This adapter is exceptionally good at doing what it's designed to do... but not so great at doing what you *hoped* it would do. (Hint - it doesn't wake the EOS-M any faster. Actually, makes it slower)

If you're like me, you have a nice little stable of Canon EF lenses that you can't wait to attach to your EOS-M. The first thing I attachhd was the fat 70-300L white whale. It looked hilarious, but the image quality was stellar. Same with all my other lenses. I particularly like the 24-105L.

So, if you have a few seconds to spare between shots, you love the image quality of your current EF lenses and you don't mind a little extra heft and size... this is a must-have accessory for Canon shooters with the EOS-M. Just don't expect miracles in terms of speed and operation.

The Good:
-Incredible sturdy, well-built. No play when lenses attached. Gives you confidence
-No loss of image quality. You will never know the image was taken with the tiny EOS-M
-All functions work, autofocus and image stabilization
-The tripod mount is removable, but essential if you want to mount this on a tripod

The Bad:
-It really makes the thing chunky. Even with a smaller lens, the form factor gets a little big
-All the weight of the lens and camera will end up on one hand (the one holding the lens) You'll use 1-2 stops in handholdability
-No reliable way to get focus confirmation when focusing manually

The UGLY:
-You think the EOS-M was slow with autofocus? Holy Moses! Most EF lenses, when adapted, work even slower. So bad, you should really prefocus every shot and pray it lock on in time to take your image

Works exactly as it should and very well made. The price seems a bit high for what you get. I'd considered getting a knock off but went with the more expensive Canon, and I'm glad I did, because I haven't had a problem mounting any of my lenses on it.

Best Adapter I've Owned!

By Trenten Kelley

Comments about EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses:

The review is going to be short and simple. I love this adapter! It allows me use all of my EOS mount lenses on my Canon M5 without losing any functions! Haven't noticed any problems. Only feature that doesn't work as well is the constant focusing, it's meant of the Canon M lenses because they're faster at focusing, the other lenses go crazy when the camera keeps telling them to refocus. Hint, turn that feature off!

Get this if you have a Canon mirrorless camera

By EF Paredes

Comments about EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses:

I can't think of any reason not to own this lens adaptor. Even if you own just one EF lens, get this adaptor. It will save you in the long run should you decide to expand your photo gear. This is an excellent, well-made adaptor. It is sturdy. It locks onto your EF lens very securely, and it is a breeze to mount and dismount onto your mirrorless camera. I have not noticed any drastic changes in focal length or image quality when using this. All autofocus and image stabilization functions are preserved. The detachable tripod mount is a nice bonus too. A few of my EF telephoto lenses don't have tripod mounts, so having it on the adaptor saved me the need to buy another accessory. A great buy, which I would purchase again if I had to.

A must-have to use Canon SLR glass on EOS M

By Sheri

Comments about EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses:

I initially purchased a non-Canon lens adapter for my new EOS M5. I didn't seem to be getting the performance I expected from that off-brand adapter and any of my L glass (300mm f2.8 and 300mm f4). The adapter seemed to make the lens motors noisy and lacked the smoothness of focus you expect from L-glass. Enter the genuine Canon lens adapter and the problem was solved. No more noisy hunting of the focus motors and clearly all the lens data and correction is available through the adapter. Lesson learned!!! Spend the extra money and get the genuine article if you have L glass around that you'd like to use on the M body!! Gives me additional choices for my travel M5.

Comments about EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses:

This adapter works as advertised. I have used several full-frame EF Canon lenses with this mount on my Cannon M5 and all have worked flawlessly as if no adapter was installed. I like that the tripod mount is detachable. This product is quite pricey, like all the extras for Canon, Nikon, Sony, etc.

Must-have M5 Accessory!

By PattiCake17

Verified Buyer

Comments about EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses:

Just received this adapter for my new back up M5 mirrorless camera body which enables me to use some of my L lenses. Very pleased with IQ results and the fact that it will significantly help cut weight while traveling by just taking one DSLR body (5D4) w/o battery grip along with 2-3 L lenses, and the M5 body and a couple of its compact EF-M lens.

This adapter seemlessly does the job, but is expensive

By Edward

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses:

There are less expensive adapters to fit Canon EF/EF-S lenses to an M camera, but I tend to think of the extra cost of this original Canon equipment as insurance that the lenses will work seamlessly without any hesitation. And that is exactly what I have found using my Canon EF and Canon EF L glass on my EOS M5. Although the lenses with the adapter add considerable weight and size compared to my native M lenses, there is no operational difference using any of the features of the camera. Things like autofocus, One Shot or Servo, metering, single shot or continuous operate consistently, no different than with native M lenses.
So the adapter works as advertised, but I didn't give it 5 stars. The reason is, despite not minding paying a premium as insurance that it will work, that premium is still too high. Especially since Canon decided to include this adapter as part of their EOS M5 kits in Europe, but not in the U.S. There are no optics in this adapter, just a tube with electrical pass through contacts. I'm sure Canon's margins are quite high on its production and there is room to give its customers a break.

It just works!

Comments about EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses:

I have used this adapter a few times now, and it works beautifully on all my current lenses, and makes the M5 it is connected to, look silly at the same time. It's perfect. Autofocus is accurate, not so fast with the adapter, but that's a given, and it just works!

    I bought this adapter to attach a telephoto lens to my Canon EOS M. It snapped right on and everything fit and worked perfectly. I also like the base on the adapter to support the larger lens (or attach to a tripod).

      Comments about EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses:

      I just purchased my first mirrorless camera, Canon's EOS-M. Being able to record more than 12 minutes of video is very freeing for recording shows and events. However the focus was problematic with the EOS-M camera. This adapter changes all that as I am able to set focus and shoot away! Of course the adapter also allows me to use all of my Canon lenses! Canon should include this adapter with the camera.

        It is very well built and says Canon quality all around.

        I tried the 50mm 1.4 and the 70-300 IS USM and they worked jut great. I obtained quick focus with the 50mm and the adapter just brings new life to the M as I can use all my EF lenses on it.

        Very satisfied with the purchase.

            Comments about EF-M Lens Adapter Kit for Canon EF / EF-S Lenses:

            Bought this since I already had some EF lenses (like the 50mm f/1.8) and recently bought an EOS M. Very good build quality and works even with non Canon lenses (i.e. Sigma). With all the reviews bashing the camera for its slow autofocus, I expected the adapted lenses to perform poorly but they work very well, slower than with the average Canon DSLR but acceptable to me. The non STM lenses make a lot more noise than when mounted on a normal Canon DSLR so be prepared to use manual focusing for video.
            Overall very satisfied with the purchase
