(SR5) First rendering of the upcoming LA-EA2 adapter with built-in translucent mirror.


On top you can see the very first (real!) design of the new LA-EA2 adapter with built-in translucent mirror! As you see the adapter is quite BIG. It allows the use of the phase detecion autofocus with 15 AF points! As I already told you weeks ago the adapter will cost around $400. My guess is that the adapter is partiularly welcome by filmmakers that want to use the Alpha mount lenses on the [shoplink 6170]NEX-FS100[/shoplink] and other future E-mount camcorders.

The current LA-EA1 adapter is much cheaper (around $150) but autofocus is slow. Check the price and specs of the LA-EA1 at [shopcountry 8114].
