Sony

Sony has introduced the latest LA-EA5, a 35 mm full-frame A-mount lens adapter that makes it simple for users to combine advanced camera bodies with A-mount lenses.

Users can now use the renowned autofocus and high-speed shooting capabilities found in the new Sony E-mount camera bodies with A-mount SSM (Super Sonic Wave Motor) and SAM (Smooth Autofocus Motor) lenses, as well as A-mount lenses with no internal focus motors.

Their press release reads,

The LA-EA5 combines a compact design, featuring an aperture drive unit and a newly developed compact AF drive unit. To ensure comfortable operation when used on an E-mount camera body, the new adaptor’s diameter matches that of the A-mount, perfectly aligning with the edges of the mount. The LA-EA5 allows easy operation on full-frame E-mount bodies, even when a vertical grip is attached to the camera body.

Here are a few sample images,

The LA-EA5 is available in October 2020 for a suggested retail price of $249.99 USD and $329.99 CAD.
