    I did a little experiment with a Kippon FT to E-mount adapter.
    A priori I should get a nice circle in a black rectangle as the diagonal of a FT sensor is half the diagonal of the A7r.
    As it turns out not quite. The projected circle of the 150mm cover the sensor nicely.
    Two caveats though due to the mechanical nature of the adapter:
    1) Can only shoot wide open, which frankly is not a problem that lens was made to be shot wide open;
    2) That Zuiko focus by wire so you have to preset the focus with a FT or microFT body and focus with your feet.
    I know not really practical, though I can see using it for portrait or head shot.
