Re: A to E mount adapter using NEX-6 sensor PDAF - possible?

I Bought a La  1 so I could use it with my Tokina 11-16 on 5 N while my Six had the La 2 with a A mount Telephoto , I never could get it to AF at all with this lens so for me it did not serve the purpose so I returned it and got a second LA 2 , I have been totally happy with LA 2 adapter and it's nice to SEE it correctly described as 1/3 of a 1 Stop light loss instead of 1/3 total light loss as some uninformed folks have replied in posts  , I really wanted the LA 1 to works it's small and light and as stated you can remove the tripod foot for a sleek set up. But in my case no AF and at best slow a AF on select lenses was a deal breaker.  Thanks Marc
