Metabones is known for their amazing lens adapters for various camera systems, but probably most well known for their speed booster adapters. The company has just announced the latest version of their Canon EF to Sony E mount smart adapter.
The adapter allows you to connect your standard Canon EF lenses onto Sony E mount cameras like the Sony A7 series, and still have full control of the lens (Aperture, AF, Etc). Basically, the adapter takes the Sony signals and converts them to Canon signals, and acts as a pass through between the lens and the camera. It’s not perfect, but it works pretty well and is a great option for anyone heavily invested in Canon glass looking into the Sony system.
