MFT Noob here. Looks like this thread is dormant this might help someone along the way.

I've shot mostly Canon for several years but recently caught a bug to try MFT. I'm in the most shallow end of the pool with an old E-m5 -- have a handful of Canon lens that I'm reluctant to part with so after some searching/reading I bought the Viltrox EF-M2 II. So far, it has lived up to it's billing. At least as far as AF. I'm not sure the M5 is reporting the correct exif info (aperture) but I've hung a Sigma 120-300, the Tamron 24-70 and a handful of Canon EF lens on it and all seem to focus accurately. Might be a little hunting and maybe a little spotty in low light. Otherwise all's well with the Viltrox adapter.


Sorry, for the misquotes! Are you able to help me Equifan?



No problem. FWIW, I gave up on the Canon 100-400II after missing many, many shots. But, I shoot birds. In general, the lens was only good for perched shots. As soon as subjects were moving it did not fare well. I can't imaged that the Sigma 120-300 is going to focus any faster.


Thankfully this will be used for video mounted on the back wall of an auditorium for live streaming. I just need one shot to work, and it doesnt need to be perfect each time! Just better than manual focus if i need to change focus asvi wont need a ladder
