If anyone is interested in a couple of manual lenses for their Sonys let me know. I have two hanging about ever since I sold my Sony A5100. And I have the adapter.

I have a Olympus 50 mm 1.4 and a 52 mm F 2.8 macro from what I remember to be konika. Says OM on the body. Both may need to be serviced for cleaning the lenses but the mechanism is smooth.

Another update to this thread and my equipment.

I was using A5100 with MF lenses. Though Focus Peaking is great help, I felt view finder necessary. I sold of my A5100 nearly at buying price - rather slightly above buying price and got A6000 for about ₹17,000; about ₹2000 more than A5100. This came with a tripod too :D

Now my lens collection stands as follows;
Minolta MD ROKKOR-X 50mm f1.7 ~ HK$300 - I felt focus ring is little hard moving compares to Konica lens I have. However, one of vintage lens enthusiast confirmed its fine. I am looking to try this for 1-2 rounds more else going to sell it off.
Minolta MD Zoom 28-70mm f3.5-4.8 ~HK$100 - This serves as kinda multipurpose with 28-70 range and when I am bit lazy.
Konica Hexanon AR 50mm f1.8 ~HK$250 - my favorite lens till now
Konica Hexanon AR 135mm f3.5 ~HK$200 - recently acquired for telephoto end
Helios 44-2 58 f2 ~HK$270 - loved this one for sharp images, might be my next favorite lens; yet to shoot for swirly bokeh
7Artisans 25mm f1.8 ~HK$550 - starting lens for wide side
Those are pretty good lenses, stellar price too! Expecting more responses from you in Photography thread. :p
And yea, would be better if you get something automatic for wider angles, you'd have to struggle a lot with these manual lenses there. And A6000 at 17k where? Please get me one! :p

To update, I have got Sigma 30mm f/1.4. It's amazing lens. It's not going off my camera for any other lens that easy. Scored this one for about ₹13.5K. With this I am inching towards total spending of ₹50K on photography gear.

Recently I bought a Peak Design Clip for carrying my A7iii with 28mm F2 while flying. Very highly recommended if you want to shoot while doing some kind of activity like hiking/running etc... you can holster your camera to your belt/harness/backpack strap etc very securely. extremely high build quality too.

Love the design, very well thought out. it's pricey but worth it.
