I'm sure David Arbogast will be able to answer what the improvements are with the MB IV but if I recall, the black material on the inside of the adapter has been improved and the ability of tilting and shifting tilt/shift lenses to their limits has been addressed too.

Your statements are correct Gene. They made the hole a bit larger to address the lens movements better and they improved the interior finish to better inhibit the internal reflections that users were having. I flocked the interior of my mk III, so it will be interesting to see if there are any internal reflection issues with either.

Sadly, I just haven't done the testing to make a definitive statement one way or another on the value of the mk IV over the mk III with TS-E lenses - I might take a moment this weekend to do so. Bear in mind, though, that Metabones specifically modified the adapter to address the real complaints that TS-E owners were expressing.

The shot below was taken with a fully-shifted TS-E 24 II and the mk IV adapter and it has some terrible issues at the top: It is blurry and badly so. I am fearful my adapter may have a poor fit, which may cause excessive blurriness in the areas of extreme shift. I know the lens is softer at edges of extreme shift, but this looks especially bad (to me).

[Sincere apologies if this is a re-post - just posting here with regard to the Metabones IV discussion]

I have a Metabones Mark IV for sale in the Classifieds section if anyone needs one. I sold my last Canon lens.

Had fun with a local Vancouver band: Hell's Gate Blues Band :cool: All shot with A7R and FE35mm. A little over saturated for me but seemed like the band liked that look.

My shot from last night was with the 400mm DO x2 and at 800mm it was still a small part of the frame. I cropped out 2/3rds of the sky. I shot handheld at a high shutter speed. Tonight, if I have clear skies, I may go for tripod and 1600mm--800mm x 2.

I know what do you mean, but i have no choice, also i am using my Sony A7R, so the crop is still strong with details, i will try with 300 + 2x, at least 600 from prime is sharper than 800mm from a zoom when using a TC with both, prime is always a winner here with 2X, and 300 is known for its sharpness, so i think even with cropping it will remain almost sharp i hope, and at the end i can gain more stops.
