    I purchased this adapter so I could use my Canon 24mm Tilt-Shift lens with my Sony a7r. I have tried the extremes of shifts and tilts at the lens's best f stops (f11 & f16)and the results are terrific. I created an image employing shift at left, center, and right and merged the images in PS and the adapter worked perfectly. The adapter doesn't cause vignetting with this lens which I've read can be a problem with other brands. It also passes the f stop info to the file which is very helpful in LightRoom. I am very pleased with this product. When I ordered it B&H warned that there was a three week backorder on this item but they delivered it to me within one week.

    The adapter does everything it says, but mounting it, especially the first time, takes a lot of force and made me concerned it would damage the camera and lens.Though it does allow electronic controls, remember that does not prevent a Canon lens from having snapping aperture values. You'll need a variable ND to get smooth exposure changes.

        Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Adapter:

        This adapter feels very solid with an 85mm Canon lens mounted on my Sony A7R camera. It doesn't have any electrical communication with the body of my camera so it has to be used in manual mode however the alternative adapters cost 10 times more. I especially like the built in tripod mount which removes a great deal of stress from the mount on the camera.

                I tried to mount my canon EF/EF-s lens to the adaptor to Sony A6000. The adaptor can easily mont on the A6000 but it is too tight for my EF lens to mount on it. I tried 4-5 EF lens. My EF-S lens can easily mount on the adaptor but the STM lens ( 10-18mm and 40mm) can't manual focus because they require power from the camera.

                      I have an old Canon Rebel T1i and wanted a way to use my old lenses after getting a Sony A6000. This adapter fits the bill and while it doesn't allow auto focus or aperture adjustments (You'll be shooting wide open), the Canon lenses work well on it. The A6000 has focus peaking, so manual focus is not too bad. Good for subjects that are not super fast moving, and it means I don't have to sell off all my Canon lenses. The NEX lenses are much more compact, so I don't end up taking the Canon lenses with me often, but now at least the option is there if I need it.

                        I bought this as a much less expensive alternative to the competitor and it has been great.

                        The first one I got was fitting too tightly so I called Vello and their customer service was fantastic. They said it is rare but it happens. Between them and B&H I was easily able to return and get a replacement which is working wonderfully.

                        Well worth the money!

                          I use this for my Sony NEX7 with cine lenses which are manual already so it was a cheap solution that works great. Obviously if you have auto focus lenses you might want to look into a more expensive option but for manual / cine lenses this is the perfect fit.

                          Very easy to set up out of the box. Attaching and removal are easy and straightforward. A great way to sharpen your manual focusing skills. It even has an attached mount for tripod for your bigger lenses.

                              This is a must have for the FS100. It gives me endless options for lenses. If you have the money def. purchase both the speed boost and the standard version. On some of the wide lens it gives a bit of a look with a circular polarizer. WE went to 4x4 and haven't had any issues. Overall a must purchase as always BANDH was here the next day.

                                  Diving into the mirrorless rhealm, I was reluctant to be without my faithful Canon EF lenses. Great lenses are an investment and this adapter makes them even more versatile. The adapter is solidly built and the fit to both lenses and body feels very secure. There are adaptors out there that provide a more integrated and automatic experience with your camera body, but at more and 13X the cost. Brush up your manual focus chops and enjoy the precision of your existing lenses for a tiny investment.

                                    I was skeptical that an adaptor this inexpensive could be any good. I was pleasantly surprised. It attaches easily and firmly. Even though you basically have to shoot wide open so what? That's why I am using it, to get the benefits of a fast lens.

                                      Fantastic. I can use my Canon Lenses on my new Sony nex-7 camera. It is hard to give up good old friends!

                                        I am using this adapter to use Canon EF lens with my Sony NEXFS100. This adapter is light, durable, machined to precision, easy to use and worked great with the Canon lens. I also own the Nikon adapter.
                                        Both are excellent to own because they allow me to use different lens on the NEXFS100.
