Liked for the haircut.
Hello Sean, I got an adapter, but it does not seem to work on full frame, I bought it in December 2018 and your video is pretty old. It seems to work on my EOS M3 and Old Rebel, on my 6D it looks dark at the bottom. Any help?
How about reverse situation - I need to mount Canon EF to Pentax K. Is it possible?
I have pentax k 1000 mkII camera with 55 mm lens and i want to use this lens on my canon rebel sl2
Please help me to find out cheap and good adaptor
I m from india
Hi, thanks for your video. Very clear and promotes the fun to be had thrift store lens hunting too. I'm selling an ef adapted lens on ebay and wondered if you'd mind me linking your video to my current listing to provide knowledge to my buyers. I have a PK to EF mount adapter. I used it on a t2i but now I wanted to upgrade my kit to high speed af and recoup my money from my excellent Tokina PKa 60-300 lens for this project.
Guess there isn't one for canon full frame then aye
does your company make pentax adapters for nikon bodies or just canon? and also do you lose any f stops with an adapter?
Need help. I have several old lenses I used on my Pentax K1000 years Star Mc auto f=28mm 1:2.8,
Tou/Five Star Mc auto MACRO zoom 75-200mm 1:4.5, Tou/Five Star 1:8 f=500mm, Pentax-M 1:2 50mm, Tiffen 2x telephoto converter 37mm, and Gemini auto 2x tele-converter. I am looking to buy a new Pentax DSLR that I can use these lenses on. I want this for vacations & shooting outdoors. Any recommendations?
Hey! I just bought a Pk-Eos mount to adapt my smc pentax-fa 28-80mm f3.5 5.6 to a Canon 60d. It doesn't work, the camera doesn't recognize the lens.
It was this adaptor couldnt use it at all, got asked for firmware updates
Sean, I remain a little confused. Good video but doesn't address two issues. I have a Cannon Rebel T6. You sell two adapter rings, one with a "chip" in it one without. The info on the Fotodiox web site makes no mention of the T6 camera. It does say Rebel and that both will work on a "Rebel". I keep seeing people having to remove the electronic contacts from the adapter in order to correct some software issue. Why? And will I need to do that if I buy that version just to see if it works?
And you don't address the tab sicking out on the back of the Pentax lenses at all. People are cutting them off and or bending them over. Other than experimenting and taking the chance of ruining a nice camera by the mirror striking the tab, how can one determine if one needs to tamper with the tab at all? It sure would be nice to be able to put the lens back on the Pentax body and continue to use it as intended.
I bought an adapter, the first week was fine but now my camera ask for a lens firmware update eveytime I try to use the adapter, any help with that?
I have a penkax-K SMC 70-210mm
Will it fit to my Nikon d3200 please?
the k mount part that sticks out on the lens interferes with the mirror on my 5d mkii and needs to be cut off
At :30 I saw the entire lens turn when you adjusted the aperture ring . why doess this happen and how does this effect the focus? Is this a flaw in the mount connecting the lens to the camera?
Hi Sean, I am now looking to get the bests Mount Adapter, M42 Lens to Pentax K Cameras and I see that Fotodiox produce one. Recommendations on most forums state the best is to use the genuine Pentax make (as there are some very cheap versions which are not good) . Can you guarantee with hionesty that your product is as good as the genuine Pentax one?
I now have all 3 Pentax S-M-C Takuma 200mm, 85mm and 28mm prime lenses using - of course - Fotodiox lens adaptors and have managed to capture some lovely images with these lenses.
And +dvrapant is quite right - prices continue to rise - so I consider them and investment now. :-)
is that the 43mm fa limited?
what lens is that?
really good - just what I needed to know thanks - love my old Nikkor lens - they are built like tanks and amazing quality
Here after 7yrs
Can I use it to mount Nikon Glass on the BMPCC 6K? It's got an EF Mount but just want to be sure.
for those who are wondering, we do not also adapt the Nikon lenses in version Q, I tried with the Fotodiox adapter ring, it works well.
Very good evening
Thanks a lot
How is the auto focus?
Hi, i want to use my old nikon nikkor 24-105 mm on my canon eos m6. I bought another adapter but wont focus. Please help which fotodiox or adapter would work.
Thanks. You saved me the trouble of making a similar video. I'll be sharing with other astrophotographers. Nikkor lenses are great for astronomy photos. And the best astro-camera adapters take EOS lenses. So folks can use Nikkors or newer EOS lenses thanks to the adapter. (Note about the adapter: Some people panic that the adapter is permanently locked to their lens because they try to remove it counterclockwise, like the common "lefty-loosy, righty-tighty" proverb. Nikkors are "righty-releasy, lefty-locky". End of panic.)
Can't you release that adaptar ? My problem
Does thisnadapter auto focuw
I'm pretty new to all of this, can I ask if I can go Cannon lens to Nikon also with a different lens adapter?
Does it has also infinity? Because the distance insode the 2 brands has a different distance to the lenses.
Great video most useful, simple and to the point :-)
Love this adapter I've had for a few years and use it all the time, for video and IR photography on my Canon 5DII
Hi. I have an urgent question: in a Tamron 18-270 the image stab (a.k.a. VC) will work using a 10 dollar adaptor?
(I have Canon camera and I found a Tamron lens for vert good price.)
I only worried about the image stab. The rest no trouble cause I make videos with manual focus.
But the image stabilizer needs some voltage to get from the Canon's battery . Am I right?
So does the very basic adaptor cover such support?
I've fixed Nikon lens using the same adapter to the Canon body, but now, I'm not able to remove the lens. Please suggest what has to be done.
This is great- thanks for all the info-I really appreciate it
I've it on Nikon 85mm lens but the aperture is zero on camera ?
IST WORKING FOR THE 35MM 1,8 DX
Would this fit to my Tamron 70-300mm lens
Do you have any adapter to mount Canon EF lenses to Nikon with autofocus capability
Many will probably ask why I didn't test a Novoflex. Short answer, I should have. I didn't discover them until after the testing was done on all of these adapters. I hope to try one soon and do a follow-up video.
great analysis! in the future, if wish to take your dimensional data adquisition to another level, I humbly suggest using a micrometer instead of a caliper. It makes it easier to achieve squareness at the time of measuring and its rigid design makes it most reliable. One way or another, great job in sharing your insight on the matter!
try novoflex. its the best.
Honestly I believe quality control issues could lead to not consistent products so deciding which is best based on only 1 sample each is not fair, probably if I buy the same brands I will get different results. In any case I believe not all is lost, all adapters comes with 4 screws on the ring housing the lens, I didn't try but I'm pretty sure those little discrepancy could be fixed by acting with the screws and probably some thread-lock (in case). maybe 3 screws would have been easy to tweak and obtain a perfect plain.
I think tollerances of around 0.1mm are present on the lens ring itself.
Another interesting discussion about adapters will be light filtering in trough the (even if very little) gap between the rings, if you try a long exposure shot with a ND filter you'll find there is ligth sneaking in.
Well shit I own a Gobe M42-MFT adapter lol but I haven’t noticed any loss in sharpness. Guess I need to buy Fotasy from now own for my vintage glass
Love the disclaimers on fuji or FF :p
What lens was the video shot on?
First of all, Dearly thank you for this great job you executed that should be priceless for many who understand and are in need in this very revealing field of photography.
Having said that and the fact that I can't thank you enough for that, please allow me to point out a few flaws in your review, only to be constructive critiques for the sake of a better future and not any God forbidden troll or likewise.
I see you love your Fuji and had a 50mm Nikkor to test but honestly, 50mm is too light a lens and gravity talks big here. Besides the logarithmic importance & prominent effect of the long FL (Focal length) lens to show and magnify the flaws of a badly made adapter. A point you may want to consider on future tests.
1:53 Oh no. I'm not a fan of FF alone, as I do shoot all the time, both with all kind of sensors and like APCs, especially the petite of all M4/3 but the new high rez, high pixel FF sensor do show the flaws in the build quality of adapters, much more significantly or prominently. So here, the choice of Full Frame sensor could make a difference.
That is besides some other problems s.a. Canon 5Ds that have apparently Trump type mirror (Bigger size (Physically-not mentally) than others) so the mirror gets stuck to the back of certain badly made adapters while shooting!. Yes, you may have no problem with the longer flange distance of your mirrorless Fuji but others do have significant problems in this department that you totally missed.
So maybe of note to add this to your future tests and good recommendations for the sake of perfection as I know, that is your sole aim.
8:31 You confuse the viewer at this point. If ever you make a revision ever, make a revision also at this point for better understanding.
4:26 I wish but sorry if I have to disagree on this. As a person who has very many adapters, I have seen some really really badly built ones, even some that due to no quality check, some copies of the same company, misses the infinity focus when another copy not (And they were all promised to focus infinity). This is beside the wiggling ones that you can potentially miss the section of focus due to gravitational pull of lens and worst of all God damn them! One company that had made such a bad lose adapters for Nikon (Bad latch design that doesn't engage any more overtime or even some, right out of the box) that won't lock when attached and my very expensive, always petted Nikon CAT 500mm F5 ( the Nippon Kogaku 500mm F5.0 Reflex Nikkor Mirror Lens), accidentally fell off the camera, that's when I was trying to focus for stars in a dark night and of course, as bad things happen, this had to be in front of 17 steps of the staircase and so did my baby tumbled all the way down I guess you guess how much I hate them! TG lens stood the insult but my heart is broken.
Bottom line. Pay a bit more or go with the unbiassed genuine reviews so you don't be SAD or cheated at the end.
13:39 TOTALLY agree with you on this extremely important point. The main problem with any product coming to form China or the far east (Except high-quality Japan's products and some of the So Korea products) is truly that lack of QC or Quality Control and one sample (UNFORTUNATELY) is not representative of the entire batch of the product!
This would explain the cause of many arguments some of your viewers may come within the comments as their inference may be quite right and opposite to what you expressed here but that could simply be due to receiving a better random copy rather than what most are!
Again thanks for making this very nice, useful review that I found very informative.
(Side note: Please secretly let me know your eBay user name to add it to my black-list of sellers I must avoid 16:58) But appreciate your honesty, A typical good American. So please Everyone VOTE for the better of our great 3rd is almost here. GBA.
I put a canon lens on a canon to Sony adaptor. It is a manual focus adaptor, but I cannot change the focus on my lens when I turn the focus wheel. Why is this?
Thanks god I found you! :D Im also about to buy an X-T3, but im currently a Nikon user. I was about to "upgrade" to Sony, but after I magicially found out this 10 bit, inbody headphone output, I finally found the perfect camera between the Blackmagic PC4K and the Sony Alpha series. However, Im struggling to find an adapter, which wont reduce the image quality of my Nikon mount Sigma ART lenses. So if Im understanding your video, the Fotasy adapter is the one for me, to who adapting sharp lens is important? :D But can I buy any of them in Europe? I cant find them on european market.
Dude. what kinda light do you have setting to your left? Thanks.
Can you test a wide angle vintage lens like 28mm with those adapter, is it all vignetting or only the lens I use, I use 28mm accura diamatic with cheap adapter to sony a7r mark ii.
Thank you for this. Appears to be very sound logic.
(appreciate following up with your adding the perspective that this is only a sample of quantity=1. (which was enough data for the poor performer, but not enough samples/data to confidently claim championship status among the top performers.))
personally, I would have just assumed that this area you measured would have been near perfect. Why did the manufacturer mess up on this dimension, which is so critical ! other than sloppy work, hurrying the machining process, not bother to measure and discard what is off, or have very loose standards for what is acceptable.
What do you mean by "ml" in the weight topic? Isn't it supposed to be "grams"?
Hi Bro Andrew, may be you could test a Sony full frame body could be the newest one the A7C sooner when released or just the A7iii or A9 and test with the only one lens of Fujinon XF 50mm F1.0 lens.
I was sure my guy was going to say he purchased a coordinate measurement machine :')
Next time make longer video. You are time waster.
I just did a review on the Metabones EF to X Mount Speedbooster adapter!
Thank you for the comparison video. You wrote on the weight labels “ml” but I think you meant “mg”, right?
Hello, check out 'focus peaking' on your canon camera, it takes all the worry of focusing away, there's YouTube videos on the subject.
Thank you for your review of Kecay mount adapter. I'll look for one.
Nice vid.,quick questi0n though, will this work on an M42 mount lens?
Got a couple of Pentax lenses myself. They are awesome!
This was a super useful video, thank you! I have a crop sensor DSLR too and just stumbled on a dead cheap 24mm Pentax K mount lens, so I’m glad that you shared some footage where the adapter is working correctly. Great looking footage, I might just have to look for that 28mm lens too!
Fantastic! I recently got given a Canon 60D for helping a friend. I'll be getting hold of an adapter because I've just come into possession of a Pentax f1.2 50mm. If it's as fun to use on my digi camera as it is on my old Pentax I don't think I'll need another 50mm lens ever again.
Nice one Stewart, lovely lenses.
StewartI am a Pentaxian,and loved this vid.I can use legacy Pentax lenses with all of my Pentax cameras,just in manual,of course So thank you for the shout-out for Pentax!
But one question: What do you mean by "b-roll?"
I found my dads Pentax SFX kit with additional lenses and accessories.I really hope I can find an attachment and someone to clean them because they are legit a photographers dream! There’s even a fisheye lens, tone of awesome filters.
Alright Stewart I've just purchased an automatic reverse adapter from Meike for £45 works great with my nifty fifty as it's f:1.8 aperture gives me a really bright viewfinder.
Can use it on Nikon?
I've got an old Olympus 50mm that I want to try and reverse for macro, so very interested in the next vid.
love the grade!
All Pentax lens are first class
