Details

If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save the cost of purchase on new lenses. Fotodiox offers a range of adapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters. Adapting larger format lens to smaller format sensors (i.e: large format to medium format, medium format to 35mm, 35mm to micro 4/3) provides excellent edge-to-edge sharpness. The smaller image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration by using the 'sweet spot' or center of the larger lens image circle.


This Fotodiox lens mount adapter is made with high standard precision. The all metal design and polished surface is designed to guarantee smooth mounting and long lasting experiences. This adapter allows Canon EOS (EF / EF-s) Mount Lenses* to fit on Sony Alpha E-Mount system camera bodies with full communication between the lens and body. Auto focus, aperture control and other functions should operate as normal while using this adapter (depending on the lens used*). Infinity focusing is guaranteed.

This FUSION adapter translates the Canon and Sony camera language for each other so that they can communicate allowing you to use Canon lenses on the Sony E-Mount cameras with auto focus and iris control. But much like a joke or parable from one language told in another, not everything always translates properly. So here are some things to keep in mind when using the Canon to Sony FUSION adapter:
  • Only Canon-branded lenses introduced in or after 2006 are officially supported. Autofocus may be disabled for older Canon lenses and most third-party lenses (including most Sigma, Tamron and Tokina lenses).

  • Lens compatibility is designed to work best on Sony a7, a7R, a7S, a7 II a7R II E-Mount cameras
  • Auto Focus can be slow or even not function with varied model lenses and even different lenses of same model (check chart below)
  • Continuous AF and video AF are not supported as performance may be unsatisfactory.
  • The first two autofocus attempts are used to calibrate the lens and as a result may not lock successfully on the target.
  • Half-press the shutter release button again and autofocus will lock successfully.
  • Autofocus may have difficultly locking onto subjects which are very close to the nearest focusing distance of the lens.
  • Autofocus accuracy depends heavily on the design and working condition of the lens. Lenses with hidden problems which may not be apparent on Canon DSLRs will lead to inaccurate and unreliable autofocus on Sony E-Mount cameras. Typical problems of this kind that we have seen include an rough/erratic autofocus mechanism (e.g. getting stuck intermittently at a certain focusing distance), a faulty/worn-out distance encoder or other faulty/worn-out internal sensors.
  • By default Sony cameras have 1/3 stops, however F1.2 is a half stop, so when that lens is wide open, F1.3 is displayed even though you’re actually shooting at F1.2, but if you really need the metadata and camera it to say 1.2 instead, you can set the camera to do so by setting the the EV dial on the camera to zero, then change this setting: Menu > Camera Settings > Exposure Step > 0.5 EV
     We don't want to scare you off from using the FUSION adapter, more often than not there are no problems with using the adapter; but every now you may come across one of the above issues. Hopefully knowing and understanding what the product does and what some of the possible drawbacks are before using the adapter will make it a more enjoyable experience from the start.

Canon EF-S lenses are APS format with a very hard vignette edge making them suitable for Sony APS cameras like a6000, a5100, a5000 and NEX – but will only cover APS-crop mode on a7-series cameras. Fullframe crop shows a hard edge vignette with Canon EF-S lenses.
 
EF Teleconverters
Canon EF Extenders transmit electronic functions with Smart Adapters, however
with the accompanying light loss you may also lose AF ability with certain lenses
Canon Extender EF 1.4x III + Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Lens Accurate AF-S with Wide, Center and Flexible Spot Focus Areas
Canon Extender EF 1.4x III + Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Manual focus only
Canon Extender EF 2x III + Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II USM Manual focus only
Canon Extender EF 2x III + Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM Manual focus only
NOTES: All adapters offer electronic functions using this Canon 2x teleconverter on this F4 lens but none will AF, likely because F8 is the max F-stop with this combination.
 
Third-Party Canon EF-Mount Lenses
Only Canon-branded lenses introduced in or after 2006 are officially supported.
Autofocus may be disabled for older Canon lenses and most third-party lenses, including most Sigma, Tamron and Tokina lenses and all Contax N lenses modified by Conurus.

Customer Found Issues:

 

* Canon EF-S 15-85 IS

 * Canon EF-S 55-250 IS In both cases, as I reach the long end of the zoom range (~70mm for the 15-85; ~200mm for the 55-250) the maximum aperture size jumps to f11. I.e. the range f11-f22 is available, but f10 and wider aren't presented as options.

Also AF doesn't lock on
