The LanParte Dragon Kit with Metabones EF to E-Mount Smart Adapter is a stable solution for rigging up your E-mount camera with EF-mount lenses. By securing the Metabones lens adapter in the Dragon rig, all stress from the lens is removed from the camera and supported by the rig. The Metabones adapter communicates with EF mount lenses that have electronic contacts for focus and iris control. See below for more information on the individual items included in this kit.

The LanParte Dragon Kit is designed to support your camera and lenses with no strain on your camera lens mount.

You can just as easily switch the camera or lens out.

Metabones Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Sony E Mount T Smart Adapter (Fifth Generation)
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.
