Sony NEX, 6000, Sony 7, Sony 7R, Sony 7S, Sony 7Sii, etc. The PRONTO adapter relies on the phase detection sensors of your camera and is not intended to support contrast detection auto focus. Due to this, focusing is only possible where phase detection autofocus sensors are located and may result in differences in real world performance from model to model. Because the PRONTO adapter relies on phase-AF, not all of the AF features of your camera work; notably the Eye AF & Lock-on AF do not function properly.
