    hi, I just found this forum, yay! I am new to the a6000 and hoped you could help. I am in the processing of changing from a-mount to e-mount. currently I am using the LA EA4 adaptor and my a-mount lens. I have noticed that "zone" doesn't work and the eye AF doesn't. it tells me it isn't available on this lens. 35m 1.8.

    is it because I am using the adaptor? I have followed directions pin the eye AF.

    thank you.

    You will not get eye-AF using A-mount lenses.

    The LAE-E4 over-rides the camera's AF system. You are using an SLT AF system built into the adaptor, which I believe is the same as the Sony A58 camera.
