you need the Canon gear anymore, but it is nice to have for sure If you are a Pro shooter, meaning you do it for money, then having two cameras is critical, but otherwise it's a luxury I would say. I have a bunch of Canon gear and can't bring myself to sell anything ever, even though I barely use any of it besides Sony... Some lenses I have not used in years, literally!

    Hi Darren,

    I would hang onto the lens and buy adapter.
    As I said early I shoot with a pro that shoots canon and sony...he only uses canon lens......has no sony or batis, zeiss etc.....all canon as he started on canon ...but he does use both cameras canon for astro and sony for landscape.
    Camera : Sony A6000
    Sony Lens : FE 90mm f/2.8 G OSS Macro , 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 OSS, 10-18mm f/4 OSS ultra wide,FE 16-35mm f/4 OSS ZA Lens
