Metabones MB_EF-E-BT5 Overview

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 Smart Adapter. 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.
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.

Works Well But Beware.

I used the Metabones adapter with a Sony A7R IIIa. Works very well! Tried it with the new Sony A7 IV. I couldn't change the F-stop! Tried several lenses and no luck.

Works great!

I had originally bought the vello version and had to return it twice because it would not work on lenses that it claimed it would work on. Got this instead and it works perfect on my Sony a7iii!

It works very well for both my Canon lenses --a macro lens. and a 70-300 mm zoom lens--to attach to a Sony alpha 7s camera. Good clear pictures!

much better than others

Pretty good, but not perfect

This one works better than Sigma one in my opinion, once you attach it to the camera and lens. But you'll have to make sure it it attached correctly with blue light lit. So it delays the shooting when you have to be super fast to shoot.

Works Great for Canon EF Lenses

I did my research and then rented this adapter before I bought it to make sure that it would do what I wanted. Before I bought a new Sony A7R IVA body, I wanted to make sure that I could leverage my investment in Canon EF lenses and still get the focus performance from the camera/lens combination. I wasn't ready to buy all new glass. I shoot mostly in Manual mode and found that the camera/lens combination with the 5th generation Metabones adapter performed beyond my hopes. The focus was fast and spot on! It makes me question why I struggled with what may have been state of the art Canon bodies and lenses a decade ago, but have frustratingly slow now. With this adapter, my Canon EF 24-70 f2.8 and EF 70-200 f2.7 lock in focus amazingly fast, with the Metabones adapter as the translator between the Canon lenses and the Sony body. Almost no hunting to find the right focus. There is a small learning curve in getting to truly understand the newest Sony focus modes and focus area, but a solid day of practice and playing with a variety of shooting situations make has allowed me to deliver amazing results. I initially had some concerns that the weight of the lenses with the extra connection by using the adapter might cause problems, but the mount joints are rock solid. This adapter has let me deliver shots that I could never have taken before. Check to make sure that the firmware is updated to the latest version to minimize lens incompatibility. The Metabones adapter will let me leverage several thousand dollars of investment in Canon lenses and take advantage of the performance of new Sony sensors and focus firmware. Well worth the investment!

If you switched to Sony from Canon, lenses will still work

I went Sony from Canon in 2014 at the time very few Sony lenses and needed time to save for Sony Lenses. This adapter has been around and modified and works great. This was a gift to my brother for I gave him a A7iii I had extra with the FE 1224 f/4 and FE 24240 that would get him started but he also has a Canon T7i and many lenses. Also Canon has some nice glass and this keeps them in your bag till you can afford Sony glass. There is a Canon FD and Nikon adapter also. I used to go to estate sales and be given cameras just because I was interested and were in great shape, old film glass is very fast and with prism filters that digital post can not come close to. Sony has IBIS, manual focus peaking colors, and zebras making manual mode unbelievable!!! This makes old glass more valuable.

Does this work with the Canon 400mm f4 DO lens?
Asked by: Julie
Yes this will work with the Canon 400 f4 DO lens if you need autofocus in both photo and video. However, if you are just looking for autofocus in photo, the Sigma MC-11 does have better autofocusing performance.
