    ...
    I think you are wrong when it comes to the Metabones smart adapter costing 400$ : it allows electronic communication with the body and as such you can change aperture directly from the body, as if you had a native lens. It stores EXIF information and also allows OIS. Here is a link to the B&H description of the Metabones smart adapter :
    Metabones Canon EF Lens to Micro Four Thirds MB_EF-M43-BM1 B&H

    Also, some cheap adapters allow the control of aperture, but not with the proper lens diaphragm : they add a mechanical iris inside of the adapter, while the EF lens is still fixed to the max aperture. This results in a poorer performance for the lens (vignetting etc.).

    Now of course if your cheap adapter is able to activate the aperture of the lens using the electronic controls of the body, that is a great adapter. Could you check that ?

    What is sure is that you are producing great closeups.

    Edit : looking at the picture of your adapter, I'm sure it has a mechanical iris implemented inside of the adapter. That is the reason why there is a diaphragm ring implemented on the adapter. And this explains the cost difference with Metabones. (as for the Novoflex : you pay for the German reputation of high quality engineering).

    WRONG :-) !

    Did you READ?

    haha, Metabones without aperture > €400
    Novoflex without aperture > €200



    Metabones Adapter WITHOUT aperture = $478 - "does NOT transfer from lens to camera!"
    Metabones Adapter WITH transfer = $600 ... look links ...

    Adapter WITH aperture - $45 ...

    Metabones's and Novoflex's Adapters are silly, overpriced dummy adapters - you get same quality from China for $20!

    Well on eBay you can find anything. Those Metabones are in short supply, so some try to benefit from it. B&H is a reputed camera shop in NY and they aren't a cheap shop. So I'd consider their prices as a good indication of what costs things. Of course if you are in the EU, you have to add the VAT and the shipping to B&H prices.
    Still the Chinese are cheaper, of course, but yours doesn't appear to communicate with the body.

    I do NOT need communication camera/lens - macro is (for me) a MANUELL action :-) - better than automatic!

    And I do not pay hundred of dollars for my macro fun :-))))
    My rule: don't buy Metabones - they are overpriced! :-(

    FWIW, Metabones is also a "Chinese" adapter.

    (as for the Novoflex : you pay for the German reputation of high quality engineering).
    LOL!

    Why is everyone concerned about the quality of these adapters while the mounts on the cameras are really pathetic?

    I know the Metabones are made in China, i was just using the same terms as the original poster.

    As for the Novoflex adapters, I wrote purposedly that one was paying for the "reputation" of German HQ engineering, instead of simply for German HQ engineering. I know from experience : my first MFT adapter back in 2009 bought through a brick and mortar camera shop was an LM to MFT Novoflex and it didn't allow me to focus the 90mm F2 to infinite. Truth being told, neither does the one I have for the A7r, so there may be something with that lens.

    The Olympus mounts of my E-M5 are perfect. But the one of the A7r is loose.

    I often ordered from China - all nice dealers, sending fast, all okay.
    But if you look ebay.com you also can find the SAME(!) thing for $30 or $299 :-(

    I avoid Metabones .. adapters up to $899 (!) are not for me, perhaps for
    Rockefeller or Beckham (he bought a NEX7=Lunar with wooden Hasselblad grip for 7x price ..)


    Price $ 6.995 --- now minus $ 5500 = $ 1.495 (haha)

    Re: Lumix GH4

    For bottom-near macros GX7 and GX8 are good cameras - with swifeling viewfinder - especially when bright sunshine.

    My GH4 also is excellent, but it has a fixed viewfinder. Often I use my SEAGULL angle viewfinder for modest $50, usable with nearly each camera (5 adapters - Canon, Pentax, Nikon, Leica ...)

    Turnable 360 with click each 30, magnifying 1x or 2.5x
