Metabones MB_EF-E-BT6 overview

  • 1Description

Bring out your Canon EF and EF-S mount lenses for use on a variety of full-frame and APS-C format Sony E-mount cameras with this Metabones EF to E Mount T CINE Smart Adapter. This cinema-styled electronic adapter features a positive-lock lens mount that will ensure that your adapted lenses are secure. Further improving on previous generations of Smart Adapters, this fifth-generation model now features a rubber gasket to protect the camera's mount from dust and moisture, offers a status notification LED light to check operation modes, and a dedicated switch that controls in-body image stabilization of select cameras. Also, this version is compatible with the Sony PXW-FS7 Mark II video camera.

This adapter is equipped with numerous capabilities thanks to the use of a high-performance 32-bit processor. The features include support for both phase-detect and contrast-detect AF systems as well as the ability to control the aperture from the camera body. Smooth iris effects are possible as well on select lenses and 5-axis stabilization is available thanks to communication of distance information with supported lenses. Also, it features a programmable function button, enables electronic (focus-by-wire) manual focusing, transmits Exif data to the camera, and works with in-lens image stabilization. Additionally, distance and zoom is displayed on certain camcorders and mirrorless cameras, auto magnify can be enabled, and it can automatically switch into APS-C mode depending on the lens used.

Beyond electronic communication, the adapter has many physical advantages as well, such as a black felt flocking on the inside of the adapter that prevents reflections. For larger lenses, there is a removable Arca-type-compatible tripod foot with a 1/4"-20 thread on the base.

Allows users to adapt a Canon EF/EF-S-mount lens to a full-frame or APS-C Sony E-mount camera.
Positive-lock lens mount provides extra security when attaching large lenses.
Electronic contacts permit transmission of data between the lens and camera enabling autofocus, auto exposure, image stabilization, aperture control from the camera body, saving Exif information, and more.
Status notification LED light on the adapter will show the user what mode the adapter is currently in.
Dedicated switch for controlling in-body image stabilization.
Programmable function button for rapid access to commonly used settings and features.
Support for phase-detect AF with the a7R II, a7 II, a6500, and a6300 cameras.
Compatible with Sony PXW-FS7M2 (FS7 Mark II) camera.
Smooth iris support with select Canon (2009 and later), Tamron (SP series 2013 and later), and Sigma (2016 and later) lenses.
Enables electronic manual focusing on lenses, such as the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2L II, that use a focus-by-wire system.
Support for distance and zoom display, auto magnify, and auto APS-C Size Capture settings on select cameras.
Internal felt flocking prevents reflections.
Removable Arca-type compatible tripod foot with 1/4"-20 thread.
Powered by camera body.

    Metabones MB_EF-E-BT6 reviews

    Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Sony E Mount T CINE Smart Adapter (Fifth Generation) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Metabones CINE Adapter I've long used the Metabones Mark III & IV Canon EF - to - Sony E smart adapters to mount a set of Carl Zeiss manual-focus ZE-mount Otus and 'Classic' Canon-compatible lenses to Sony A7R and A7R Mk. II cameras. The Metabones adapters have performed well with these lenses, however I've always been slightly dissatisfied with the slight lens play characteristic of any twist-lock Canon mount. Very occasionally, in bright sunlight, I've noticed streaking which I attribute to possible light leakage (my adapters did not have the nonreflective interior flocking added to later versions). In hopes of improving matters, I acquired the new Metabones CINE Mark V adaptor, which prevents lens rocking or twisting by clamping the lens securely. The new mount should also reduce wear on the lens's electronic contacts and engagement fingers. I have successfully used the CINE adapter on the following Zeiss 'ZE' mount lenses: Classic 35/1.4, 15/2.8, 135/2.0; and Otus 28/1.4, 55/1.4, 85/1.4. The adaptor fit and finish are superb, and the device completely fulfills my expectations.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Adapter Just Avoid My Pitfalls Early On Love this adapter. Communicates with the Canon lenses I have to retain the internal autofocus features very well. The main reason I didn't want to get any non canon cameras was due to the limitation of features not jumping from camera to lens but this adapter solves that problem and very well to boot. The only hiccup I personally had was that this adapter acts sort of like a PL mount in that they lens sits in the adapter and then you lock the mount around it. So instead of the normal sit, slide, and click like when you put your lens on the 5D or something like that you just sit it in the right spot and then tighten the mount to lock it in. Took me a second to figure that out. The other quick recommendation I have is to update the adapter and download the software associated with it. You do have to go in to the software and check certain features like automatically enabling autofocus in video mode, things like that. Weird that this isn't checked off out of the box but once you do it is good to go.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from C-I-N-E adapter. This is a CINE-adapter. A couple of reviews took issue with the mount causing their fingers to hurt when shooting stills but this is intended for cinema-style production. And it isn't intended for stills shooting. �If you are shooting video you are likely using some sort of hand grip mounted to the camera and as a result your right hand fingers are never going to be between the mount and the camera body when shooting. Your left-hand fingers are going to be on the focus ring. �If you are holding the camera in a still-photographer manner, then no, the CINE adapter isn't for you. Get an adapter that isn't intended for cine-style shooting.� Another complaint was that the lens does not click-lock into the mount and the PL-style of the adapter can be fiddly. This isn't a quick-change adapter and, to me at least, the "CINE" designation suggests that it is not for run & gun shooting but productions of a deliberate and measured pace of shooting. It is for more methodical "Cine" type of shooting. �Ideally, you have a MB Cine adapter for each lens. The adapter never comes off once mounted, thus negating any concern over the mounting process. One and done. �If you are regularly going to be swapping the mount from lens to lens, the standard non-Cine adapter is better for your need. Same if you are shooting fast-paced 'Run & Gun' style where speed is of the essence.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rock solid As primarily a video shooter who uses still lenses for cinematic purposes, my only complaint about the prior version of the Metabones adapter (IV) was that there was some shifting when I used lenses with a follow focus. This adapter solves that. For anyone shooting video, this is your adapter.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't fit Zeis EF-compatible lens(es) The locating pin in the lens side is too large, and does not fit (at least) the Carl Zeiss 35mm / F1.4 Canon EF-compatible lens. My intent was to replace my current Metabones Mark IV EF - to - E lens adaptor on a Sony A7RII camera

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works great but poor design Adapter works well but it is poorly designed, for your fingers will suffer when shooting still, amazing that a specialized product like this can have such a significant flaw that makes it impossible to shoot for long period of time

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good adapter for video but has some pitfalls As far as I am aware of, this adapter currently is the only one on the market that provides a positive lock with electronic contacts from Canon EF to Sony E. What this means is that you can get a rock solid connection between the your Canon EF lens to the front of the adapter. So no play whatsoever for doing focus racks.� But on the flip side you must remember that the Sony E mount is spring loaded so from the camera side you will get a bit of play / movement on heavier lenses. (This is true for all adapters) The solution to reduce all play is to lock this adapter to a cage via something like a Metablock from Lock Circle.� Also note that you need to be very careful when you remove / attach your lens as the lens will fall straight out of the adapter when it is fully unlocked. Also note that although this lens provides an electronic connect that works great for video. For photo you don't get fast autofocus. This is more of an adapter that you would use for video with manual focus. Sum up: Great for video work with some considerations to note. But bad for autofocus photography.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY I bought this adapter without doing enough research and it is a horrible concept. Check reviews on Youtube for this product! It basically requires two people to change the lens and sometimes it gets tightly stuck on the lens. Both my 70 - 200mm and 24 -105 mm canon lenses do not fit well into this design. It is not an easy operation as it should be for changing lenses. Now, I'm stuck with this product because I threw away the original packaging.
