No. The six SLR mounts that you can easily adapt to Canon EOS with simple ring adapters are Leica-R, Nikon F, Contax/Yashica, Pentax K, M42, and Olympus OM. But Minolta AF lenses work just fine on Sony Alpha (A-mount) dSLRs and dSLTs without any adapters. And you can, of course, adapt these to mount on the Sony E-mount (NEX). But not for Canon EOS. When ...

Depends on the camera, adapter, and lens, but in my experience, if you are using a good simple ring adapter (no optical element) that holds the lens the correct distance away from the sensor, no. There is no image quality hit. Canon 5DMkII + adapated Contax/Yashica Zeiss Planar T* 100/2. Panasonic DMC-G3 (mft camera) + OM-mount Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.2 ...

Fotodiox makes a variety of lens mount adapter rings, they have a Pentax K-> Canon EOS one, and I believe it's sold by B&H and Adorama. And there's always eBay. However, you will want to do some research and find out the effects of adapting a lens like this. You're most likely going to lose the ability to do wide-open metering, shooting in any modes ...

If an adapter existed, on EF/EF-S, the lens would sit farther in front of the camera body than it's designed to, and this would be like using macro extension tubes: you'd lose the ability to focus to infinity with the lens, and it would only be good for photographing close subjects. Which is why such an adapter doesn't exist.

When adapting non-Sony lenses to an A7, the electronic protocol for body/lens communication has to be translated as well. Between Sony and Canon/Nikon/etc. the commands to focus the lens are very likely to be incompatible, or are so radically different in how they're represented that the adapter has an issue translating them between the camera body to the ...

You cannot mount an EF-M Lens on a standard DSLR or at least it won't work the way you want it to. The EF-M lenses are designed to sit closer to the sensor than on a DLSR. There is no way to get the EF-M lens closer to a DSLR sensor because the mirror is in the way. You can however, put a DSLR lens on the EOS-M camera with what is essentially a spacer to ...

With phase detect autofocus, it is possible for the camera to know more about how far out of focus an image is, so it can make a better guess of how far it has to move. If it knows how to get all the lens details, then it can quickly give instructions to move close to the target point. If it doesn't, then it has to more iteratively move the focus in to ...

I Googled online for an answer and also asked some people at the local camera store if they had any idea. I came to know that Canon has two 2x FD extenders FD 2X-A and FD 2X-B. Apparently FD 2X-A are for lenses 300mm or higher and FD 2X-B are for lenses below 300mm. So, I took a risk and bought a FD 2X-A extender from eBay and I was able to attach the ...

You will crop away the outer edge of the image and this will cause you to lose the highly distorted edges of the photo. this is particularly obvious when you are dealing with a very very wide angle where normally a circular image would be seen but due to the crop you see a square image. This review of the Canon 8-15mm fisheye contains a picture how the ...

think yes but you will have several disadvantage that are mainly: very low light will reach the sensor (2x extender already "remove" several LUX) only manula focus and settings (speed) aperture could be unavailable if there is no settings on the lens itself (normaly there is one on old lens) no special coating on last lens of the group, so some ghost ...
