If is the AF system that is the most important the film 7 is to date the most accurate I have used (not necessarily the fastest though it's decent) it is capable of very small micro adjustments even to screw driven lenses.

I don't think David is talking about AF accuracy with the first generation of Maxxum lenses and Minolta/Konica-Minolta/Sony A mount cameras.
What he says is that the lack of distance information those lenses transmit to the camera make really hard to develop a mirrorless AF adapter for E-mount cameras. BTW, Xi lenses were, apparently, extremely good at this, but alas they are not supported by the LA-EA adapters...
