So was the paper causing issues with the 17 mm or was it because the paper was coming off?
Fred did not mention any issues with this combination.


I'm not sure, I tried to push the paper back in, thinking it peeling off is a problem but it didn't help. I will try to reflock one more time before using the pen.

Yea I was surprised also - i've been thinking that maybe humidity does something to the paper, aside from making it come off adapter.

So there is a new Metabones 4 smart adapter:
http://www.metabones.com/products/details/MB-EF-E-BM4

"
Enhancement on MARK IV vs. MARK III:
The new design of inner housing in MARK IV has a bigger inner hole. Improving the Tilt shift lens preformance.
The inner hole is painted with matt coating. This can further reduce the internal reflection. "

I'm buying that ...

Sounds rather like Nikon with the D610...

Interesting - amazing that they still sell the MkIII version of this adapter for the same price ($399). Looks like those adapters are high in demand due to the amount of people moving from Canon to Sony....

At least they didn't jack up the price on MB4, a 'premium' solution for premium cameras
I really hope I can receive mine before I leave on a photoshoot in 15 days, would be a nice field test, but I doubt it somehow.

I wonder when someone will offer coated EF/E mount adapters without AF capability - in fact, MF is totally fine for me with my Sony camera. Supposedly the price of the current Metabones adapters is only so high due to the AF capability and lens recognition. Such MF EF/E mount adapter should cost less than $50 easily (most of still well made MF adapters cost around $10!).

I would LOVE an adapter that only has contacts for EXIF, Aperture control, and IS!

There are no updates on the Novoflex adapter but the ETA was between March and June.


Seeing these news of the Metabones Mark IV makes me wonder: how far is Novoflex from releasing their adapter, originally scheduled for June? Has anyone heard from them?

Nops, no news I am aware of. But if something is released, it will be hyper expensive - already the Novoflex MF adapters are severely overpriced IMO.

Tilt and shift lenses were never a problem with the Metabones Mark III (even the TS-E 17mm) as there is no mechanical vignetting.
The reflection issue has been resolved by flocking the adapter and I doubt that the new "matte" paint will do a better job with reflections.
The good news is that perhaps the Mark III will go down in price.

Fred - have you tried to do a shift and a tilt in the same direction with a flocked adapter? I was getting a pretty bad vignette with that effect. I am wondering if whatever this paper is, its not handling humidity well ( aside from it coming unglued). I shoot by the beach and various waterways a lot, and eventually I started noticing a vignette at over 10mm shift (I used flocked adapter for a long time before getting TS-17). A 2 degree tilt down, in direction of shift, pretty much killed it for me. I removed the paper from top and bottom only (it came off too easily) after which point I got no vignette in any tilt/shift combo, but of course started getting severe flares (at top and bottom) when using 24-70mm.

Many available. I purchased a King adapter (EOS->E mount). Works very well!

Hi
I'm new here as I have only just purchased an A7R and Metabones III adapter. What does "flocking the adapter" mean?

Thanks
Rob

I do not get vignetting. The flocking paper I tried is very thin and can be found on this link:

That's the same paper I use. We'll see, new adapter will be here in 3 days. At least I can compare them.

Hi all, I have just finished writing a blog on how to fix a Metabones adapter without dismantling the unit. With the purchase of my A7R I received a free adapter as a redemption offer from Sony Australia. I did a lot of comparison testing against several adapters that I had previously used with a Sony Nex7. My tests proved that the Metabones causes flare under certain lighting conditions. For example, long exposures with overcast skies, and around rainforests, waterfalls, with night shots and architectural interiors.

I also use a King adapter (bought it to replace a malfunctioning metabones MKII) and it works well. I have the AF model, and it has internal baffling and works as it should -- the construction is very similar to the metabones one, too. I think I paid ~$160 on eBay, and have been using it with a TS-E 17mm with great results.

Why not just use the pixco then? Where did you find it pre-flocked?

I have both the King and Metabones III adapters (Metabones was half price when purchased w/ A7R but still pricier than the King at full price!). I actually prefer the King. It mounts on the camera without having to get a pipe wrench to lock it in place (or remove it)! Both of them fit snuggly and are solid. I also have another totally manual EOS-NEX adapter, a no-name Chinese unit, that fits loosely on both the camera and lens. I think it cost about $20 and isn't worth even that!!
