    So far I've not been able to find confirmation if the LA-EA3 adapter transmits the lens data (focal length, aperture, lens model) to the EXIF data of the picture files. Not interested in the LA-EA4 adapter for various reasons.

    Anybody know that from own experience? Thanks!

    I am pretty sure it would. If you can wait addie I will have the LA-EA2 soon at home. I am pretty sure that these are based on same principles and the difference is the auto focus mechanism.

    Sony A-mount lenses can be used via the Sony LA-EA1,[17] LA-EA2, LA-EA3, or LA-EA4 mount adapters which provide electronic contacts and electro-mechanical diaphragm control. They allow the body to control the aperture of the lens and provide automatic exposure and Exif data support.
