Looks like they have done some work on the product and it's working pretty well with A7II and A7rII

For the second video, I won't do a line-by-line translation, but the idea is that the adapter can take lenses as heavy as the 1st gen 90mm summicron, or around 700g, with the AF still functioning. Using the adapter with the lens focus set at minimum focusing distance can reduce its minimum focus distance by up to 60%. In the case of the CV 35mm F1.2, the MFD can be reduced from 50cm to around 25cm.

I wonder how reliable the tiny lens-moving motor will be.

i know its designed to work best with pdaf cameras, but i am curious how well it works with the a7s and sii, especially since those cameras work best with M lenses. anyone know?
