Anyone know about this product? Or even this site? I've never head of Metabones, and I'm not sure that I trust a site that doesn't list an address or contact phone number. Clicking on their contact button takes you to an email address.

EDIT...just found this.

The electronic was made by conurus (a one man show whose conurus site has apparently has been around for 5 years). He used metabones to manufacture his product.

This is not fake, scam, or anything. The guy showed a prototype almost an year ago

It just took a long time from that prototype to actual one piece adapter.

For that price I'd really like the ability to AF, otherwise I may as well stick to using the kit lens and my manual lenses via a dumb converter.

Re: Canon EF 'Smart adapter'
 
CDAF AF with Canon DSLR lenses would be pretty useless anyway -- much worse than manual focus.

You need SLT type adapter (like Sony's LAEA2) with PDAF AF if you want usable AF on DSLR lenses.

Re: Canon EF 'Smart adapter'
 
I wouldn't find it useless at all.

I also bought Canon EOS adapter.
I tested the adapter on my following lenses.
Canon EF 85/1.8 and 50/1.4,
EF 70-300/4,5-5, 6 DO IS USM
Sigma AF 24-70/2, 8 EX DG HSM
All lenses worked fine with the adapter.
Unfortunately it did not work with Canon EOS 28/1.8
METABONE bought the same objective and is investigating the error.
Their sales and support is excellent, as is their delivery works well.
I will recomend the company.

How much is the adapter? I've not been able to see that info.

Did the adapter power the IS and did the IS work well?

By the way, I think the price is $399, which is just about right.

Re: Canon EF 'Smart adapter'
 
I saw there were some issues with it working with the 5N and 7N NEX camera, but no issues with the NEX-FS100, so color me impressed. I am curious if OIS works though.

For $400 that's a good deal especially if OIS is functioning.
