  1. There is a well documented bug with editing long AVCHD clips in Premiere Pro. One of the affected camera is the Sony NEX-EA50UH. Adobe acknowledged the existence the bug some time ago and recommended transcoding files as a work around, Audio and Video glitches | AVCHD footage (1080 59 94i).

  2. All good, but they also need to fix the ongoing problem of the preview clips in the media browser from refreshing before you get to the bottom (or even middle) of the group of preview clips. Acrok HD Video Converter gor Mac is a good software to convert AVCHD or .mts files to QuickTime MOV and DNxHD MOV on Mavericks 10.9.
