Aside from being different mounts, they are also at different distance from the sensor .... ???

From SAR link:

  • "A trusted source just let me know that it is Sony’s plan to make the NEX-9 Full Frame camera compatible with the Alpha Mount. But he said this will not be through the use of a simple adapter. Apparently Sony engineers found another solution but he didn’t unveil me how that will work."

So, the E-mount flange distance is 18mm, the A-mount flange distance is 44.50mm.

If no adapter is to be used, the sensor has to move by 24mm???

Anyone wants to make a guess what to expect here?

Wouldn't an LA-EA4 solution be preferable (with PDAF)?
