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.
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.
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.
