Metabones Announces Canon EF To Sony NEX Mount Adapter With Aperture Control.


Metabones has announced a Canon EF to Sony E Mount adapter with electronic aperture control. They are using Conurus out of Vancouver, Canada as their distributor. Conurus has been modifying Zeiss lenses to work with Canon bodies for quite some time now. Some of you may be familiar with their Contax N series 17-35mm f2.8 conversion to EF mount. Now it looks as if they are making electronic adapters. I have not had the chance to test this bad boy out yet but I expect it to actually work. It is quite expensive at around four hundred bones. It might be worth it for some, however I would strongly suggest waiting for some real world tests to emerge before dropping the coin. They are currently out of stock and are not accecpting pre-orders. I picked this up via EOSHD on Twitter.
