    Is it possible to use the Hologon on the Sony mirrorless?

    Contax G to Sony Nex adaptor perhaps?
    And I guess that opens up to Fuji X as well, just guessing though.
    Nice lens(es) and something I'd love to own if I had the cash.

    It can be used on Sony a7 series, opens up to the full frame as it meant to be.

    Thank you for the clarification. I understand that the Hologon is full frame.

    I asked my question because I heard somewhere that the Hologon interferes with the a7's shutter and I wanted to hear about any First hand experience. I am interested in the Hologon for my Sony-a7S. I used to own the lens when I had the Contax G2 outfit.

    Are any photos to show? AFAIK, there are no samples from it and the A7s (electronic shutter). With the others (A7r, &) the shutter will strike the rear of the lens, it seems.

    (Apologies for the OT post, OP)

    I think you are right, the A7s with electronic shutter fine, the a7 & a7r might have some issue with the shutter and the lens might need some adjustment to the rear end.

    I believe the A7s electronic shutter is first curtain only so you may still get a strike. Cool lens by the way. Have seen great results from one of these converted to M and used on a monochrom.

    I guess it will be easier to converter to the M mount.
