Have just joined this illustrious band so here is my basic e-mount kit and some results.

I use a Zhongyi Lens Turbo as standard to give me full frame coverage, especially with wides.

The oldest lens is a pre-Ai Micro Nikkor, followed by a Tamron Adaptall 17mm, the later version without the built in filters, and the most recent is a Tamron 28-200 zoom, which is a great walk-around lens. I also have a pre-set 300mm Hanimex which is suprisingly sharp if you are careful.

The images show the various combinations, except the 300, and results from each.View attachment 110240View attachment 110241View attachment 110242View attachment 110244View attachment 110245View attachment 110246View attachment 110247
Hi and welcome! Not too many people have that A3000 I guess. Those Micro-Nikkors are something else; the only Nikkor I still have is the Micro-Nikkor 3.5/55.

Thanks for that - I will bear that in mind. The iPhone camera is pretty good but is very much a back-up. Must have used it when I didn't have my regular one with me.

Hi Ad - my Micro Nikkor is the same as yours and apart from the occasional flare problem is one of the best of its day I believe. It certainly gets as much use as any of my lenses and is used extensively to digitise film negatives on my copy set-up.
The A3000 was possibly something of a market testing excercise or maybe just to use up some spare parts. I like the option of an SLR style of shooting as well as the rear screen approach.

I don't think my latest adaptation would be described as sweet I'm afraid but I will throw it in for curiosity's sake.

I recently completed an adapter back for my 5x4 to take my A3000 and used it to make some images with a 1903ish Robinson rapid rectilinear lens.

Using the rise and fall, and cross movemnts of the camera I stitched multiple frames to obtain a large file. The still life example here is made with 9 images stitched together in Affinity Photo, first in threes and the resulting three for the final image. It gave an original file of 46Mb which would print as a 20x24 at 300dpi. An f32 Waterhouse stop was used.

The second example I did with 15 frames, again at f32, stitching 5 frames vertically and then the resulting three horizontally. This one came out at 108Mp.

A pretty laborious process but quite satisfying to see how well such old glass can still perform.
