    Did you get the new Commlite "Pro" version? I find the aperture lever far more responsive. The old version would blow exposures when stopping down. I'm curious to see how the Viltrox works, as I've been happy with their other adapters in terms of build quality.

    Yes it's the "pro" version.

    Does Not Work! Waste of $300+
    I tried it on an a6300 and a7II. It does not auto focus any of my Nikon lenses and the Sigma lenses "hunt" for focus until I give up.

    What lenses are you using? I mainly use it with the Nikon 1.8 primes and Sigma Art lenses with no problem.

    Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 VRII
    Nikon 60 f/2.8 D macro
    Sigma 18-35 f/1.8 A
    Sigma 50-100 f/1.8 A
    Sigma 15 f/2.8 Fisheye

    The Nikon lenses do nothing. They just sit there and don't even try to focus. The sigma lenses hunt for focus and never lock on and I finally give up.
    Part of the reason I got into Sony mirrorless was that I could use some of the high dollar lenses that I already had. But sadly I find that isn't so.

    You could have a dud adapter? I'd check the firmware in-camera. The 70-2002.8 VR II and Sigma 18-35mm are listed as being compatible with firmware 6.0. Lenses like the Sigma 15mm 2.8 FE have no motor drive and would work better on the Techart AF adapter.

    BTW - The 60mm 2.8 Macro isn't supported.
