All autofocus adapters have electronics and firmware that fully support specific lenses that are announced on adaptor manufacturer’s websites.
On the other hand the native Sony LA-EA4 supports fully EVERY a-mount lens. NOT ONLY from Sony but from the Sigma, Tamron, Tokina. It is the only adapter of all mirrorless cameras of all manufacturers with optical phase detection. Of course that optical phase detection isn’t as advanced as that of the latest and most expensive Sony SLT cameras.
Sigma, Tamron and Tokina produce a-mount versions for many of their lenses. KEEP IN MIND that all a-mount lenses from this three a-mount manufacturers don’t have image stabilization inside the lens. Sony since its dSLR era before 2010 and the advent of SLT cameras afterwards offers sensor stabilization inside the camera.
I own the LA-EA4 adapter and I am using it with my Sony a7 and the Sigma 35mm f/1.4 ART a-mount lens which is much cheaper than the native Sony Zeiss FE 35mm f/1.4 and equally good.

Gerry Braatz says:

I have a beck 135mm with a PE mount any advice????

Hoc Est Pseudonym says:

A mostly generic and near useless video for all those but the absolutely unfamiliar. In particular, the recommendation of the La-ea4 or the la-ea3 was wholly ridiculous for the simple fact he didn’t go into what each adapter is for prior to painting the latter as essentially junk (hint: it depends on the lens used). The la-ea3 is generally light years better for lenses that do not need to be screw driven, but offers only manual focus for those that do. The la-ea4 will operate screw drive lenses, but at a cost of both light and a loss of native AF points in addition to being unacceptably noisy for some.

Makinista Original says:

the LA3 on the A7 II don’t focus on the center like the LA4, the LA3 adapter keep fluctuating the focus in a large center square in any mode. Do this test put on continuous auto focus try on steady subject on your pc screen and change any setting on LA3 adapters and you are going to see how the LA3 makes too many focus points inside the center area when you try to lock the focus on the eyes . There is no center focus point it keeps searching and changing in a large center area causing to miss focus on the subjects closes eyes. The LA4 nail the center focus very well. But besides this for focusing far subjects, yes the LA3 is better and faster focusing.

Rahul Chouhan says:

Metabone adapter eye traking in moving subject prefect..?

William Davis says:

after watching this review. I believe you’re still thinking of shooting focus of a mirrorless camera just like a DSLR.

contrast focus is its major weakness. where as phase detection focus is it strength. please try same test with continues focus on. not single shot focus.

btw single shot does use both contrast and phase. yet it still once focused like contrast it’s not readjusting focus

kas' n things says:

Do u know if the techart m-e will work on my nex6?

Girish Jethwa says:

I have C mount in my Leica operating surgical microscope for ophthalmology. I want to record 4K video from Sony alpha 7S II full frame 35 mm mirrorless camera

Patrick Mayer says:

Hmmm… If you have only SSM or USD lenses (Sony G lenses, Tamron USD, Sony A mount with a motor in it): get the LA-EA3! It is cheaper, lighter and, as a bonus, no focus micro-adjust is required when you use it as focusing is done on the sensor itself. That goes for the Sony A7II family of bodies, which have phase detection on sensor. If you have the older Sony A7 model OR have only screw-driven lenses, the get the LA-EA4. It ia as simple as that for A-mount lenses.

Rahadian Iskandar says:

sry sir, which one faster adapter lens between metabones speedbooster vs metabones mark IV??

Rogert Espaillat says:

Lilian Sirbu says:
