A Bridge Between Lenses


from North Pole, Alaska  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I bought this as a way to extend my lens selection from Sony's emount system. Although the emount lenses were good, I needed more reach and opted to purchase a Tamron 18-270 and a Tamron 70-300. Adapter works well and shows no difference in terms of lens speed, etc. Very pleased ... in fact, enough so, I bought a 2nd one so my wife can use my other lenses as well.


It works as advertised


from Phoenix  -  Semi-Professional

This adapter allows me to use my arsenal of lenses on my NEX VG30 video camera. It makes some very nice video options available to me including long range and super wide. The only bad thing is that you can only go to apeture 3.5 on video, but i think that is the camera's fault.

Great Item "BUT"


from RI

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 this adapter. I have the NEX 6 a really great camera, I also have a SLT A65 also great. As I see it the NEX 6 with the 16-50 lens along with a SEL 55210 is all you really need. I bought the NEX 6 for its size it seems to me that it can be a really great street camera.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
RICHARD G  Wanted rapid AF with all my A mount lenses on the NEX-5
Shopper  Does this offer slt ?
BENJAMIN S  I'm not sure what "slt" is. The adapter transfers all the A mount lens features,auto focus, shutter speed and aperture control to the E mount camera. The adapter is expensive but if you have several A mount lenses you would like to use on an E mount camera, its probably worth it. The bulk of the adapter is negligible when using a wide range zoom but not so when using a smaller lens. Ben
Shopper  I have a Sigma 150-500mm f/5-6.3. Will the IS and AF work with my NEX-6?
JIM W  First, be aware that there are two models of the Sony adapter for Alpha or A mount lens to the Sony NEX E mount: The older LA-EA1 adapter will NOT do Auto-Focus, but the newer and more expensive LA-EA2 will do Auto-Focus on lens that support AF. Secondly, remember this is an adapter for Alpha or A lens to the Sony NEX E mount. The Sony/Minolta A mount lens do not have image stabilization in the lenses (the Sony Alpha cameras have IS within the Alpha bodies). For this reason, all third-party lenses, that I am aware of, that are made for the Sony A mount do not have built-in IS in the lens. If your Sigma lens has built-in IS, it is probably either a Canon or Nikon mount, rather than a Sony A mount, and thus will not mount on this adapter. Double-check your Sigma lens.
