commlite, metabones 4 copycat, but does not display proper exif.

viltrox, metabones 3 copycat, displays exif that is slightly off. Commlite will be better for tiltshift lenses, but by how much, I really cant say. IMO, skip the EOS adapters, and get cheapo fotga's for 11 bucks a pop. Not worth the price if you dont need AF and electronic aperture. I can honestly say that my EOS adapter hardly gets used.. Start looking at FDn glass from the canon museum.

I'll be surprised if you still keep your fuji stuff, manual glass is simply amazing with the sony setup. Far better than anything I've used.

Interesting stuff, thanks! The only problem is that I have lots of lenses in lots of mounts... I have several PK mount lenses, C/Y, M42 and OM. I just figure it'll be easier and ultimately cheaper to get the one adapter.

I'm surprised all those can fit canon. There are dumb EOS adapters on fleabay.

something like this: http://www.ebay.com …Tubes&hash=item​4158c3425f (external link)

should be fine.

Yeah, that's along the same lines of what I found on Amazon http://www.amazon.com …&keywords=e+to+​ef+adapter (external link)

I just wasn't sure if the flange would be wide enough for FX, but I guess it'd have to be since that's just how the mount is... I'll go ahead and order a cheap one, thanks! :) Can't wait for it all to get here, it's from a private seller on Amazon (the camera) so hopefully they'll put it in the mail tomorrow.

EDIT: Actually, I just found one that has a tripod collar, sold! :) http://www.amazon.com …&keywords=e+to+​ef+adapter (external link)

If someone was to purchase a Sony a7R what Metabone is the correct one to order?

Same question but different camera, which Metabone for the Sony a7S?

Thanks

Lucas, I use a kaavie adapter (same as viltrox II). Gives AF, is and exif. Was only £70 on Amazon. The only issue I have spotted so far was that the exif for my canon 16-35 IS shows as a 16-35 OS so I assume it thinks it's the sony one

If possible I always want an adapter that communicates EXIF data - very helpful in post-processing. I don't have a smarty adapter for my Nikon lens, and the lack of EXIF data makes my distortion-correction applications (Lightroom, DXO Viewpoint) go absolutely berserk. Fortunately I can correct verticals OK with Capture One, but in DXO Viewpoint, even when I try a manual correction it destroys the image (it "corrects" the verticals, but squishes the image massively (crazy stuff like a 400 x 10,000 pixel aspect ratio). And Lightroom's Upright goes awry as well. Very frustrating and it only ever happens with photos taken with the 14-24mm.

That said, is there something I have perhaps overlooked? Is there some way of manually telling the a7R that a 14mm lens was used? It reads as 1mm in LR. Using adapted lenses on a Canon reads as 50mm, if memory serves.

I figured the same issue as my legacy glass. Create your own profile for both ends, level all of your shots and crop in post for composition. Sorry, no simple answer.

The most important thing I do when shooting the samyang 14 is dead leveling. Tilt up or down, and I end up with significant distortion/cropping.

Well, there is one easy answer: buying a used D800E to dedicate to that lens. :lol: People are complaining about Sony driving down resale values, but used D800 resale prices have really plummeted too.

I may never follow through with it, but I'm considering it all the same. :)

David, when I had the rokinon 14 2.8 I bought an AF confirm chip and installed it. It let me program the chip with the focal length and an f stop value (value didn't change in exif if you changed aperture though). Cheap and easy to install.

I'm not sure if you get a nikon one though

I have the Nikon 14-24mm lens. Being a full AF lens it has that chip built in, but sadly I haven't found a Nikon to E-mount adapter that uses it. I wonder why Nikon lenses are not as well supported by adapter manufacturers.

Are you suggesting adding another chip to the 14-24mm? I'm afraid I would be at a severe technical disadvantage there.

Quick question, I'm making a trip to Hong Kong and will be there for 2 weeks. I am going to be basically walking around shooting all day. What are your thoughts battery-wise? I've got 4 right now- three aftermarket, which don't last as long probably 75% of the stock battery. Is this enough? I figure I'll be out for probably 10-12 hrs, could maybe charge if needed when stopping for lunch/dinner, but don't want to get stuck with nothing.

Also memory-wise, I plan on bringing three 64GB cards along with a 1TB drive that I'll back up to daily. Does that make sense?
