    Hello, i recently adopted the a6000 accompanying my nikon d5100. I have some nikon system in my disposal (flash sb700, nikkor G lenses) and hoping to use them in the a6000. Read their compatibility elsewhere but kinda confusing. Can anyone explain how to combine a6000 with nikon flash and lenses, including adapters required? Appreciate it...

    I love my A6000 but only use the small pop up flash which does fine for my needs. However, my SB-800 nikon flash will fire on the hot shoe no problem. On my A7R I set the flash on manual and adjust the power. As for mounting nikon lenses on the e-mount you have a few choices. I suggest B&H photo/video website see metabones brand, Novoflex brand and don't forget the speed booster, worth considering.

    Nikon compatibility

    Coming from Nikon and evolving over to Sony...I have the Fotodiox Pro NIK(G) - NEX (non click) adapter.

    Works with Nikon "G" lenses that doesn't have an aperture ring.

    Manual focus only.

    Here is a test shot I took with the AF 50mm f/1.8D in very low light with focus peaking SOOC (JPEG)

    I use the Sony HVL-F20M as a wireless trigger off the A6000 to trigger the Nikon Yongnuo YN-565 EX Speedlite for off camera flash...needs to be in M2 mode.

    Focus peaking is working with adapted lens? I thought it's only E-mount lens compatible...

    It simply measures the contrast of the video signal coming from the sensor, so it has nothing to do with which lens you use.

    Yup, any lens you have shows up.
