The EMF chip, when correctly positioned and glued to an adapter ring will perform autofocus confirmation and communicate EXIF lens information (focal length, max. aperture, and even the aperture setting used--if you follow the correct steps while shooting) on a digital Canon EOS body (I've used them on an XT, 50D, and 5DMkII). The adapter ring and the ...

Forget about autofocus; even if you find the most expensive adapter that allows autofocus, it would not be very good. The beauty of Sony E bodies is the full-time LiveView AND the really nicely implemented focus ...

Not all the Samyang lenses for mft are identical to their dSLR counterparts. Samyang does make two lenses that were specifically designed for mirrorless mounts and do not work on dSLRs, and ...
