Lens correction such as peripheral shading, CA and distortion


  • Vignetting at corners may occur for certain EF-S lenses because they are designed to cover a 1.6x crop image circle but Sony NEX has a 1.5x crop sensor.
  • Image Stabilization lens requires adapter firmware version 02 or above. After flipping the IS on/off switch on the lens, you may need to press the WO button on the Smart Adapter for the change to take effect.
  • A small percentage of samples of Contax N Planar 50/1.4 may be incompatible with NEX cameras.
  • A third party zoom lens may need to be registered with the Smart Adapter first in order to detect its maximum aperture.
