Expand your lens options

If you're interested in a new Sony Alpha camera, but don't want to stop using some of your favorite older lenses, the Sony LAEA4 lens adapter is a lifesaver. The adapter lets you attach Alpha A-mount lenses to your E-mount full frame camera body and enjoy full-time continuous Phase Detection autofocus while capturing stills and video. The adapter's aperture drive mechanism also allows auto exposure with compatible A-mount lenses.

Features

Overview: The LA-EA4 mount adapter allows you to attach Sony Alpha α-series A-mount lenses onto Alpha α-series E-mount cameras. It is compatible with both full frame and APS-C cameras. The adapter has a handy tripod mount for use with larger lenses.

Compatibility: The LA-EA4 is compatible with all Sony α-series A-mount lenses, as well as the Sony α-series NEX and other E-mount cameras.

Translucent Mirror Technology: The LA-EA4 is the first full frame adapter to include Sony's exclusive Translucent Mirror Technology and Phase Detect AF sensor. The adapter allows your E-mount full frame camera to enjoy high-speed accurate TTL (through-the-lens) phase detection auto focus for both still and video capture.

Auto Focus: When the adapter is in use, Continuous and Single-shot Auto Focus is available, with a 15-point AF system and 3 cross sensors.

Auto Exposure Support: The adapter has an aperture drive mechanism and supports Auto Exposure with all A-mount lenses, except teleconverters.

Tripod Attachment: When using a tripod with the adapter attached, you mount the tripod to the LA-EA4 adapter. This is especially applicable when you use longer lenses (70-200mm, 70-400mm, 300mm, 500mm), as this will provide better balance, and help alleviate the load on the camera's mount.
