Vello LA-MFT-CEF Overview

  • 1Description

Make the most of your existing collection of Canon EF/EF-S-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter that will allow you to mount these lenses to a Micro Four Thirds 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. 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. If the lens does not have a manual aperture collar, the aperture will be stopped down to its smallest f/stop. Focusing to infinity is retained.

This adapter enables the use of Canon EF/EF-S lenses on Micro Four Thirds 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.

    Vello LA-MFT-CEF Reviews

    Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Lens Adapter is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 48.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not fit Canon EF lenses LA-MFT-CEF does NOT secure to Canon EF lenses. The adapter lines up nicely, but will not turn and lock into place. The copper pieces inside the adapter catch on the lens mount and prevent it from fully turning into a locked position. I tried it on my 50 1.4, 24-105 and 70-200 with no success. This product does NOT secure to the Canon EF lenses. I will be returning mine for not being as described.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple Solid Adaptor We have many different types of adaptors and brands for our MFT set ups. ?This one is made of solid construction and does the job. ?Not much to say about this adaptor except if you are using electronic EF lenses you have to set the aperture ahead of time and take the lens off of a Canon body while holding the DOF preview button. ?We usually do not change the aperture after shooting a scene so that is usually not a big deal. ?If you just need a quick working adaptor then you can't go wrong with this one. ?If you are using manual EF glass such as Rokinon or Samyang then you will be alright in that department. ?Hope that helps

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Adapter allows too much play If you want an adapter for video shoots and need to pull focus, this adapter isn't going to work. It allows your lens shift all over the place, making for a large bump in the footage every time you rack focus.On set I had to tape down the lens to stop it from shifting... Not very professional looking for my clients, but it worked in a pinch.........

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive but does the job well! I use this adapter to connect my cinema lenses with Canon EF mount to my mft bmpcc. The cinema lenses all have manual focus and aperture rings so this adapter was a great purchase since I had no need for electronic connection to my lenses. It seems sturdy enough and it fits snugly and securely with my canon and Rokinon lenses as well as with the bmpcc. Of course, there is the issue of sensor crop, which this adapter does nothing for, but its better than not being able to use any of this expensive glass I have laying around. It does what it is supposed to do and for the price, its well worth the investment!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quick fix Shooting mainly video on a Panasonic GH4 through a Canon 28-300 L. Does exactly what it needs to, don't expect anything magical, just a coupler for EF lenses to a MFT mount. Goodbye AF, goodbye IS, goodbye aperture, hello $ lens solution.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does NOT fit Canon lenses. The adapter (LA-MFT-CEF) does NOT work with the Canon lenses. The adapter is the right dimensions and lines up nicely, but does not fully rotate or click to secure the lens into place. I tried three lenses, all with the same non-securing fit. I'm returning the product because it did not perform as described. Tried the 50 1.4,my 24-105, and 70-200.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works For last 3 days I have been using this cheap and useful adapter.Now my Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera which I only recently bought from Singapore is able to mount Canon EF-S 10-22 mm and Canon EF-24-70mm f/2.8 lenses. It fits well and locks perfect. I am a filmmaker so it suits to me to operate my machine manually. It is easy. No hiccups. Where is the problem guys. Soon I am to mount my third Canon lens which happens to be 70-200mm. It's relief I can make use of all my Canon lenses which I had bought with Canon 60D. Devi Prasad Mishra

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Faulty Product I bought this to mount my EF lenses to my BMPCC and my canon lenses didn't fit the EF side. I'm not sure they're all like this, but the one I received didn't work.

    question

    I notice in the reviews there's a crop factor mentioned - is this the crop factor caused by using a 35mm measurement lens on the GH4 or is there a further crop due to the adapter use. If so how much? If I mount a 100mm lens what would the final crop be (ish)?Thanks
    Asked by: Anonymous
    This particular adapter is fully mechanical, so any crop factor is going to be from the lens being used on the GH4. Since Micro Four Thirds cameras have a 2x crop factor, a 100mm lens will effectively act as a 200mm lens.

    question

    I know I'm slow here ... but if an EF or EF-S lens is attached to a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera via this adapter, there will not be any way to control the aperture. Am I understanding this correctly? Thanks!
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, this is correct - there is no communication between the lens and camera body, and you will have to set your exposures manually.

    question

    Will this adapter work on Olympus OMD cameras?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    It should work. I bought it for Panasonic GH4. Focus will not work and it will stay at the widest aperture setting. You can't change it. :(

    question

    So with this adaptor I would be able to connect not just canon lenses, but any lens that has an EF/EF-S Mount onto my GH4? Besides it having no communication with the camera, and no aperture ring, why is this product so cheap?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    This is correct- any EF/EF-S lens can be used with this adapter. The fabrication cost of this adapter is very low, and the manufacturer is able to offer this product at a very reasonable price to reflect this and make an affordable product for consumers wishing to use this type of adapter.

    - Does this produce any VIGNETTING (like the Vello adapter version with "Aperture control" ring) when using Full Frame Canon Lenses on Panasonic M4/3 camera? - Does it increase the Full Frame to M4/3 CROP Factor (which is calculated as 2x)? Thank you!

    question

    Will this work with the modern 'focus by wire' system in the new ef-s lenses focus ring? How does it work if they have to be powered thru the connections? I just need manual focus but this seems impossible.
    Asked by: Francisco F.
    NO, if you use lenses that have AF/MF "by wire" (meaning they need to be powered to actually move focus elements), like the Canon "STM" Lenses, then you will NOT be able to focus. However if you use lot of other lenses (Canon L and non-L versions) that have a Manual Focus ring which doesn't focus "by wire" you will have no problems at all to focus. It all depends on the Lens you mount on it. In fact there are LOT MORE lenses with Real Manual Focus Ring than "Focus by wire".

    question

    can lenses without an aperture ring work? If so, how is the aperture set?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Couldn't use any of lenses that didn't have an aperture ring. I'd only be able to adjust the shutter and ISO
