LA-EA1 Mount Adapter
"LA-EA1" ... uh, what?
Yes, this is the adapter that takes a SONY (8-contact) A-mount lens and allows it to attach to a SONY (10-contact) E-mount lens mount. It is basically as $200 "buffer-ring" (which creates the precise optical gap between the rear element of the A-mount lens and the sensor of the E-mount body. It has no optic glass inside of it.
Now, I have to admit, I am more than a little confused at how you can actually add electrical contacts and what do you get back? I mean there are TEN contacts. In a lens? :p What the heck do the other two do? Are they planning for in-the-lens-stabilization, because a stabilized sensor certainly is not in the NEX 3 or 5 body?
Remember when just five did the job? I do. God, I am getting so old. :(
Anyway, it has arrived ... so whatever comes NEX ... I have it covered. :D :p :rolleyes: (pun intended)
I saw the NEX5 the other day. It is sweet.
Looks nice (and especially small). A shame about the hot shoe.

How you two dudes holding up, suffering with Canon equipment like you are?
I have to say, things got kind of slow without your SONY inputs. The new members are not contributing much at all ... so either they are not using their cameras ... or are waiting for the proper subject to show off.
Can you imagine ... all summer long ... no "bikini" shots from these newbies? It's sad ... :(:p
suffering with a 7d ? lol
i doubt it.
I am suffering.....
Too hot outside and I'm not a summer person!
But once the wife goes on her personal vacation at the end of the month, I'm gonna go on my own tour of photography hopefully :-)
They have adapters for just about anything on ebay
Canon forum has slowed too, it's just DCRP. Nikon's about the same, maybe a bit slower.

Personally, I have been spending the bulk of my days in class or working, so the camera is not seeing the "street time" it should. Happily, the grass is green and not that awful and sick looking brown color. I see that the roses are blooming ... and the weather seems stable. Hey, I'll take it and consider myself fortunate.
Now, looking a bit further south, the non-word "broasted" (baked and roasted) comes to mind. :rolleyes: Also, storm frequency and intensity seems a bit more than the usual.
Anything above 25 Celcius is too hot for me.
In fact my ideal temperature is 15-22C.
