Overview: The LA-EA1 mount adapter allows you to attach α-series
lenses with an A-mount onto the Sony interchangeable-lens digital cameras and
camcorders with an E-mount. It comes with a handy tripod mount for use with
Compatibility: The LA-EA1 is compatible with all Sony α-series A-mount
lenses, as well as the Sony α NEX-3 and NEX-5 hybrid cameras and NEX Handycam
Tripod Attachment: When using a tripod, you should use the supplied
tripod attachment, especially for longer lenses (70-200mm, 70-400mm, 300mm).
This will help alleviate the load placed on the camera's mount.
Auto Exposure Support: The adapter has an aperture mechanism and
supports Auto Exposure in the cameras.
Manual Focus: With the LA-EA1, you must shoot in MF (manual focus)
mode. AF (auto focus) is not available. If using a lens with a focus mode
switch, it should be set to MF. When shooting, you should look at the LCD screen
or viewfinder to focus. Depending upon the lens, the actual distance may differ
slightly from the distance scale on the lens. In addition, the minimum focal
distance of the lens may increase when used with the mount adapter.
