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.

Again, Sony choosing to not support those who supported E-mount early.

sony supported both e-mount and a-mount owners with the laea3.

people who made the mistake of getting the discontinued laea1 instead of the much more logical laea3 didn't get the latest firmware update, but they did get a firmware update back in 2010: https://www.sony.com/electronics/support/lenses-mount-adaptors/la-ea1/downloads/W0006248

but really, sony should have never made the laea1 in the first place, it was totally unnecessary.

  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.

Exactly, Sony is really choosing just to screw people who have Sony A-mount lenses. The A7iii with 3rd party adapters dont have those limitations.

those framerate limitations also apply to 3rd-party adapters like the mc-11.

for example, no a7 series body can af-c faster than 3fps, with a canon-brand lens.
