Metabones MB_PL-E-BT1 Overview

If you want to use your existing PL mount lenses on a camera with a Sony E-mount, you need an adapter. The Metabones MB_PL-E-BT1 PL to E-Mount Adapter with Internal Flocking mounts to your camera's lens port and allows you to use PL mount lenses with your camera. Although this is not a permanent conversion, the adapter features a removable support foot to take the strain off of your camera's mount.

The adapter features internal flocking to reduce internal reflections, Chromium-plated brass front and rear contact surfaces for corrosion resistance. The hard front and rear contact surfaces serve to maintain the adapter's tight tolerances over time, ensuring the correct flange focal distance. This is a mechanical adapter that does not pass any electronic lens control or metadata.

The support foot is detachable from the mount by removing two hex key screws. The foot itself is Arca Swiss compatible, and incorporates a 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole for optional supports.
Maintains correct flange depth between lens and image plane.
Infinity remains unchanged, so the lens does not need to be re-collimated or shimmed.
Brass construction protects lens mount, a chromium satin finish makes the adapter corrosion and wear resistant.

What is internal flocking?

What is internal flocking?
Asked by: Mark
Internal flocking is when the inside of the adapter is covered in a black velvet-like material to avoid any light reflections within the adapter that would effect the image.

question

Will this allow me to use a Zeiss CP.2 lens (which covers full-frame 24x36mm) on a Sony A7SII? I know the CP.2 lens is available with an E-mount, but I can't afford to buy one yet, and the local rental shop only has CP.2 lenses with PL-mounts.
Asked by: Ajit
One of the beauties of the E mount system is that with the correct adapter, you can put virtually any lens on it. This Metabones MB_PL-E-BT1 thus will allow you to use a PL mount lens on the a7S II perfectly.

question

I see this has been used with various PL mount lenses and each PL mount can differ slightly. Has anyone used this with the A7 and Sony PL Primes?
Asked by: Jeremy
While we are not aware of any specific lenses that have been tested on this adapter, it will work with Sony A7 cameras in Super 35mm/APS-C Mode. We would imagine it will work fine with the Sony PL Primes.

Will this adaptor work using a sony fx9 full frame and rokinon Xeen primes?
Asked by: dave
I'm not sure exactly about the Xeens, but I can confirm i've used it successfully on my FX9 with Cooke S4, Zeiss Super Speed Mkiii, Tokina Vista, and Fujinon 20-120 Cabrio. If your Xeen's are PL mount, I can't see why they wouldn't work.

Will the servo on the fujinon 20-120 pl zoom lens work with this adaptor and the Sony FS7?
Asked by: Edward
We're afraid not. This is a mechanical adapter that does not pass any electronic lens control. Your best bet when using the Fujinon 20-120mm PL Zoom lens with this adapter would be to power the lens' servo through a D-Tap cable, B&H # FUSA206KR70P.

Asked by: Nandan
The Metabones MB_PL-E-BT1 PL to E-Mount Adapter with Internal Flocking is not a speedbooster adapter and will not help if you want to use it in full frame and not super 35 mode.
