The camera does not auto focus (AF) when using a lens mount adapter.
Auto focus (AF) when using a lens mount adapter
Whether or not AF is available depends on the lens mount adapter and A-mount lens being used.
When using the LA-EA1 or LA-EA3:
- AF is only available when using a SAM/SSM lens and if the AF/MF switch on the lens is set to AF.
- AF does not operate at all during movie recording; only manual focus can be used.
When using the LA-EA2 or LA-EA4:
- If the lens has an AF/MF switch make sure it is set to AF.
- If there is no AF/MF switch on the lens, press the FOCUS button on the camera.
NOTE: Single-shot (AF-S) or Continuous (AF-C) can be used when recording still images.
