It's little heavy, but it comes handy when you have to Metabones and also need to attach lens motors.

It really makes a difference

This DOES work with the FS7, actually...

Id held off on buying this because of the reviews here that state that it cant be used with the Sony FS7 camera-- which is a shame, because the FS7 is a terrific camera, but one of its weaknesses is a native mount that has some flex. Id despaired of being able to use a follow focus with the camera, as this flex would occasionally mean that the follow focus gear would slip from the lens gear. Upon discovering that a friend was using this Metabones lens adapter support on his FS7, I bought one myself-- and it works just fine, even despite the small lip or flange at the front of the camera body! (See attached photos.) I suspect the other reviews may have had rod mount clamps that extend too far beyond the body. I havent yet tried this in the field, but a quick try suggests that the lens mount is much more rigid. There are inconveniences-- two more knobs to loosen if you want to slide rods in or out, a lot of fiddling if you want to change mounts, and the Arca clamp knob falls off easily when loosened (and loses the tiny spring!)--, but the benefits for me are well worth it in the situations where Id want to use this. Ive tested with the Nikon G to Sony E adapter (non-speedbooster) as well as the Metabones PL adapter. My friend uses with the Canon adapter. I havent yet tested with a heavy PL mount lens.

Rock solid and fast

If you're using longer lenses with an adapter, you know that there's always some play between the lens and the camera, which often results in shifty focus pulls. This support not only gives your adapter a rock-solid foundation, but it's also pretty quick to adjust. So if you're switching between standard adapter and speed booster during a shoot, you can do it fast.

Does not work with Sony FS7

It will not fit on the FX9 because the 9's front. There is a "lip" that protrudes keeping the the rod riser from mounting into the Metabones PL adapter. Save your money. Do not buy.

I did find this Metabones to be too short to work well on an FS7. It doesn't extend far enough vertically.
