The a6000 still can't fully AF a-mount lenses without a mirror based adapter.

I wonder if it has to do with edge softness.  Is it the sensors or the fact that the sensors go out to the edges and what is "focus" for some lenses outside of the normal focus area might have to be mapped in the firmware

Don't Panic!.. these are just opinions... go take some pictures..

There are two possibilities:
- Adapter firmware (this of course would apply only to the mirrorless adapter EA1/3 since the SLT adapters override native AF system). EA1/3 will AF but can't do so with speed of SLT adapter (and do not support screw drive AF unlike SLT adapter). In fact, originally, it didn't have AF at all but a firmware update brought that in.
- CDAF involvement: AF motors in PDAF lenses are not capable of working well with CDAF. It will likely take an updated lens AF system or mechanism built into E-mount lenses.
