Sony LA-EA2 Lens Adapter

Sony already offered an A-mount to E-mount adapter, the LA-EA1, but the LA-EA2 adds a translucent mirror and continuous phase-detect autofocus. It should work with the NEX-VG20 (see photo below) and other NEX cameras (including possibly the NEX-FS100.)

Price around $400, and shipping in November. According to Engadget, owners of the NEX-3, 5 and C3 will need a firmware upgrade for it to work, which raises the question whether it will work with the NEX-VG10 and FS100 without a similar update.
