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.

I had an old Canon L lens and an adapter that worked with my Sony a7RII, but my new Sony a7RIVA didn't work with them, so I got this puppy. Everybody's happy again. Everything works the way it's supposed to. Can't ask for anything more than that, right?

Great for photography

If you have older Canon full frame lenses, this is a great addition to keep using them for photography. If you are a video pro, do not buy this. It doesn't work in video. Auto focus doesn't work, and the clarity is subpar.

Terrible, does not work. There is supposedly a firmware update but no photos anywhere on how to attach the adaptor to the computer.

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.

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.

Focusing issues

By Dotty
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2022-05-25

This adaptor works in attaching my 6 pound 28-300mm Canon lens to my Sony A7RIV, but the focusing is intermittent at best. This lens is too heavy to carry and use in manual focus, I expected the same quick, tack sharp focusing I obtained when shooting with my Canon 5D Markiii. So it's going back. I'll wait until Sony make a 28-300mm lens.

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.

The autofocus depends on the type of lens you're using. The accuracy of the autofocus also depends on the lens.
