Vello LA-CEF-MD Overview

Make the most of your existing collection of Minolta MD-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter that will allow you to mount these lenses to a Canon EF/EF-S-mount camera. Precise construction makes it easy to attach these adapted lenses to your camera and keeps it secure during use. Infinity focus is guaranteed, ensuring that you get proper functionality our of all your optics. In order to achieve infinity focus, an optical glass element is used, which features a coating to minimize the chance for glare and reflections. Additionally, the adapter is made from a durable zinc alloy and features a matte black finish on the inside to reduce the potential for glare and reflections that can negatively impact image quality.

Although the lens will fit physically, autofocus, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), and other functions dependent on communication between camera body and lens will be disrupted by the lens adapter. You will need to focus manually, and to set exposures manually or meter in aperture priority (stop-down) mode. Focusing to infinity is retained.

This adapter enables the use of Minolta MD lenses on Canon EF/EF-S-mount cameras, meaning you can now use your existing stable of lenses on your current camera. It is also very secure, holding the lens in place without any wobble sometimes associated with the adapting process.
Thanks to precise manufacturing, this adapter is guaranteed to provide infinity focus by placing the lens at the correct distance from the sensor. This allows you to make the most of your lenses and doesn't limit you from shooting distant subjects.
Made from a durable zinc alloy, this adapter will withstand many uses and won't wear or break in the way soft brass or cheap plastic would. Also, an internal matte black finish reduces reflections and glare, ensuring your images look sharp and contrasty.

Satisfied with the product

Works as expected and promoted. Solid feel when attaching to both the camera and lens. Pricing comparable to others offering similar products; I also own, and like less, the same type of adapter purchased earlier from a competitor

As important as good customer service, timely delivery and quality inventory is expert guidance - which I received from “Phil”. Who needs a great product that doesn’t solve your problem? Phil identified my needs quickly and accurately. Thanks!

This adapter does not lock onto the camera. There is no mechanism that clicks or locks. Once I realized it and I stopped using it so my Minolta lenses wouldn't fall and get destroyed. poorly made.

Minolta to T6i lens adapter

I had an assortment of a few older decent quality lenses from an 80’s Minolta that we’re in pristine condition that I was hoping to use on my T6i. So I called BHPhoto to see if it was possible. I phoned in and the help provided me at BH was phenomenal. I was asked about the lenses I wanted to use and within a few minutes I ordered the adapter. It was in stock and arrived in a few days. The adapter is high quality and I expected no less from BH. It goes on to the body with a nice pronounced click and the same as well when attaching the lenses. The lenses are all manual but come in handy for different shots unti I can afford better af-is lenses. The cost was quite fair and moreover my confidence with getting the right items from BH is high. Thank you.

Does this adapter incur a 1.4 crop factor like some others? I do realize that some light is lost. Thinking of using it on a Viltrox EF to EF-M focal reducer?
Asked by: Barri
The crop factor would be camera-dependent. In the case of a Canon DSLR with an APS-C sensor, the crop factor would be 1.6X.
