question

What is the difference between this one and the T model? Thanks.
Asked by: Ronald
I think the T model Is related to the EF to E converter, notice this is a FD to E converter, designed to allow adaptation of vintage FD canon lenses to the Sony E mount.

question

Will this work on a7s mark ii? The reason I ask is because I asked about a fotodiox pro adapter that worked on an a7r mark ii but a user said it wouldn't work on an a7s mark ii. Why would that be? It's the same E-mount.
Asked by: Seung H.
No reason for it not to. Works on my a7ii. Little tricky to mount the lens onto the unit but not the unit on the camera. Good luck!

question

Infinity focus with FD lenses on Sony A5100 or NEX ?Hello, I read everywhere that it's impossible to get infinity focus with those FD lenses. They say the lens will only work for macro. Anyone has ever made landscape pictures with a FD lens mounted on a digital camera ?Thanks.
Asked by: Anonymous
This adapter DOES achieve infinity focus with Canon FD lenses on a Sony E/FE Mount. I shoot plenty of landscapes with this adapter on my Sony A7s. The macro only issue is limited to mounting Canon FD lenses on a Canon EOS mount camera. There are only a couple (poor) adapters that can achieve infinity focus with FD lenses on EOS mounts.

question

Infinity focus ? I read everywhere that it's impossible to get infinity focus with FD lenses whatever the adapter is, whatever the digital camera is ( I have a Sony A5100). You can only make macro photography. Is that still true ? Anyone has ever used a FD lens ( I want to buy a 50mm ) for shooting landscape ?
Asked by: Anonymous
Most of the adapters made for mirrorless Focus to infinity with FD lenses. Infinity focus is impossible with DSLR adapters. I bought the metabones to replace a fodox adapter that fell apart. It was not perfect the center vertical slot was very slightly out of alignment. Nothing a hobie file could not fix in a few seconds. So yes it achieves infinity focus with all my lenses.

question

Would this adapter work with Canon FL lenses? I read somewhere that FL lenses were compatible with FD bodies... so perhaps this adapter too?
Asked by: Paul Y.
Yes, Canon FL lenses have the same bayonet locking mechanism that old FD lenses use to attach to the adapter. I have an 135mm f/2 FL lens that works with my FD-E adapter no problem.
