    I'm going to an air show tomorrow, and was sitting at my desk putting together a fast, light bag to get some shots. I'm very lucky to have an A7ii, A77ii, and an A6000 to choose from. In this case, I'm favoring the A6000 because of the AF speed, but wanted something longer than the SEL55210. I thought I'd TRY the SAL55300 from my A77ii kit on the LA-EA4/A6000. Not very fast, but a good reach. Looking around the room, like we all do, trying out AF, to see if it will suffice tomorrow, and I get these two snaps. Straight out of the camera, not cropped, handheld, with the WtrC filter turned on. Auto ISO (ISO2000), 1/125 (Shutter Priority), f/4.5, Multi-Pattern metering. My wife LOVES these and now wants them printed and framed to hang in the living room. Go figure. Amazing little camera this A6000 is. You "adapt" an average lens, turn on a little creative filter and get something kinda fun.

    No complaints here.

    Sometimes the best photos are unplanned. :)

    Thanks, I agree. Nothing special, not taxing in any way, but somehow simple and pure.

    Cant see the images. But about question in topic, personally (and seems sony does that too) I consider A-Mount via LA-EA as native.
    Tho being spoiled with a6000 af coverage, i would love to see LA-EA4mkII / LA-EA6 and update in LA-EA3 firmware.

    I love my old Minolta AF lenses. And there are some good third party A mount lenses out there. The LA-EA4 gives you access to whole lot of good glass.

    My choice is 'Adapted' because there is an adapter and not all options are supported.
