Sony LA-EA2

i had the sony nex 5 and now i have nex 5n.
I also had A55 and some alpha mount lenses.

Sony nex 5n is a wonderful camera, but has 2 "problems".

First, only few lenses are available at the moment and its a little slow on focusing in low light and fast moving subjects (kids , sports etc).

So, the only solution is the new adapter LA-EA2... i just received it, and i am very happy !

I tried it first with my Sony 35mm f/1.8, it works nice, as fast as it was in my A55.
I have 15 focus point and phase detection system.
Exactly like the Sony A55.

I can choose between Wide area focus , center point, and local point (any of 15 points).

Accuracy and speed exactly like A55.

But the better news are, that i can also have my Sigma 17-70 OS HSM in my nex 5n with stabilizer !!!
It works nice , fast and silent.
It works in video too, as in my old A55.

There are other sigma lenses with OSS like 17-50 OS f/2.8 , 70-200 f/2.8 OS etc.

I tried my old Minolta beercan 70-210 f/4 and of course worked as expected.
Its a little slow on focusing but it was slow on A55 too.

Sony SLT-A55
