    Hi,
    I did some brief research on web lately regarding is there any adapter I can use for my A7 camera and Contax G lens that will provide autofocus/EXIF, but as more as I look around I am more confused. The only one I am sure it will NOT give autofocus with my camera is new Techart M to E mount.
    Did anyone who has old A7 camera has any success to obtain any adapter that will provide more than manual usage of the Contax lenses.
    Thanx.

    I used my Contax G adapter on my old A7. But it was hit and miss. It does a much better job on the A7II (and A7RII).

    The Techart TA-GA3 (the final v.3). Techart released a firmware update that enables PDAF, but the A7 can't take advantage if it.

    Vello makes an adaptor for Nikon lenses. I've used it with 70-200 f4 Nikon to the 7ii. Won't work for A7.

    Got mine at B&H in the US. Works on newer set of lenses. Check the list on site.
