I do have to say, as adapted lenses go, this is not a permanent solution. In fact, if Canon really shows no FF MILC interest I might start moving to the GM 24-70, 70-200, 100-400 sooner than previously planned.
The thing is, when they hit focus, the adapted lenses are absolutely perfect. I mean, better than how they do on their own systems. If my Canon lenses appear to be on focus with my Sony, they are perfect.
But when they don't want to focus, they are stubborn mules. Today I was asking the EF 70-200 to focus very close to MFD. It would focus for a second, but just as I would go to stab the shutter, it would abandon focus and rack to infinity. It did this multiple times.
On the bright side, I gave up and just manually focused with the EF 70-200 and it worked perfectly. So the EVF still stepped up to allow me to get the shot. I'm moving faster towards Sony.
Softball varsity season is now the only thing holding me to Canon.
rent the 100 - 400 hehehhe. it might swing you over sooner.
