MonsterAdapter has announced on their Facebook Page details of their new LA-FE1 lens adapter.
The new adapter adds autofocus support to Nikon AF-I, AF-S and AF-P lenses when used with select Sony mirrorless cameras (see list below).
For lenses that are fully support, the adapter will drive both electromagnetic and mechanical lever aperture diaphragms. Fully-manual lenses and screw-drive lenses don’t get any sort of focus or aperture control, but the adapter will work passively with them.
The adapter will work together with lens stabilization when available and also works together with Sony’s in-body stabilization (IBIS).
The adapter also supports Sony’s Human and Animal Eye-AF, as well as high-speed continuous shooting (up to 10 frames per second on compatible cameras).
Here are the cameras that the LA-FE1 fully supports today:
- a7 II (firmware version 2.0 or higher), a7 III
- a7R II, a7R III, a7R IV
- a7S III
- a9, a9 II
- a6100, a6300, a6400, a6500, a6600
The following cameras will work with ‘limited or no AF functions:
- a7S II
- NEX series cameras
The lens adapter also features a built-in Micro USB port for updating the firmware when necessary.
According to MonsterAdapter the LA-FE1 is available for sale in China through its online shop and authorized dealers, but no information on pricing or international sales has been made available at this time.
