It's an up sell tactic from Sony. Do you think it's coincidence that it's working with "the more expensive bodies"?. The A6600 being the same hardware as the A6400 and 6100. Has nothing to do with battery they can drive the LAEA4 as can the previous A6300/6500

Sony don't want it to work with the cheaper stuff. Hard to find any other conclusion.

I agree, its such and obvious and jerk move by Sony. Just like that F3.5 limitation, which was debunked on the original A77.

I also agree it's another A-mount disappointment from Sony.

Its even worse they dont clearly state it on the product page, so people are shocked when it arrives and doesnt work.

I also agree it should be prominently displayed in the text without having to look for footnotes and click to other pages.

Oddly, though, it's referenced three times in the promo video on the product page, along with some other caveats:
