Sony a9 FW 6.0 – Real time tracking performance with LA-EA3 + A-mount SSM lenses

Hello,

I have a Sony a77 II with several A-mount lenses, and I’m considering moving to E-mount full frame.
However I would like to avoid replacing all my A-mount lenses with E-mount glass.
Therefore, I would like to know how the a9 (with latest FW update) performs in real time tracking with LA-EA3 + A-mount SSM lenses, compared to native E-mount lenses.

Also, does video AF work?

I’m considering the a9 because I guess it will have the best performance especially with adapted lenses.

70% of my usage would be shooting kids moving around indoors or outdoors.
20% kids playing soccer/rugby outdoors or basketball/handball indoors
(10% landscape or still life)

I have the following A-mount lenses:
70-200 2.8 G SSM 1
135 1.8 ZA => I will probably sell it
50 1.4 ZA SSM
24 F2 ZA SSM
DT 16-50 2.8 SSM => I will either sell it, or use it for video in Super 35 mode
Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6 DC HSM => I will probably sell it

Thanks
