Does image stabilization in body work with this mount adapter?

Yes, when adapting a lens to a camera with IBIS (in body image stabilization), the camera IBIS still works. This is true with all adapters, not just the Monster.

I don't see most Pentax zoom lenses in the list, will this work on lenses such as the Pentax HD PENTAX D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6 DC AW Lens? I have that and a couple of other really great lenses that I would want to use if I purchase the Sony A1 and am hopeful these lenses are supported.
Asked by: Jordana
Pentax HD PENTAX D FA 150-450mm f/4.5-5.6 DC AW Lens Pentax has a built-in DC type autofocus motor, but no provision for screw drive autofocus. For that reason the Monster Adapter LA-KE1 Magic Ring Pentax K Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Adapter is not compatible.

Will there be one for Fuji X mounts please?
Asked by: David
Although we're not aware of any plans that Monster Adapters has to release a model with a Fuji X mount, the FotodioX Mount Adapter for Pentax K-Mount AF Lens to Fujifilm X Camera, BH # FOPKAFFXRF would be a suitable alternative. https://bhpho.to/2T97S7K
