    Hello to all.
    I am new to this forum and currently own a Sony A7ii and 35mm FE
    I am seriously thinking of spending on Minolta 70-210 Beercan lens and Sony adapter for shooting motorcycle road racing, any advice is welcome.
    New to mirrorless although been shooting DSLR for some time.

    You do loose a bit of AF speed with non-native lenses, but you open up a whole world of options.

    Welcome Malboni! And yes, I don't think anyone here will ever tire of seeing what the Beercan can do with our cameras. And motorcycles? Oh, you have no idea what you just did. :laugh1:
