I would only truly recommend this to those who have already invested in an NEX camera and possibly the original LA-EA1 adapter plus any A-mount lenses. For those who are considering purchasing this and an NEX camera off the bat, I would suggest that you look into a native A-mount camera instead. $400 for the LA-EA2 and $600 for an NEX-5n body, you're already pushing over a grand and you don't even have a lens yet. Now for my review: So far, I've had nothing but praise for this adapter. I have a few A-mount primes that I enjoyed using as manual only, but now with the fast auto-focus, my NEX-5 feels like a whole new camera. Physically, it's not very heavy and not too large. As a bonus, this adapter adds something new to grip while holding the camera. Those who think the NEX is too small will enjoy this bonus very much. Remember that the LA-EA1 had auto-focus, but it was extremely slow. The LA-EA2 blows that adapter out of the water in terms of performance. Another added benefit is the new selection of lenses available to your NEX system. Sony is slowly releasing new E-mount lenses, but they may not please everyone. Auto-focus also performs well in video mode. It's fast and the green boxes will flash to indicate focus. I don't believe there are any stabilized A-mount, so take this into consideration.

First off I am a Sony fan, I believe that they are going in the right direction with their cameras. That being said, I bought and returned the LA-EA2 due to its lack of image stabilization and this becomes apparent as you start using longer lenses with this adapter. I have the NEX 6 a really great camera, I also have a SLT A65 also great. As I see it the NEX 6 with the 16-50 lens along with a SEL 55210 is all you really need. I bought the NEX 6 for its size it seems to me that it can be a really great street camera.

Pros

  • Fast, alows more lense options, flawless with silent motor lenses

Cons

  • expensive, can be let down by cheap lenses with noisy engines

Best Uses

    Comments about Hanover Sony Alpha NEX Camera Mount Adapter:

    Got this for my NEXvg20, got a few A-mounts to compliment my E-mounts, i use fast lenses with noisy motors for fast paced video shots where audio is not an issue, then silent motor for close ups. A good buy for someone who uses a lot of lenses for different shots. Make sure you get a Zeiss prime, with SILENT motor AF!

    Didn't work

    By 

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Hanover Sony Alpha NEX Camera Mount Adapter:

    I bought a new copy along with two lenses (SAL 24F20Z, Sigma 150-500). With both, the electrical contacts were intermittent at best. With the Zeiss, a slight twist of the lens relative to the adapter would fix/break the connection. With the Sigma, it almost never worked. So, the contacts were not aligned properly and/or there was too much play in the mount. It was this way right out of the box. So I've just immediately returned it for another copy, we'll see how that one does. When this thing worked, it was great, and I'm really looking forward to using a good copy.

    Fast focus for action and video-zooming

    By 

    from Connecticut, USA

    Comments about Hanover Sony Alpha NEX Camera Mount Adapter:

    I had owned LA-EA1 for the mirrorless experience without committing to E-mount lens purchases. I found mirrorless-focus to be inadequate for action-shots or video-zooming. This works really well for both. The focus motor is very noticeable in video-sound on my NEX 5g, though. SSM and USM lenses were quiet with LA-EA2, for me.

    AF in video : great

    By 

    from Bangalore

    Comments about Hanover Sony Alpha NEX Camera Mount Adapter:

    Great piece for vg10. Been using this for a month now. Gives extra ordinary AF from all lenses. But on video mode, only f3.5 onwards. For f1.4 prime lenses video, MF is only option. With an additional investment on a shot gun mike, the picture is complete and perfect.

    worth every penny

    By 

    from delray beach, FL

    Comments about Hanover Sony Alpha NEX Camera Mount Adapter:

    this product just took my NEX5 to another level, I've purchased it with 50mm lens, and I cannot stop taking pictures of absolutely everything around my house. I thought i would be happy with this purchase, but felt kind of bad of spending more money on this adapter and a lens than a camera itself, but hey, as I said, it is definitely amazing purchase.

    Extends my NEX-5N Versatility!

    By 

    from Philadelphia, PA

    Comments about Hanover Sony Alpha NEX Camera Mount Adapter:

    I originally had the LA-EA1 and discovered it's limitations quickly. Returned that and waited for the LA-EA2 and WOW, what a difference. I currently have the Sony Alpha 50mm 1.4, Minolta Maxxum 135mm 2.8 and the Minolta Maxxum 85mm 1.4G lens and they all work with great precision and speed. If you do not care much for the current E-Mount lens lineup, then get the LA-EA2 and you will be able to use any AF Sony/Minolta lens that is compatible with the Sony A55. Even though the price is steep, after using it, I would say it's worth every penny. BTW - no idea why the review prior to this one receive 1 star. Because something "is in question"? Seriously? Please share your reviews only if you have used the product.

    compatibility

    By 

    from Bangalore, India

    Comments about Hanover Sony Alpha NEX Camera Mount Adapter:

    Surprised that the 'compatibility' of cameras does not list the most 'daring' VG-10. Had called the customer support enquiring about this, but was not sure if this adapter will be compatible with the VG-10 / VG-10E. A clarification will help hundreds of thousands of VG-10 'pioneers' who invested huge sums on this 'path-breaking' hybrid camera in full faith.
