Adapter for my lens

[ Edited ]

Hi folks.

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

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.

Re: Adapter for my lens

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...Smiley Tongue

 

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.
