    Canon EF to Sony NEX Adapter

    http://conurus.com/sony

    I wonder how this could work? Somehow the NEX will determine the amount of light and change the EF aperture?

    They are the folks who hacked the old Contax N lenses to work with Canon EOS bodies. Their adapter has a programmed chip that acts as a translator between the Contax lens' CPU and the Canon EOS cameras' CPU.

    If it is similar, then NEX bodies will auto focus the EOS lenses and control the aperture as well.

    Awesome!

    Thank you I am going to keep my EF lenses and not buy any NEX lenses. Why duplicate them?

    Absolutely no need!

    I look forward to seeing how the L lenses do as well as the incomparable MP-E 65/2.8 on the NEX'.

    No AF
    "Electronic aperture is directly controlled by the camera body and all exposure modes are available. Image stabilization (if the Canon EF lens supports it) and EXIF are supported, but there is no autofocus"

    But $ 399 .... that's $ 300 more than worth. $ 99.90 would be a good price for this metal ring without AF.

    $ 399 is only for version gold-plated with brilliants.

    Hi, do you have more information about the EF to NEX converter? Have you used it already? Can you share it with us?
