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.

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.

Great addition to my GH4

Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

This piece of kit snapped right in to place. I didn't have any of the issues noted in other reviews. Most of my lenses are fully manual (Rokinon primes) and I'm now satisfied that I can use them on my Panasonic GH4. Nice!

I don't need an intelligent adapter since everything do is manual. This works perfectly and the price point is perfect as well.

Bought to convert Canon EFS to micro four thirds

By Kenneth

Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

I bought this product to convert two Canon EFS lenses to the Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera (18-55mm and 55-250mm). The initial mounting to the BMPCC was relatively seamless (about 5 seconds once teeth were aligned).

The fit is snug. The adapter is strong and mounted to the Canon EFS lenses easily. I recommend this adapter for mounting EFS lenses to the micro 4/3rds like the one on the BMPCC.

Value price, minimal features

By Timothy

Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

Nice and simple, and lets me use my existing macro lens with the Lumix G85. Only caveat is that the twist-lock connections occasionally don't engage the locking mechanism. You can feel it immediately when checking the twist of the lens, so it's never been an actual problem, but definitely something to be aware of.

It works

Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

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.

Does not work with EF lenses

By djwave

Verified Buyer

Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

The adaptor locks to the body, but EF lenses to not lock to the adapter. The lens fits and you could take pictures but you would have to hold your lens on with duct tape.

This is something B&H should actually remove from the store since it simply does not work. They were great about taking it back

Fairly well built adapter - Great price

Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

I got this for using my Canon lenses on my GH4 Camera and it works fine. I do find there is a very slight amount of play on the mounts. Great as a 'cheeper' adapter option, fantastic price.

Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

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.

Faulty Product

Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

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.

      Doesn't Work

      By KL

      from New York

      Comments about Vello Canon EF/EF-S Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Adapter:

      This lens adapter for Canon EF lenses does not fit on an EF lens. The design doesn't allow it to lock onto the lens. It will simply fall off which makes it unusable.

        I use the Vello Canon EF/EF-S mount to use old Canon EF zoom lens on my Olympus Pen micro 4/3 cameras. It serves that purpose well. A caveat, probably already known to most, is that auto-focus lenes will work only in the manual mode.

        If your looking for a simple adapter for your canon EF lens to your M43 camera then this is the easiest solution. If you need iris control then this is obviously not a option.

              I use this with my BMPCC. It works as advertised. It is a "dumb" adapter. There is no iris control with modern lenses. I had this idea that I could adapt Nikon Ai-S lenses to EF and then to MFT. Well, the Fotodiox el cheapo adapter does not play nice with this adapter, so that was a bust. It is well built. It serves a purpose, but the Metabones speedbooster adapter for the camera is far better. It has been demoted to a back up adapter. If you want to use this product make sure to get a variable ND filter for you lenses so you have some control over your images.

                  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.........
