you don't need an adapter with sony, because there are more lenses for e-mount than any other milc format on the planet... e-mount has a future, while canon camera sales have been dropping like a rock..

I love that Sony advances the sensors so quickly, but things like a flip screen and a better adapter should have been done by now.

a better adapter for what, exactly? and why, when e-mount has such a vast lens lineup.

IMO, not having a good adapter shows they dont care about their previous customers.

  1. They havent updated the LA-EA1 to allow PDAF, even though the A6300+ can do PDAF with adapted lenses.

afaik, laea1 is out of production... it serves no purpose, because the laea3 works on crop bodies.

  1. The LA-EA3 doesnt work as well as the Sigma MC-11, even though Sony still sells A-mount lenses.

the pdaf functionality works just as good as it does on the mc-11, and in fact with real-time tracking, laea3 af is better than it is on any a-mount body.

sony does limit the framerate to 3fps af-c or less on the a7 bodies, and 10fps on the a9, but that is a deliberate choice.

laea3 has a tripod/monopod mount, mc-11 doesn't.
