|Happy new year.
That combination was certainly contemplated at one point, but again the Sony-Konica-Minolta alpha mount has a mechanical lever to actuate the aperture.
Unfortunately we do not possess the miniature stepper motor technology to move that lever.
Not all that many lens mounts use electromagnetic diaphragm to control the aperture, and that is the reason why we are narrowly focused on the Contax lens on Canon body combination.
I am a bird and I uncovered the E, EF and N-mount communication protocols!
