FotodioX PL-EOS-PRO Overview

  • 1Description

The Fotodiox Pro Lens Mount Adapter Arri PL to Canon EF allows you to use select Arri PL mounted lenses to fit on a camera body with a Canon EF mount, allowing you to use your existing PL mount lenses with newer cameras that feature the Canon EF mount. This is a lens mount adapter designed to attach to the lens itself, it is not meant to permanently adapt the mount of the camera. The adapter mounts to the lens and is removable, so you can use one adapter on many different PL mounted lenses.

This adapter is designed to prevent you from mounting it onto a lens that extends greater then 14mm from the rear of the mount. This is to prevent the adapted lens from causing damage to the camera and the lens itself. However, the adapter may fit on some lenses that extend greater than 14mm, so before using any lens with this adapter on a camera with a Canon EF mount, confirm that the lens has proper clearance throughout the focus range. The adapter has been tested to work on a Canon camera with EF mount with the following lenses. Please note although other lenses may work with this adapter, only the lenses below have been tested for proper operation.

Canon 20-35mm T4
Ruby 14-24mm T2.8
Angenieux Optimo 15-40 mm T 2.6
Angenieux Optimo 17-80 mm T 2.2

The adapter maintains the correct flange focal distance, and this means that you don't have to worry about the your lenses focus shifting due to the adapter. Infinity is maintained. Featuring Brass construction with a stainless steel finish, this adapter is a strong, durable unit. A built-in tripod support foot features a 1/4"-20 threaded mounting hole so you can attach a tripod or monopod to the adapter, limiting the amount of stress you put on the camera's mount. There is no electronic control of the lens through the adapter, so you need to use a lens that has manual focus and iris capabilities. However, the adapter allows TTL (Through-the-lens) metering, and when using a lens with the adapter, the camera body should be set to either manual exposure or aperture priority mode.

Maintains correct flange depth between lens and image plane.
Infinity remains unchanged, so the lens does not need to be re-collimated or shimmed.
Brass construction protects lens mount, stainless steel finish makes the adapter corrosion and wear resistant.
Some PL mount lenses can damage the camera or the lens when mounted to a camera with an EF mount using this adapter. This is unavoidable if the adapter is to maintain the correct flange focal distance, and you should confirm and test that any lens used with this adapter maintains the necessary clearance throughout the focus range.

    FotodioX PL-EOS-PRO Reviews

    Pro Lens Mount Adapter Arri PL to Canon EF is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't work with PL mount CP2s I bought this with the idea to mount PL CP2s on to my EF Blackmagic 4k. The mount fits on to the camera just fine, and the flange depth is right for the short base PL mount lenses, but the shape of the Fotodiox is totally wrong for all the short base PL lenses I tried, including the CP2 kit. The fit inside the Fotodiox caters for a tapered lens base, while the short base CP2s are straight. Think of a square peg, round hole kind of effect. Not fit for purpose, so I returned.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works on angenieux anamorphic zooms Works on all angenieux zoom lenses in fact. I'm really pleased with it. Needed to take away the support from it to make it fit with the ursa mini. But with zoom lenses like the angenieux there is always rod support that holds the lenses.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from For Select Lens's First Im using a converted Nikor 300 and 400mm lens to PL mount so I knew I was taking a risk with this adapter. Didn't fit my lens so I had to return. Also noticed in the process that the tripod mount gets in the way if your using a Zacuto Eyepiece. It is removable though.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yeah... not so much... The lens support base doesnt allow you to fully rotate the adapter to lock it in place on certain cameras (notably, Panasonic EVA). After removing the support it was able to lock on to camera, but not a single PL lens we tried actually fit the mount. Not sure what PL lenses they are claiming, but certainly did not fit Zeiss CP3, Sigma primes or Cooke. Save your $$.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does Not Work Tried with Leica Summicron-C and Cooke miniS4i. Do not purchase this as the base mount of modern PL lenses is not compatible with the opening on the adapter.

    Date published: 2018-03-03
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Limited but good PL to EOS solution The adapter works as advertised, and as advertised, it is rather limited as to which lenses it is compatible with. I can add the Canon 30-105 Cine Zoom to the growing list, but the adapter did not work with my Xeen 24mm or Duclos 11-16mm Tokina. Those two lenses have extended rear housings that this adapter does not accommodate. However, the Canon Cine Zoom fit well and held focus while testing it on a Panasonic AU-EVA1 EF mount. The adapter should allow me to use my Cine Zzoom on any EF mount in the future. The adapter has a solid build to it. I used it unsupported but would support the Cine Zoom long term with a lens bridge. As with my other Fotodiox adatper I had to remove the adapter support to clear the camera body, but that is an easy task removing two screws. I recommend this adapter so long as you have a lens with shallow rear housing.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very handy. This is a great tool to have in your kit if you want to put PL mount lenses on your Canon EF mount body. Granted it is limited to certain PL mount lenses that have shallower rear element protrusions. One thing I love about this adapter is the 1/4 20 threaded support. Many EF mounts aren't strong enough to handle the weight of PL mount cine lenses. The ability of this adapter to support the lens is great.

    I am using a Sony A7S with Metabones E-mount to Canon EF adaptor. I want an EF mount TO PL mount so I can use my Fuji Cabrio 19-90 on the A7S. So I'd have TWO separate adapters to get from Sony E-mount to Canon EF to PL-mount. Will this adapter accomplish that? I think I need both adapters attached in order to clear the mirror.
    Asked by: Brian D.
    This combination is unknown so you would be on your own as far as testing it. I would say from my years of movie camera assisting, I would not feel confident with such a set up if offered. I would be concerned with maintaining the proper depth and not feel confident it would work all day, every day. I would suggest instead that for using the the Fujinon Cabrio, use a proper PL to E-mount adapter. Keep in mind that when using the Fujinon ZK19-90mm T2.9 Cabrio Premier Lens (PL Mount) on your Sony a7S, the camera must be in crop mode since the lens is for Super35 and will not cover the a7S full frame.

    That lens is not on the list of compatible lenses, more than likely it will not work. There is no alternative we are aware of either.
