Sony updates the firmware of many E-mount lenses and the LA-EA3 adapter

There are new firmware updates available for 10 full-frame E-mount lenses.

The 70-200mm f/2.8 and 85mm f/1.4 G Master lenses as well as the Planar 50mm f/1.4 have received an update that improves the compatibility with the Sony A9 when shooting at 20fps and during the start-up time. The firmware also improves the autofocus tracking performance during continuous shooting.

The 70-200mm f/4 G, the 24-240mm f/3.5-6.3, the 28-70mm f/3.5-5.6 and the 24-70mm f/4 have all received an improvement to the iris driving during continuous shooting.

The 50mm f/1.8 and the 24-70mm G Master get an improvement in autofocus stability.

Finally the LA-EA3 A-mount adapter has been updated to focus continuously when shooting up to 20fps with the A9.
