Customer Question
I purchased a vintage...

I purchased a vintage vivitar 205mm macro lens online with an adapter for my sony a6000. Works really well but too heavy for my camera which leans forward. Need a lens collar or mount for the vivitar lens for the tripod. Do you know of anything that will fit?

Technician's Assistant: How old is your A6000?

2 years

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your A6000?

Nothing. Have spoke with B&H and Adorama. They don't know what will work either.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

No - I'm good.
