EF lenses

Sony A7 + Metabones Mark IV

This body is a such a gem paired with the Metabones Mark IV EF to FE mount.  ICPix has been playing with the Sony a7 + EF glass and can report this body paired with this adapter gives really good results with all our EF lenses inclusive of Autofocus. We have tried the Canon 17-40 f4, 70-300 IS f3.5-5.6, 85 f1.8, and Sigma 10-20 f4-5.6.  Its not all rosy because the autofocus can search a while especially in low light. WE also found that the only lens in our stable with no autofocus operation is a dated EF 50 f1.8 (plastic fantastic).  But even this, as with all the lenses listed, can utilize manual focusing and in many cases relatively rapidly.  This is due to the focus peaking function of the Sony A7.  We were also able to use a 430EX Speedlite under manual control.  We look forward to using this lovely combination on coming shoots and will post images as soon as we can. In the meantime check out a couple of reviews from our friends at The Camera Store and samples here:
