Hi folks.

First fo all, I'm Italian so do not pay attention to my bad english 😧

Just want to ask you, how (and if) can I adapt this lens ---> Sony 18-70mm f/3.5 (it's from a SONY A100 dslr)

to my EOS 1200d ?

 

this lens have the "type A" (alpha), and I think it's the same for minolta lenses....

You can. "Google Sony a to EOS lens adapter"

 

 

Study carefully what the the adapter does and doesn't do. 

 

I think your money would be better spent purchasing a Canon mount lens.

tried.. but ... nothing 😞

i just want to unscrew the "ring" from the sony lens and put one from canon but... don't know how to search on google....

Here is an adapter that MIGHT work for you:

 

http://www.ebay.com/itm/USPS-Free-Shipping-Sony-A-Lens-to-Canon-EOS-Adapter-For-100D-1200D-1100D-100...

 

I do not have this adapter and therefore I cannot evaluate its quality.  Some people have had success with Chinese-made adapters, others have not.  It is somewhat reassuring that the seller has 99% positive feedback on over 28,000 transactions.

 

As stated in the eBay ad's description, you cannot autofocus or control the aperture automatically when using this adapter.

I found this.... it will work, it's for sony alpha lenses? http://www.amazon.it/Confirm-Lente-Canon-adattatore-DC133/dp/B008H2I1M2
