    Lightbulb 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? 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. (pun intended)

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
