MonsterAdapter has announced their LA-FE1 adapter that provides electronic AF and aperture support with Nikon AF-I, AF-S, and AF-P lenses on newer Sony Alpha series E mount cameras. The adaptor does not support AF with screw-drive lenses (like the Tokina 10-17mm or converted Nikonos RS 13mm) but does work with teleconverters.
International pricing and availability are to be confirmed.
