Using Lens Adapters with the Sony A7r and Live Focus Testing!

Sony A7r w/ Metabones III, Canon EF 135mm f/2 L Lens @ f/2, 1/125sec, ISO 6400, Raw

In this video I will go over using lens adapters on the Sony Alpha A7r. I will show you how they work and what kind of focus speeds you can expect from the electronic Metabones III lens adapter and a few Canon EF L Lenses. I will then show you how to use fully manual lenses by using the focus peaking feature and magnify zoom function. Overall a pretty quick video that is to the point.

Curious if it’s worth picking up a Sony A7 or A7r camera body to use your Canon EF lenses on?? Check out this video and see for yourself what you can get. Also be sure to check out my Sony A7r Review (Click Here) where I took tons of sample photos with the killer 17-40mm f/4 L Lens and much more!

Closing Remarks

I hope you all got something out of this video tutorial on using lens adapters with the Sony Alpha A7r. I also hope the live focus testing will put your mind at ease one way or another if this is something you might want to try and play with. No harm in not using lens adapters, but the possibilities are very wide and can be a lot of fun. Especially if you have expensive glass laying around from previous outdated camera systems.
