Vello LA-MFT-CEF Overview

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. 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

Basic and Workable

This adapter allowed me to attach my Rokinon Cine Primes (EF mount for my Ursa Mini Pro 4.6k) to my 4K pocket cam body. Be aware that this is “dumb” adaptor, auto focus, aperture control etc is not supported, but on the fully manual Cine Primes this is not an issue. The fit was snug, although the longer, heavier lenses could probably use some support. This is a great value for the money.

Doesn’t fit tight

The fit on the lens is good and snug, but there is too much play on the camera side. This makes the infinity focus a bit blurry. If it fit tight I think it would be fine. If I hold the lens up and tight to the camera, it comes into focus. Not practical for actual use. Some people seem to have had ok luck with it but I imagine that the manufacturing is inconsistent. I’m also using a heavy cinema lens that really strains the adapter. Returning it for something different.

Yes, It Fits Canon EF Lenses

I was skeptical after reading so many reviews saying it didn't fit Canon lenses. I ordered it anyway just to make sure, knowing that I can return it if needed. When it arrived I tried it on all my Rokinon Lenses. Yes it works! Buy it!

If you just want to adapt your lens to a Micro 4/3 this is a good product how ever my pin to release the lens from the adaptor fell out after day 2. Adaptor obviously still works but I have to use a precision screw driver to dismount the lens from the adapter.

Very well made!

I have been quite surprised and pleased with the Vello lens adapters for mounting legacy glass to my OM D M1 II. The fit is tight with no play in the mount for OM, Nikkor, and EOS lenses. Images have been excellent. Nice to enjoy the feel of manual control.

Does the job for manual lenses

Definitely does the job if you're using Rokinon Cine lenses with EF mount.

Simple Solid Adaptor

By Sean

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

I have mixed feelings on the adapter while it is in one respect Well made� the tolerance on the lens side was so tight� I really� struggle to remove it from the lens's� when swapping out lens's� and I' am no light weight at 6'1 185. I am hoping as it gets used� more� that it gets easier to remove from the lens's

- 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!
Asked by: PABLO
But I can't recommend it because you won't have any aperture control.

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.

Will this adapter work on Olympus OMD cameras?

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. :(

Is it compatible with a panasonic gh4
Asked by: Anonymous
The Vello EF/EF-S to micro four thirds adapter will allow you to mount Canon lenses on the GH4, yes.
Answered by: Christina S.

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.

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".
