Apologies for reviving an older thread.

Has anyone tried the 14mm sigma 1.8 with the mc-11? More for the weight of the lens on the mount than the af performance. I'd be keen to get this with the new Sony a7r 3 but don't want to be putting strain on the camera itself. It doesn't look like the adapter has a foot mount??


I have used this combo on the A9 & A7RIII and it seems structurally sound. The MC-11 seems to be built pretty well. Functionally, the adapter & lens combo seems to work perfectly and the lens is usable for astrophotography wide open if you zoom in on a star near the edge and focus just a hair short of infinity to minimize coma.

Has anyone used the MC-11 or Metabones IV/V or TechArt with the Canon 17-40? Wondering if I can get away with using that lens rather than buying the Sony 16-35 equivalent.

I had bought (and returned) the Metabones V when it did not handle my Canon EF 70-200/4 IS or 24-105 well. Ended up getting the Sony 24-105 and 100-400 instead.

I'm not crazy about Sony's options for replacing my beloved Canon EF 35/2 IS and it did well with Metabones V so now rethinking using an adapter (again) for the 35 and 17-40...

Hi,
Did you get enough experience with the Canon 24-105 on the Sony to give your impressions on image quality with the Sony 24-105? I have the Canon which works OK on my a7rii / MC-11 with AF-C but it is a little weak at 24mm. Thanks.

Yes, the Canon 24-105 vignetted really badly with the adapter which was my concern with adapting the 17-40.

The Sony is a marked improvement

I have the 17-40 and have used it on the MC-11. The combo seems to function quite well, though I've done little more than test the AF with several shots.

I also have the MB V, and (IIRC) it seemed to work well on that adapter too.

Should add to this thread that the combination of the MC-11 and Canon MP-E doesn't work with the A7rIII. It worked fine wiht the r2.


Oh! That's worth pointing out yes.

I just tested the MP-E 65mm with the Metabones IV and can confirm it works with the A7r III.

And, thanks to the extraordinary generosity of a forumer who passed on to me his no longer used MB iii, I can confirm the metabones iii still works too.
