by DownLaw No image stabilization, why?
This thing is great for people the want or have to use the vast number of a mount lenses available.
The problem starts with that lack of image stabilization on Sony lenses. This means you can't use the say 55-300 lens in low light without a tripod. This means no walking around exploring with it and take shots of opportunity. If you really want image stabilization you will have to buy third party a mount lens with it built into the lens. Sony, why did you leave image stabilization out? I am hoping this is something they are planning to fix with a firmware update.
The auto focus is a bit noisy, but I don't do much video so it isn't a big problem for me.
Sony, please add image stabilization.

Rated 3 out of 5 by clipper Great Item "BUT"
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.

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!

Rated 3 out of 5 by geshel Didn't work
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.
