Has someone tested this combination jet?

The reason why the LA-EA1 was so slow, was because the NEX only could do CD-AF and the A-Lenses are pretty slow in CD-AF but much faster in PD-AF... So with the PD-Pixels on the Nex 6/5R there would be PD-AF possible with the LA-EA1, no LA-EA2 needed (in theory)...

It would be a highly appreciated test to compare the SEL 30F18, and the SAL 3518 with LA-EA1 and the SAL35F18 with LA-EA2!

I have a NEX-6, LA-EA1 and the SAL3518. Actually using the adapter will disable PDAF and CD-AF is still slow as hell. I do not see any improvement compared to my NEX-3 on this.

For this reason, I use this lens 99% in manual mode, also with my new NEX-6.
