    In the Adapted Lens Sample Image Showcase area I don't see a single thread for Sony lenses. Are they categorised somewhere else or out of ~690 threads nobody has posted any Sony lenses?

    There are no adapters for Sony mirrorless lenses, and probably never will be. The flange distances don't work for adapting. Same goes for Fuji.

    Good thing I wasn't asking about Sony mirrorless lenses, then :)

    Do you mean Sony lenses on m4/3 cameras? Or other lenses used on Sony cameras?

    There are adapters for Sony A mount and Minolta Maxxum lenses.
    The lenses with AF/MF switches work fine.

    I am referring to the use of Sony lenses on mu43 bodies. Let me know if there's anything else I've left out.

    They are not catagorized somewhere else. And yes, out of ~690 threads no one has posted an image made with an adapted Sony lens.

    There are a lot of lenses not represented in the adapted lens threads. More, I would guess, than those that are.

    Yeah, I think aiming for 100% coverage would be pretty optimistic!
