    Hi all,

    I now have an A6500 and quite some E-Mount glass. I had and sold the SELP1650 and the SEL1670z. I' now looking for a faster all around zoom. My ideal would probably be something like the SEL1670z but at f2.8 (yes, would be larger in size, I know, but willing to sacrifice some size and weight for speed)

    My understanding is that there's nothing native for APS-C so I'm considering an adapted one such as the SAL1650 SSM and LAEA3 (I read I would need firmware v2 for this adapter to work on the A6500)

    Any of you have this or similar combo and, if so, can share experiences?

    I guess I could also consider offerings from Sigma, Tamron, Canon and Nikon in their respective mounts with adapters so also interested in hearing about similar alternatives.

    Thanks in advance.
