MonsterAdapter LA-KE1 Pentax K to Sony E lens adapter firmware update v03 released


A new firmware update version 3 was released for the MonsterAdapter LA-KE1 Pentax K to Sony E lens adapter

LA-KE1 firmware v03 released, the third G Driver II empowered lens adapter from MonsterAdapter

January 1, 2023, Shenzhen, China. MonsterAdapter is pleased to release the v03 firmware for Pentax K-mount to Sony E-mount electronic adapter LA-KE1.

By following LA-EA4r and LA-FE1, new firmware of LA-KE1 v03 also adds new focus drive algorithm: G Driver II, which effectively improves the auto focus performance of K-mount screw-driven lenses on Sony mirrorless cameras (including AF-S single focus and AF-C continuous focus). According to the team tests, the focusing speed in many scenes has been able to equal or exceed the Pentax SLRs on last E-mount cameras. Which will make your shooting experience more enjoyable.

Note 1: G Driver needs the support by the camera, please see below for the list of compatible bodies. In case of a suitable camera, the adapter will automatically enable the G Driver I or II, and other cameras will continue to use the existing driver.

Note 2: Due to lens technical reasons, G Driver for LA-KE1 is only available for screw-driven lenses supported by LA-KE1, lenses with SDM/DC/PLM motors will continue to use existing focus algorithm. If the lens is a dual-drive lens, the screw-driven mode can support G Driver, while the SDM mode will continue to use existing one.
