Consumer review by:

No image stabilization, why?

 

This thing is great for people the want or have to use the vast number of a mount lenses available.

A mount support

No image stabilization, noisy auto focus

Great Item "BUT"

 

First off I am a Sony fan, I believe that they are going in the right direction with their cameras. That being said, I bought and returned the LA-EA2 due to its lack of image stabilization and this becomes apparent as you start using longer lenses with...

Very fast - Lens extension

Very expensive - lack of image stabilization

NEXvg20

 

Got this for my NEXvg20, got a few A-mounts to compliment my E-mounts, i use fast lenses with noisy motors for fast paced video shots where audio is not an issue, then silent motor for close ups. A good buy for someone who uses a lot of lenses for...

Fast, alows more lense options, flawless with silent motor lenses

expensive, can be let down by cheap lenses with noisy engines

Didn't work

 

I bought a new copy along with two lenses (SAL 24F20Z, Sigma 150-500). With both, the electrical contacts were intermittent at best. With the Zeiss, a slight twist of the lens relative to the adapter would fix/break the connection. With the Sigma, it...

When it worked, cool

Didn't work

Fast focus for action and video-zooming

 

I had owned LA-EA1 for the mirrorless experience without committing to E-mount lens purchases. I found mirrorless-focus to be inadequate for action-shots or video-zooming. This works really well for both.

Fast focus, use of A-mount lenses

Expensive, focus motor is loud during video

Consumer review by:

AF in video : great

 

Great piece for vg10. Been using this for a month now. Gives extra ordinary AF from all lenses. But on video mode, only f3.5 onwards. For f1.4 prime lenses video, MF is only option. With an additional investment on a shot gun mike, the picture is...

Ease of use

For video mode AF minimum f3.5

Consumer review by:

worth every penny

 

this product just took my NEX5 to another level, I've purchased it with 50mm lens, and I cannot stop taking pictures of absolutely everything around my house. I thought i would be happy with this purchase, but felt kind of bad of spending more money on...

ability to mount a type lenses

price

Consumer review by:

Great but expensive

 

I would only truly recommend this to those who have already invested in an NEX camera and possibly the original LA-EA1 adapter plus any A-mount lenses.

Fast Phase-Detection auto-focus on NEX

Expensive

Extends my NEX-5N Versatility!

 

I originally had the LA-EA1 and discovered it's limitations quickly. Returned that and waited for the LA-EA2 and WOW, what a difference. I currently have the Sony Alpha 50mm 1.4, Minolta Maxxum 135mm 2.8 and the Minolta Maxxum 85mm 1.4G lens and they...

Focus speed is FAST

Price, it does lose a little less than one f-stop

Consumer review by:

compatibility

 

Surprised that the 'compatibility' of cameras does not list the most 'daring' VG-10. Had called the customer support enquiring about this, but was not sure if this adapter will be compatible with the VG-10 / VG-10E. A clarification will help hundreds...

auto focus with NEX

compatibility with VG10 in question
