Thread: A58 with METAL mount!

    A58 with METAL mount!

    I looked on ebay for Sony Alpha parts, found a seller with a few mirror boxes, and asked him for a lens flange and screws. If the flange is one-piece like the LA-EA4, that's all you need. SOME metal flanges are two-piece, so you'll also need the black metal backing plate to go with the stainless lens flange. Very similar to the pieces you REMOVE in doing the A7/A6000 Fotodiox flange swap. I received a two-piece flange, and the screws. It took 3 minutes and fit even BETTER than the flange from the LA-EA4. Now my A58 has a proper metal flange for $22.00. A fun little adventure!

    Looks great! Do you notice an improvement compared to the plastic mount?

    Do you have a link to the parts needed for the upgrade?

    There's isn't a noticeable difference in performance, just a better feel. This was just a curiosity satisfied and annoyance with plastic lens mounts.

    Here's a link to the ebay auction the seller set up for me. Contact the seller to see if they can replicate. The seller's ebay name is "cktina" if that's faster.

    Wonder why you couldn't take some parts from an old Minolta camera.
