I added an a7R this year to my A77 and box full (literally) of Minoltas (d7's, 5000, 7000, 9000, etc.) and could only spring for the Zeiss 55 1.8. That lens is nothing short of spectacular, but I wanted to use some of my old favorite AF lenses from the Maxxum days on the new sensor. I have a dozen vintage primes that all work great via adapters (Canon, Konica, Kiron, Voightlander, Minolta and Nikon), but on occasion, autofocus is a nice thing to have. Unimpressed by the new FE zooms (on a per-dollar basis), and so far, no SHARP third party zooms are out, so this was definitely a stop-gap bag filler.

So you know I'm not a Sony fanbois (strictly speaking), I'll start with the cons:

It works, but it's NOISY (and this is coming from a guy who doesn't mind the a7R shutter), and although it adds Phase Detection, in anything less than good light, it's slow. (Sorry, Sony - but I have 30 years invested in this gear, and it's just not quick or precise). NOWHERE near the AF speed (or accuracy) of the same lens on the A77 or 99 (and with the FEZ551.8 it's very capable, *amazing, actually, with EyeFocus* so it isn't the body).

The screw drive lenses (28-85/3.5, 70-210/4, 16-50/2.8, 17-70/2.8, 50/1.4, 50/1.7, 90/2.8, 105/2.8, 135/2.8, 10-20/4.5) all have varying degrees of mechanical NOISE - I mean like very clear clicking and muted banging/slamming of gears. as if there's slack space between the drive pinion and the corresponding connector in the lens. It actually scared me a little - it sounds like something may break - seriously. It's the worst in marginal light when the system has to hunt a little - it clicks and clunks like anti-lock brakes in a panic stop on a snowy road, and vibrates like that too.

I bought the LAEA4 adapter when I received the Sony a7 and a7R. This adapter works with both cameras and, in my mind, it is a superior adapter than the LAEA3 adapter. The latter, while less expensive, does not autofocus Sony or Minolta or Minolta/Konica lenses that use the focus motor that is within the camera body. It will autofocus, albeit slowly, with those model of lenses were the focusing motor is built-in into the lens barrel. In contrast the LAEA4 will focus with both type of lenses.

Essentially the LAEA4 adapter converts the mirrorless camera (including the NEX series) into a SLT camera that uses phase detectors. When used with these cameras, focusing speed is as fast as my A77. By the way, the LAEA4 is an update of the LAEA2. The former is designed to work on BOTH full frame and APS-C sensors. The latter was designed for the APS-C camera and when used on the Sony a7/a7R there is a chance that the image will show vignetting. We have tested the LAEA4 on our cameras with a Minolta 100-300mm APO lens (a 30 year old optic that works perfectly), a 90 mm f/2.8 Tamron macro, and our 16-50mm kit lens (A77 camera). All the lenses work perfectly. The 16-50mm f/2.8 lens is designed for the APS-C sized sensor and it is good to see that it communicates to the a7/a7R camera body to "crop" down and use the central part of the sensor. The resultant image is 15 megapixels when using the a7R. As others noted, the focusing speed of the a7/a7R does slow down under dim lighting conditions: the LAEA4 adapter when used with a suitable Sony lens will speed up focusing nicely. I am in the market for an older Minolta AF 50 mm f/1.4 lens to test the low light capability of this combination.

Two things to note.

I have 13+ years of shooting professionally with various DSLRs, from the age of manual focus film camera, to Nikon to Canon SLR and DSLRs, and lately, various M43 system.

I decided to do some consolidation and wanted to see if I can combine some professional work with mirrorless camera, so I decided to try the Sony A7.

A7 blew away my expectation, but the lens system is severely lacking.

As professionals know, it's not the camera, it's the lens [and sometimes, the photographer]. Having functional useful lens for the job at hand is the most crucial element of photography. There were lenses that I used for over 10+ years, while many bodies had came and gone.

That is to say, lenses are important. And that's why I bought two minolta lenses to use with the LAEA4, the autofocus is fast enough in most situations. The adapter is kind of clunky, but at least it works very well.

If you are looking for lenses to fill the super gap Sony leaves behind [come on Sony, no matter how many bodies you make, you can't be a real player until you make good lenses that cover the jobs], this allows you to use the alpha and minolta mount lenses.

Highly recommended if you are looking to shoot some jobs with the Sony camera but can't find the right lenses from just the Sony line up.

Works very well but very difficult to keep clean. The mirror itself is more delicate then a thin paper , way more delicate.

I have bought this item along with the much famed ZA 135mm f/1.8 lens (both through Amazon). This adapter is simple to use, worked straight away out of the box. Comes with from and back caps which need to be kept at hand due to the super sensitive mirror assembly. So far i have been using it for a week and haven't even taken it off the camera! AF is fast and accurate. I am using DMF with the lens and the adapter does not limit any functionality.

The lens mount is very firm and there is no play when lens is attached. Tripod mount built-in is a bonus as it's necessary when using large lenses on the tiny mirrorless camera.

Due to the fact that FE mount lenses are not so readily available and range is limited, this adapter is a must to increase the capabilities and options for A7 and A7R owners.
