Canon EF on Sony eMount Metabones

Just found this info:

Canadian lens interface experts Conurus and Sino-Japanese adapter maker Metabones have created an electronic 'Smart adapter' for using Canon EF lenses on the Sony NEX's E-mount.

Vancouver, Canada, January 18, 2012 - Metabones forms a strategic partnership with Conurus of Vancouver, Canada to jointly develop, manufacture and market a new Smart Adapter(TM) series of products featuring electronic interfacing with the lens.

The partnership is shipping its first fruition of collaboration today, a Smart Adapter that integrates a Canon EF mount lens to a Sony NEX camera body. 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. The adapter also features a 'Wide Open' button that opens the aperture up for fine focusing, with the lens otherwise stopped-down to the chosen aperture, giving accurate depth-of-field in live view

US$399.

Re: Canon EF on Sony eMount Metabones

Sold out already. No actual reviews yet that I can find, but obviously those with lots of EOS glass are going to be very interested.

I've been selling off my EOS glass for fully manual pieces, like Samyang, for the if and when I ever upgrade to an actual video camera (and the C300 is way too rich for my blood).

Thinking of selling my T2i to help pay for a VG20....
