Sony LA-EA4 adapter (adapts Sony Alpha or Minolta MAXXUM AF SLR lenses to NEX, about $350). enlarge. My biggest source of support is when you use any of these links, especially this link directly to it at Adorama or directly to it at Amazon, when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. It helps me keep adding to this free website when you get yours through those links — but I receive nothing for my efforts if you buy elsewhere. Thanks for your support! Ken.

This little gizmo lets our NEX cameras replace SLRs. Heck, this adapter and the A7 is less expensive and better than the plastic A99 fake SLR!
It works with both the screw-focus and electronic focus lenses.

It really works!
The less expensive LA-EA3 adapter doesn't provide autofocus with screw-focus lenses. It only couples exposure and aperture information. I don't know if it allows autofocus with electronic focus lenses.
Be careful of the piece of glass in the middle. It's easy to bang, and if it gets tweaked, AF will no longer be accurate.

Help me help you top
I support my growing family through this website, as crazy as it might seem.
The biggest help is when you use any of these links when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. It costs you nothing, and is this site's, and thus my family's, biggest source of support. These places have the best prices and service, which is why I've used them since before this website existed. I recommend them all personally.
