Sony NEX LA-EA1 Alpha Lens Autofocus Videos

Here are first two videos showing us the NEX autofocusing a Sony Alpha 30mm f/2.8 Macro DT with SAM, Sony Alpha 18-55 DT SAM and a Sony Alpha 35mm f/1.8 DT with SAM via the LA-EA1 lens adapter. This is now possible with the new NEX Firmware Version 03.

The first video, with the SAL35F18, shows that it's not the fastest at locking focus but it's acceptable.

The 2nd video shows the SAL1855 focusing at an acceptable speed.

The 3rd video, with the SAL35F28 Macro, shows the worst of it hunting to lock focus. It may be because of the aperture and the available light but we can't be certain.

Check out our post with manual focus samples with the DT SAL30F28 Macro.
