I ordered a EOS M and want to get the lens adapter. I've heard some people have ordered the Meike lens adapter and have luck but haven't found a topic on it.

I didn't want to clutter up the picture thread with conversation so I thought I would start one.

So anyone have luck with the Meike adapter? I keep seeing them for $35 on ebay, seems worth the risk compared to the $140 for the Canon one.

I have the Meike adapter and it works as advertised. I have tried all of my lenses with the adapter and not a single problem with AF or IS. I figured for the price, its worth a shot. The adapter is not something I use often so I figure why spend so much for OEM.

I am in the same situation, I just bought an EOS-M and want an adapter but dont really want to spend the $$ on a canon version. If the meike version works good I think I am going to give it a try

Well I gave in and just ordered the Canon one for $114 on ebay. I figure it's not worth the risk if this could be the only camera I take a few thousand dollar vacation and miss shots over the $70 difference.

Glad the Meike one is working out for people. I'll post once all my stuff comes in. Should have the EOS M, 22mm, 18-55, flash and the convertor. All for under $600. Seems like a fair deal for a second camera.

Have the Meike, cost all of $39 on eBay, including shipping. Works great, and the focusing of the 100mm f2 is actually more accurate with it than on my XTi. Then again I really only use it with that 100mm as a backup to the 22mm, as opposed to utilizing it all the time with a wide range of glass. If you're only going to use it occasionally, the Meike is probably fine. If you're going to be shooting "thousands" of vacation shots with it, the price difference (per shot) is probably worth stepping up for the full-on Canon version.

Does anyone have photos of the Meike mount? Is it just like the extension tubes I have from Kenko ? Those were pretty sturdy and nice as well so I wouldn't mind trying Meike..

Looks pretty much the same as the canon adapter. Not much design differences when its just a ring to adapt lenses.

A simply ebay search...

Thanks for that and I was hoping for a bit more photos than the ads on eBay and some peoples feedback on the metal portion of the ring build quality wise and blah blah. I should just be quiet and order one. lol

I can't see why one would be better than another? It doesn't have any optics in it, just a mount with contact pass throughs. Am I missing something?

The metal parts feel solid and there's no jiggle when the Meike is used (link (external link)). The mounts have a brushed finish so it isn't as shiny as the Canon one, but it works all the same. I've had mine for a couple of weeks and haven't had any issues.
