A leaked diagram of the second-generation NEX-to-Alpha lens adapter, dubbed the LA-EA2 (rolls off the tongue, don’t it?), will apparently include a translucent mirror that also appears to incorporate a phase detection AF sensor for fast and precise AF acquisition on the upcoming NEX-7 and NEX-5N.
The current LA-EA1 NEX-to-Alpha lens adapter is rather sluggish for AF acquisition on compatible models; however, it lacks any mechanical AF optimization.

More & more Sony is starting to tempt me. Not sure how I feel about that. I guess I’m wondering why Canon & Nikon are taking so long to come up with something new from a design standpoint.
