Please Sony, Update the LA-EA4 Adapter!
The new Sony a99 II offers the Best AF system on the planet. It’s dedicated 79-point PDAF sensor would offer the perfect upgrade for Sony’s LA-EA4 A-mount lens adapter! It would offer a HUGE leap forward compared to the dated (by Sony standards) 15-point PDAF sensor used in Sony LA-EA4 adapters.
Ideally, an updated LA-EA4 II Adapter with this 79-point PDAF system could combine with on-chip PDAF sensors of future mirrorless cameras to offer Hybrid AF with Sony A-mount lenses that matches the blazin’ fast AF and highly sensitive performance of Sony a99 II.
Chances are that such an adapter would might not be able to work in conjunction with on-sensor PDAF with any current cameras but at least 79-point PDAF beats 15-point PDAF any day.
Please Sony. Just Do It!
