Canon EOS adapter for Sony NEX E mount lenses hands-on test review. Camera for Photography.

Canon lenses for Sony e-mount cameras: what is on the market?
Read full article:

I was thinking to get some sort of adapter for my Sony Nex 7 (see reviews here) to be able mount Canon EOS lenses on it, I have a huge selection of them. After research I found that there are basically two options I have: manual focus adapters (simple screw-in lens mount, no electronic connection) for $15-40, or a serios lens adapter which supports auto-focus and aperture change for over $400.

You can see the whole range of adapters on the market on Amazon: Sony e-mount EOS adapters.

After I’ve done my research, I decided to go with EzFoto Pro (of course Pro! 🙂 Canon EOS lens adapter for Sony E-mount NEX cameras. It had built-in aperture which sometime works (see the video review), and I am quite happy with it.

I did not want to spend $400 for that super cool Metabones (what a name!) Canon EF Lens to Sony NEX Smart Adapter II. In general, I am not going to use those large Canon lenses on Sony Nex 7 extensively and need the adapter for an occasional use (think about “for fun”), and also I like the idea of having something 100% manual in my hands. It brings back the feeling from those good old days when I had my firs SLR, a “Soviet Camera” Zenith TTL. It was cool 🙂

What level of focus peaking do you use? I’v been using High since when you look into the EVF you see less of the focus peaking than when using the LCD but when it’s set to high I come out with a higher throwaway rate.

I’m glad to see someone so dedicated to understanding and explaining these kinds of technologies and products.

Enjoyed the video.  I have Sony A6000, NEX 5 and Nex 5T cameras using 55-210, 16 prime, 16-46 zoom.  I also use a 55 mm prime Minolta with NEX adapter.  I need a zoom lens which is stronger than the 55-210 aforementioned as it is not bringing me close enough when shooting sporting events.  I’m think 300 or 400 mm is the best.  I wanted to see if you can recommend a lens and adapter.  Thank you kindly.

good cam

Sorry, I commented too soon. I hadn’t watched the whole video. I really appreciate your video presentation at the end. Excellent!. I’m considering buying an Nex 5 and I am researching using alternative lenses. Aside from the point of this, the audio is excellent. I am primarily a photographer, but I’m interested in video as well. Quite impressive, the audio. Thanks, Alex.
