    Poor quality product

    By Rick

    Comments about MTF Services Ltd Canon EF to Sony F3, F5, and F55 Adapter:

    I purchased this adapter for my Sony F5 and almost immediately sent it back and bought the much nicer (and more expensive) Optitek prolock adapter. The two largest problems with this adapter are, one, the locking pin on the adapter is smaller then the hole on the lens that the pin locks into, allowing a small amount of rotational play in the lens after it is mounted which is unacceptable when trying to pull focus. The second issue is that the lens mounts on to the adapter rotated about 30degrees towards the operator side of camera. I understand that the intention is to turn the witness marks on a canon still lenses to the side so a 1st AC can see them, this is however very impractical for a few reasons. One issues is that when using EF mount cine glass (e.g. canon cine, Zeiss CP2, Rokinon) the focus marks are placed toward the ground and are out of view. Another problem is that some lenses have a built in image mask (e.g.. canon 24-105 f4 L) and when this is turned it can create aberrations. ALso any aspherical lens will not be aligned properly to the image plane.

    Also, as this adapter is a dumb mount it makes working with canon e-glass impractical so it would be best suited to work with manual apeture glass such as rokinon or nicer cine glass, rendering the intention of the offset mount moot.

    Be warned that this product may not be what you think it is.

      Very well made. Reasonable price. Bit tight but not an issue. Wish there was a method of relaying data and activating autofocus and stabilization. But alas...

            YES, mtf quality build, HOWEVER, ON THE EF SIDE THE MACHINING IS DEFECTIVE FOR NON-NATIVE EF MOUNTS, BY THAT I MEAN THAT IT WORKS FINE ON EF MOUNTS ON CANON LENSES BUT DOES NOT REALLY WORK ON 3RD PARTY EF ADAPTERS FOR OTHER LENS BRANDS; AS IT STANDS, ONE NEEDS AN ELEPHANT TO PUSH THE ADAPTER ONTO THE EF MOUNT [LEITAX FOR EXAMPLE] AND A TRACTOR TO PULL IT OFF AFTERWARD; THE TOLERANCE IS NOT QUITE RIGHT
            THIS MAY CHANGE IN THE FUTURE, IF THEY RE-MACHINE THE ADAPTER
            IN ANY CASE TEST IT FIRST WHEN NOT UNDER PRESSURE OF A JOB DEADLINE
