Sony E and MFT lens adapters

Post by Tapio » Tue Oct 09, 2018 6:59 pm

Hello,

Is there any hope of getting the Sony E or MFT lens adapters (ZWO-T2-SONY and ZWO-T2-M43) back to production? E.g. ASI294 or ASI071 would make a sensitive meteor and aurora cameras combined with a wide and bright manual lens, say Meike 6.5mm f/2.0. There are no similar lenses available for Canon or Nikon. Sigma 4.5mm f/2.8 comes close, but it has too much electronics and is fairly expensive. ASI-cameras with smaller sensors and lenses don't collect enough light to keep the shutter speed fast enough. Were there technical problems or just lack of demand?

Thank you,
Best Regards,
Tapio

Yes, we are considering about it.

I would be very happy to buy a new E-Mount lens adapters also.

I have the original version but it is a little loose. If a new adapter were to be made, would there be any hope of compatibility with the ASI071MC or would it be only the 1600/183 type cameras due to flange distance?

Thanks,

Jason

Hi,
I'll be glad to buy a Sony E-mount adaptor too, for 1600 and 183, and 094, thank you.
Bests,
