Yongnuo and metabones?

Does anyone know if the Yongnuo lenses for Canon work properly with the metabones and Sony's PDAF? They have a 35mm f2, a 50mm 1.8, an 85mm 1.8 and a 100mm f2.

No idea but I believe that some have reported that for non supported lenses using EF lenses that only focal length (but not lens corrections) are embedded into metadata.

I have zero experience with anything Yongnuo and I agree with the idea that maybe they'd be better served on Canon bodies. Even the higher quality AF adapters like the Sigma MC-11 and Metabones give inferior performance to native lenses even with supported lenses.

It would make sense to buy/use a Canon body to go with them..
Not for me.


Anyone? My experience with canon lenses on my a7ii with the metabones adapter has been very good so far. I also shoot a lot o video and I was thinking of getting a second sony camera with less expensive lenses
