Vello LA-CEF-M42 Overview

  • 1Description

Make the most of your existing collection of M42-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter that will allow you to mount these lenses to a Canon EF/EF-S-mount 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 M42 lenses on Canon EF/EF-S-mount 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.

    M42 Lens to Canon EF/EF-S-Mount Camera Lens Adapter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nicely made product Yay! - I can use my old Takumar Pentax lenses - glad I didn't get rid of them. This adapter works well. It is a bit heavy but it's beautifully finished.Just be aware that it is all-metal. Mounted on the EF adapter for my EOS-M, it caused an error message and stopped the shutter from firing. I fixed it by applying a layer of tape to the inner flange in the area of the contacts, so it wouldn't short-out the contact pins. It now works very nicely with my old manual lenses.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Doesn't Work with EOS Adapter needs modification This adapter works great AFTER you fix the biggest problem with it which is that it doesn't work with a metabones IV adapter. The metal adapter errors out when it touches the contacts on the EOS adapter.I solved this by putting duct tape on the adapter where it touched the contacts which fixed it and now it all works fine.I am going to have to look * for a rubber ring I can glue to it to prevent this from happening permanantly.Otherwise it is a great adapter for my vintage pentax lens collection.I used it with an a7Rii and a Metabones IV and a fotdiox adapter

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun. Lets me mount Takumar MC lenses to my Canon 60D. Using vintage lenses on a modern camera is pretty fun. Very solid steel construction, mates perfectly with both the EOS bayonet and M42 threads. Provides a very interesting look, with more green and blue saturation than many modern lenses. Worth it just to broaden your horizons a bit. Grab this, and a cheap, used, M42 lens, and kick it old school for a while.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What I needed This was exactly what I needed to connect my 10 telescope to my 6D. In the old days I used a film Pentax SLR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works & Very Solid This adaptor worked perfectly to put some old M42 glass on my Canon 5D3. I had originally gone with an autofocus confirming cheapo one from @ which did not work. This one is a very solid hunk of metal. Feels very tight and does what it is supposed to. It does not have an electronic component so there is no focus confirming which may be an issue for some people.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Canon EOS lens adapter I use the adapter to mount a 200mm lens with a Pentax screw mount to my Canon 50D. It is easy to connect and disconnect. It enables me to use a very old but excellent lens that had languished in a camera bag. I cannot use any of the auto features of the camera. I can only use manual, but that is the way I used the lens with my 35mm SLR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the money! This adapter enabled me to mount my 300mm f4 Takumar lens purchased years ago onto my Canon 7d digital SLR camera. The adapter screws onto the threaded base of the lens, then engages and couples with the camera lens mounting receptacle. Who says you can't put a square peg in a round hole! This adapter basically lets you do that.
