Sony LA-EA4 Adapter
Adapts Sony Alpha A-Mount& Minolta MAXXUM lenses to Sony E-Mount Mirrorless Cameras
Sony LA-EA4 adapter (adapts Sony Alpha or Minolta MAXXUM AF SLR lenses to Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras, about $348). enlarge. I got mine at B&H ; I'd also get it at Adorama, at Amazon or at Crutchfield. You also can get them used at eBay for about $225 if you know How to Win at eBay.
This ad-free website's biggest source of support is when you use those or any of these links to my personally-approved sources when you get anything, regardless of the country in which you live. Sony does not seal its boxes in any way, so never buy at retail or any other source not on my personally approved list since you'll have no way of knowing if you're missing accessories, getting a defective, damaged, returned, store demo or used adapter. Get yours only from the approved sources I use myself for the best prices, service, return policies and selection. Thanks for helping me help you! Ken.
This little gizmo lets our mirrorless cameras replace SLRs. Heck, this adapter and the A7 is less expensive and better than the plastic A99 fake SLR!
It works with both the screw-focus and electronic focus lenses.

$348 new, late July 2017.
$298, early July 2017.
$350, December 2013.
It really works!
The less expensive LA-EA3 adapter doesn't provide autofocus with screw-focus lenses. It only couples exposure and aperture information. I don't know if it allows autofocus with electronic focus lenses.
Be careful of the piece of glass in the middle. It's easy to bang, and if it gets tweaked, AF will no longer be accurate.
