No the plan was to push people to the expensive cameras. Reality is for most A mount users - just use what you have or keep buying used gear for A mount lenses. It's hard to call this adapter for anything else other than a poorly though out marketing ploy

I'm loving the trade in offer too..lol

More like "Enjoy not being able to AF with most of your A Mount lenses on your new E Mount body"

That's why there's that ¹ and ² in the flyer. See that? "Offering full compatibility with the latest E-mount bodies¹, and AF systems for A-mount lens² users."

The A7siii, and A7C aren't "The latest"? The A7iii, and the A9ii are also "the latest".

At the time that flyer was released, the adapter was only compatible with TWO cameras. how hard would it have been to list the two cameras.

To future proof the adapter. It works with the new A1 camera, which had not come out at that time.

"The latest E-mount camera bodies"... but not the one just released the month before the adapter (A7SIII), or the next one to be released (A7C), or the A9II which was released after the A7R4, but, yeah, latest...

A7R2 with SEL2470Z and a number of adapted lenses (Canon FD, Minolta AF, Canon EF, Leica, Nikon...); A7R converted to IR.
