I'm not the "put my face all over the internet and pontificate reviewer" type of guy, but I'll do my best to give you an idea of it's capabilities.

I just made an extensive post in the Sony EA50 sub forum about the MetaBones EF Mark II adapter. It is very similar to the speed booster in firmware. If you are interested in the speed booster you might want to check it out. It is basically the speed booster without the glass.

My thoughts. I'm not so negative on it as Steven is, for me it seems to work well enough. Here is my post on it:

Optical Magic - Palacios Pictures Blog

I should add that it is advertised to work with my camera, and I haven't had it out in the wild yet.

Thank you Philip for the link to your Blog; and very interesting. I think Steven has a faulty adapter.

Phillip & Tony,

I am hoping it is defective too. I have not had a reply from MetaBones yet. I am not trying to be negative. If it turns out to be the date my lenses were made I just want everyone to know that is one of the limitations as I willingly took a "gamble". If I can get that Canon glass into service on my EA50 I will be thrilled. I'm glad it is working out for you Tony and hope it works for everyone else.

Steven

There's some good testing and analysis of the adaptor here-

The tests by Roger at LensRentals were well worth reading.

I'm looking forward to seeing the 4/3 adapter when it is released (due in March).

He's the guy with the time (and gear) to do the tests. Good to know, thanks!
