Complete lens guide for Sony E system - Photo Jottings

Complete lens guide for Sony E system

Below is a complete list for lenses that will fit your Sony E mount camera without an adapter, which includes NEX, E, or FE; they all have the same mount. You can also use the old Minolta AF (now Sony) lenses, known as ‘a’ (alpha) mount, but you must use adapters, which are available from Sony, manual focusing one here, and full AF here.

Prices are approximate retail, and do not reflect rebates or other deals.

I have not yet included the ‘cine’ lenses re-makes, (sometimes called re-housed) in which manufacturers simply add on a geared focus and aperture ring with de-click feature to their conventional lenses, Rokinon and Samyang do this a lot.

A few lenses below use a factory made and supplied adapter for use with Sony’s ‘E’ system.  I’ve not tested any of them, and can only assume they work properly.  Look for this symbol to identify adapted lenses.

For quick reference, Sony produced lenses are orange, and Zeiss blue.  I prefer these two manufacturers for their quality control and proper functioning on Sony cameras.
