Can i use lenses like tokina 11-16 for sony aplha and get autofocus and full control?
I checked that with an ir remote i can control it inside the housing, but what do you think about it?

AF and Iris is supported with the adapters, and the SLT LA-EA2 would probably be a pretty fun combo:

Hi , I'v just tested VG20 with Tokina 11-16 over LA-EA2 , works ok here is the result , but real issue is adapter works with iris minimum 3.5 , you must switch off AF ant the open iris if you want to , another issue is control of this camera , lanc works but only limited features ( very limited indeed ) strat stop function is enough for very limited period Equinox box hm ... I do not want it .. alternative russian made in st Petersbug , looks good , but with very limited controls and expencive arround 3k eu ....

I got the VG30, you can access shutter, exposure, WB, DB gain all by a button and scroll wheel on the outside so you do not need to open the LCD.
You can also put any of them in auto or manual mode except the WB but it gives you a huge range of choices.
The cool thing about this little camera is you can shoot in 50P then in post run it at normal 25p or slow mo 50P on a 25P timeline.
It also takes amazing 16 meg raws.
The viewfinder is excellent.
There is push a button on the outside to swing from auto to manual focus to.
There is a new NEX 10-18mm lens out but of course like DSLR's you are stuck shooting wide, wide, wide and wide lol
The best way to shoot video underwater is use a true video camera like a SONY PMW 200.
