It is possible to mount Canon EF-S lenses on the MC-11?

Secondly, does the AF work for the combination of A7+MC-11+Tamron 28-75/f2.8 (Canon FF mount)?

Using the MC-11 with my Tamron 28-75mm/f2.8 on the A6000, I find it hunts before achieving focus. Test was made in the shade on a partly cloudy day.

Test #1 parameter: Shade. 30mm, Av setting, center focus. Lens motor goes back and forth twice before achieving focus.
Test #2 parameter: Shade. 60mm, same setting as above. Same result as test #1 but slightly slower.
Test #3 parameter: 60mm, no shade, but diffused (stronger) light: Same result as #2.
All photos shown are full frame, uncropped (except for last one) and resized.

Firmware installed was 1.04. Results may vary depending on camera model. Still unanswered at this board: does PDAF kick in with the A6000+ MC-11?

No the Mc-11 cannot mount EF-S lenses. However, it can mount APSC format DC Art lenses from Sigma.

Not sure what you mean by your statement. I have a EF-S mount Tokina and it works with the MC-11, although the combo AF also hunts. By "mount" do you mean ability to fit or ability to AF without hunting?

By the way, the Tamron 28-75mm/f2.8 is a full frame lens as stated in the previous post, and I have one too.

A true EF-S lens is only made by Canon as they do not license third parties to use that apparently.

There's a discussion about it in this link: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4008086

Agree about the terminology re EF-S. However, there are lenses that are "EF-S compatible" that fit those Canon cameras.

Canon's version of EF-S has a deeper lens mount area that won't fit into the MC-11 or their FF cameras. Third party brands didn't include this, and you can mount them freely on any adapter or camera.

Just picked up an MC-11. Already have the Metabones IV, and so far, the Sigma seems to work just as well on my Canon 100mm F/2, Sigma 8-16mm (EF-S), and Sigma 150-600mm C. I'll be able to do some in depth testing next week.

Wow...Sweet^^Love that mushy Sigma bokeh...

I confess, I didn't go through every page in this thread...but...Is there a concise and current list of lenses that are compatible with the MC-11?

How are the Canon 1.2's?.... I have to say, I kinda miss my 50L

Has anyone tried the MC-11 with a Tokina 11-16?

My 50L works fine with the MC-11. I've used in low light, where is does struggle to obtain AF, but so does the 50L on my 5DsR. I'm talking REALLY low light for rock performance in a house lit by Xmas lights!

I'm cautiously satisfied with central point AF on AF-S setting, not follow focus or other automation.

Nice...I typically use my 50mm for a walkaround in single shot...So, no biggie with low light and tracking and such. I already have my 50L...Just waiting for the MC-11 to come off backorder...I'll be able to test it head to head vs the 50/1.4ZA...
