Metabones MB_PL-E-BT1 overview

  • 1Description

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.
The Adapter has been tested with the following cameras:
A7S (in "APS-C Size Capture" mode)
A7R (in "APS-C Size Capture" mode)
A7 (in "APS-C Size Capture" mode)

    Metabones MB_PL-E-BT1 reviews

    MB_PL-E-BT1 PL to E-Mount Adapter with Internal Flocking is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pl to EMount for A7Sii I bought this adapter for my Sony A7Sii so that way as I start purchasing good glass it will go on my camera. This metabones adapter is great. I have yet to throw on anything wider than a 28mm Zeiss CP2, but I didn't see the adapter on Full Frame, which is respectable to me! Also, I was worried that it wouldn't fit very well (ie be too snug or too loose...) the fit is great. Love it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautifully manufactured, but it may not be compatible. Metabones manufactures beautiful equipment. I own 3 of their EF-E adaptors for my FS7 & a7S's. I'm giving 1 star so you can easily find this review, but I want to be clear at the top, I DO NOT HATE IT. I bought this PL adapter to accommodate another DP's lenses. 2 Canon's (15.5-47 & 30-105); 3 Sony Primes; & 1 TLS (Nikon 80-200 modified). The "True Lens Services" lens (modified Nikon 80-200) is a beautiful piece of workmanship and the PL mount fits flawlessly with this Metabones do the Sony Primes. However, the Canon Cine Zooms (twice the cost of the TLS lens) DO NOT fit this Metabones adapter. The cut depth of the key slot on the Canon lenses is 2.9mm (measured from the outer edge of the mount to the inside of the key cut) The TLS mount is cut 3.9mm from the outer edge and the Sony's are cut 5mm from the outer edge. Because of the shallow cut depth on the Canons, the key on the Metabones adapter will not seat in the key slot on the Canon lenses. Now I'm jammed up with a beautiful piece of equipment that doesn't serve me.� Of course, B&H will take it back, but where am I to turn next? I've been looking over the blogosphere for answers but haven't found any. Best of luck and buyer beware.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Already put to use! I used the Metabones PL/E adapter last week on a FOX Sports shoot in Tampa with Jamies Winston. I mounted a Canon Cine 30-105 on my FS7 and was very happy with the mount. I used a Zacuto support for the lens. The Metabones adapter is very well built and solid. The locking to the camera and the lens was very secure. Be advised this adapter does not connect with the camera electronics. But as I view a zoom lens as a variable prime I would operate it manually regardless. I can recommend this adapter with no reservations.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from As Advertised. Good Quality I am using this Mount on my Sony Fs7 camera in combination with an Abacus B4 to PL adapter. The primary lens is a Canon 5.2x6 I use the camera in a very stripped down form, so I am not supporting the lens. (I know that is not recommended)The mount is totally solid in this configuration. I was worried because my other Metabones purchases were a bit of a disappointment. The fit was sloppy, and the back focus was incorrect. That is not the case with this item. Be aware that a center crop will never be as sharp or as low noise as a full sensor oversampling for HD.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and perfect I purchased this mount so I could use Xeen cinema lenses on a Sony a7sii. I trusted the name and just bought outright, and absolutely love the adapter. Ready to use straight out of the box and works perfectly. With a cage the adapter fits a little tight, but other than that this was the perfect adapter for the setup. The price did hurt a little bit, but at least it's sturdy as hell and reliable.
