Sony’s Firmware Update to NEX Cameras Provides Compatibility with the LA-EA2 Lens Adapter to All NEX Models

December 17th, 2011

Sony_NEX-A-mount_firmware.pngUp until now, the only cameras that
were able to use Sony’s newer LA-EA2 mount adapter were the NEX-5N, the
Nex-7 and the NEX-VG20. That’s not exactly a big lineup, but that
all changed yesterday.

Sony’s latest bit of firmware for the
NEX line of cameras gives them full compatibility with the adapter.
Now you’ll be able to use A-mount lenses with autofocus on the NEX-5, NEX-C3 and
even the NEX-VG10 camcorder. One of Sony’s pro model – the
NEX-FS100U – is getting the update as well.

The big difference between the EA2 and
EA1 mount adapters is in the improvements to focus. You can use phase
detect autofocus on every compatible camera and lens and speed has
been increased significantly.
