There is no single Sony adaptor that is fully compatible with all Sony lens.

I understood that the new LA-EA5 worked with both screw-drive and SSM/SAM internal-motor lenses? The restriction is that it's only usable on a few cameras, but whether that is for technical or marketing reasons is unclear...

Indeed, it works with all Sony A-mount lenses, and most Minolta ones too. Some people love to spout nonsense, however.

If you check the official Sony LA-EA5 compatibility table, you'll find that many Konica-Minolta lenses have several limitations on an A7R4:

  • Outside the A (Aperture priority), S (Shutter priority), and M (Manual) modes, the shutter speed and the aperture can not be adjusted during the movie recording.
  • The [Lens Comp] (Lens Compensation) function does not work.
  • Depending on shooting conditions, the brightness of the picture may not be even.Set the [Front Curtain Shutter] function to [Off].
  • If you attach the [A-mount lens] using the Mount Adaptor, MF assist function does not work automatically when you turn the focus ring. You can enlarge the image by selecting [Focus Magnifier] function or [MF Assist] function to any key in the "Custom Key Settings".
  • Shake compensation is available with 3-axis(Pitch/Yaw/Roll) by SteadyShot INSIDE.
  • To use auto focus, the system software must be upgraded to Ver. 1.20 or later.
  • Although you can perform auto focusing, it is sometimes difficult to focus on a subject using this function when you are shooting dark scenes or when a subject is located at the corners of the screen or is significantly out of focus.
  • When you perform continuous shooting in the Hi+, Hi, or Mid mode while the focus mode is set to AF-C, the focus does not track a subject. To enable AF continuous shooting by setting continuous shooting to Hi+, Hi, or Mid mode, the system software must be upgraded to Ver. 1.20 or later.
  • When you perform continuous shooting in the Hi+, Hi, or Mid mode while the focus mode is set to AF-C, the speed of continuous shooting can be slower

Most other Sony bodies have even more restrictions (e.g. no AF).
