Is there anyone out there who has used it on the new Sony Ar7II with the metabones adapter? What is your experience? Sharpness, auto anything work?
Asked by: lia R.
Metabones works great, don't forget the Sigma MC-11 that does also a great job! With both adapters there is no vignetting, no loss of sharpness (only a tube, no glass element involved), the 17 TS-E is an all manual auto nothing.. ; ) I use the Sigma with an Sony A7R2 and that improved a lot the image quality I had from the Canon 5DMK3 files I use to have.. ; )
