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.

Fits well

By Shawn

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

Bought this for my Lumix G7 and it fits both the camera and a Canon EF lens great. There is no play in either the camera or lens side.

Works, but is a little loose.

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

Could be a bit more precise in fit, but it works. (slight wobble .. can't see that it affects the picture though) I am regretting the decision to forego the Metabones this time ... I really should have. Only use if you KNOW you have full manual control of lens!

Works as advertised.

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

Adapter is pretty simple and feels durable. Tried it on my ef and ef-s lenses on a Panasonic Af100 for video and it is doing the job. Unless your lenses have manual aperture control, the lenses will be wide open with this adapter. There are ways around that though.

Cames without caps.

By Bob

from Yakima WA

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

The product itself is as expected of reasonable quality and build. It's a basic adaptor. Nothing fancy. But there are no caps to keep it clean. I'll have to order these separately.

Works for manual lenses

By PaulK

from Oakand, CA

Verified Buyer

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

Initially I thought that this was locking to only 1 out of 7 different EF/EF-S mount lenses. It turned out that I just had to twist a little harder. Part of breaking-in something new and tight I guess. Works fine with fully manual lenses but basically useless with electronic lenses without an iris ring.

Does what it's supposed to do.

By James G

Verified Buyer

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

I got this adapter to use my old Canon lenses with my new Panasonic G85. Works pretty good. The metal interface on the lens side fits perfectly. On the camera side there is a tiny rotational slop after it clicks into place, but I can't see how that would effect anything.

Of course, there is no communication between lenses and camera - no image stabilization, autofocus or aperture control. But still a great bargain if you don't need your lens to talk to your camera.

Mount EFS lens first, then EF lenses mount properly

By Gregory

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

I didn't expect much from the adapter, but I did expect it to stay on my lenses. So I was shocked when it did not stay on my EF lenses. Just before packing it up to return it, I tried it on one of my EFS lenses and it locked securely. Then I went back to my EF lenses and suddenly they locked on securely as well. Odd, but I'm glad it worked. I did not want to return it or use gaffers tape to keep my fast lenses in place.

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

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

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

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

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

By Devi Prasad

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

from Minneapolis

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

By Dave

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.

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.
