JJ Backer: just came across 5 very useful Sony ‘Lens Compatibility Charts’ on the Sony e-support site.  These charts show show full compatibility details for all A-Mount lenses when used on E or EF mount camera bodies.  The charts show all features / functionality issues with all 4 Sony LA-EA Adapters and every A-mount lens!  The reason I never noticed this before is that Sony has the charts listed under ‘Lenses: A-mount style’ on the support page.  I think these compatibility charts would be very useful for most E / EF mount Sony owners.  
Go to link below and look under “LENSES”: “A-mount style lenses”:  Then click the ‘lens type’ All 5 A-mount lens catagories listed there include details for all NEX / A7x series bodies when used with all 4 LA-EA adapter versions.
