Vello LA-CEF-M42 Overview

Make the most of your existing collection of M42-mount lenses with this M42 Lens to Canon EF/EF-S-Mount Camera Lens Adapter from Vello. This durable adapter will allow you these lenses to be mounted to a Canon EF/EF-S-mount camera. Precise construction makes it easy to attach an adapted lens to a camera body and keep it secure during use. Infinity focus is guaranteed, ensuring proper functionality when shooting at long distances.

The adapter is made from a durable zinc alloy for long life. 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. Focus and exposure will need to be set manually, or metered in aperture priority (stop-down) mode.

Enables the use of M42-mount lenses on Canon EF/EF-S camera bodies, meaning an existing collection of lenses can be used on later generation DSLRs and mirroless cameras.
Precision machining securely holds the lens in place without any wobble.
Infinity focus is guaranteed by placing the lens at the correct distance from the sensor, doesn't prevent shooting distant subjects.
Made from a durable zinc alloy, this adapter will withstand many uses for long life.

The Vello M42 Lens to Canon EF/EF-S-Mount Camera Lens Adapter would work in adapting an M42 lens to a Metabones speed booster so long as the speed booster is an EF mount.

question

Is this adapter slim? I would like to adapt a Peleng 8mm fisheye to a Canon 7D to reduce vignetting. There is a Canon EF Mount version but with the cost of more vignetting. Any help on this would be appreciated. Thank you.
Asked by: Paul
This adapter is very slim and I haven't seen any vignetting on my 5DkmIV. I'd watch out for any flange that might stick out from the back of the lens - using Pentax M42 mount lenses, they have a flange for actuating the shutter and my mirror smacks it, which is not good at all. Just take a loot at the lens and if something stick out of the mounting side, I'd get a different adapter that gives you more room.

question

Does this change the lens focal length for crop sensor or full frame? Does this change the lens f stop? Thanks!!
Asked by: Anonymous
It does neither. If you are using 35mm lenses with an M42 mount they will crop according to the crop factor of the sensor of the camera you are fitting them to with this adapter. I used this adapter together with a Metabones Canon - Sony E-mount adapter too. No change in focal length other than the sensor crop factor. There is no F-stop change either. Hope this helps!
