Looks like a transition or investment into Sony's full frame mirrorless system, won't be so painful after all..

From the company who invented the "lens turbo adapter", now comes a new generation electronic Canon EF to E-mount Full Frame adapter. This is great news for all current Canon EF lens owners that want to buy the soon to be announced NEX-9 Full Frame camera.

The full frame NEX will be announced later in October, if it doesn't get leaked first. Rumor is that it's sensor will be even better than the D800 sensor, which in it's turn is better than anything Canon has to offer. :) Exciting times ahead!

Hmm.. maybe it time to take a serious look at the NEX.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

This makes me very happy. I have always wanted a small and compact full frame camera.

If I can buy one from Sony and use my EF lenses on it, then YAY!

It won't be compact once you put EF lenses on it, though, save for a few older non-L primes.

I've got on EOS-M and it's even kind of ridiculous with an SLR kit lens adapted to it.

I'm not looking at it for the compactness of the camera, but it may be a solution to Canon's lack of sensor design improvements. This could be a killer landscape/portrait/pro​duct setup, anywhere where low ISO, high DR is advantageous.

Is there any reason the current NEX adapters won't work? It's the same mount, after all.

Well yes, but I meant that it will be nice to be able to use EF lenses sometimes. Especially Canon's TS-E lenses.

I'll say the same as gjl711. The sensor will be the main selling point.

I'm told the new NEX-9 will actually have a new, presumably larger mount. I recall someone calling it FE mount. Could be wrong, but it makes sense.

But it's also been said that current NEX lenses will be able to be used on the full-frame NEX, albeit in crop mode (due to the size of the image circle produced by these lenses, not due to the mount itself).

Sony sensors have great potential but at the moment only Nikon are producing brillinat IQ with them, Sony seem to be behind both Canona and Nikon.....and yes I have a Nex5r which I have used extensively but it does not match either Canon or Nikon on APS-c image quality.

Digital camera bodies come and go, but good lenses have a loooong shelf life. I feel like a lot of Canon users aren't married to the Canon camera body, but really like their lenses. The ability to pair up some of Canon's greatest lenses with a cutting-edge full fame body sounds like a good plan to me. I'd take a look.

Too expensive to switch once you get invested. Canon seems to know this. The Sony could be a game changer.

I would look at this as an alternative, if I can use my lenses.
