To check the list of compatible lenses for your camera, check the Lens compatibility information website.

For the Konica Minolta™ (Maxxum®/Dynax™) lenses, refer to the following: Compatible Konica Minolta (Maxxum/Dynax) lenses for the α (alpha) DSLR and SLT cameras .

NOTE: Sony® E-mount camera can be attached to Sony A-mount lenses and Konica Minolta (Maxxum/Dynax) lenses with a lens mount adapter. The camera may require a firmware update.

IMPORTANT: You may need to set the focus mode to MF and manually adjust the focus when using some SAM lenses with the LAEA1 or LAEA3. Also, make sure the firmware for both the mount adapter and camera body is updated to the recent version. Downloads are posted on your model support page.

NOTES:

  • When using an A-mount lens and mount adapter, be cautious of camera shake because there is no anti-blur function with this configuration.
  • For the NEX-VG900: By using an A-mount lens together with the LA-EA3 mount adapter, you can take advantage of the full frame image sensor and record images with an angle of view equivalent to 35 mm film.
  • For the NEX-VG900: Images are recorded in the APS-C size when an E-mount lens, DT lens, or the LA-EA1/LA-EA2 mount adapter is attached to the camcorder.
