Never used an EOS M. But I would say not faster. For example the 70-200II with the metabones is just a tad faster than the 85L on a 5DIII. It tends to hunt quite a lot though.

Real Life Test...Canon 5D MKIII Vs. Sony A7

Both Canon and Sony had the 85mm f/1.8 at 1.8 and a manual flash with bounce card. (flash was at 1/4th power)

Canon 5D3

Sony A7

My Findings..... both cameras compliment each other. Would i take the Sony A7 to a shoot without my Canon... No i will not....

Overall, these cameras are both great!

I just got these lenses from Ebay at VERY great deals... the glass on these badboys are SPOTLESS!

I also ordered a Mid 1960's Canon FL 135mm f/2.5...
the difference between the FL and FD lenses is where the aperture rings are located...
the older FL rings have then aperture ring in the front of the lens... FD has them on back.

funny! the first thing I did when I received my A7 today was mount an old canon lens on it and put it on top of my iPad. :)

Has anyone tried loosening the metabones? It is super tight and I fear it is going to damage the lens mount or at the least scratch it up.

nice, even the 50 looks big on that little body. how's the noise, i've read it's up to ISO 1600 and then gets pretty bad.

not using the matabones... the only benefit from the metabones is the apertures... the focus is TOO TOO slow...

i've been using cheap FD to NEX mount for my FL and FD lenses.

IMO usable up to 3200, even the 5d2 delivers cleaner files at ISO3200. which is rather disappointing if you ask me. but don't tell that to the canon bashers who are only shooting at base ISO :p

david: nice pictures with the MF lenses, sorta makes makes you wonder why we pay so much money for EF lenses these days. lovely kids and wife btw :)

I don't know about the A7 but surely the A7R is able to deliver decent high ISO files.

This is ISO 6400 SOOC.

Love that expression: very human like, but there's enough light in the room.
try shooting in the dark? streetshots?

The room was actually quite dark.

So far I find the high ISO to be almost as good as on the 5DIII. Even though the first purpose of this camera is not to handle the high ISO it is always a nice addition.
