Well, FE-mount diameter is still larger than Nikon F-mount by 2mm and about same than OM-mount. Latter mounts have also much longer flange distance.I think that retrofocal design of 24mm TS-E II would might help with this issue. Lens exit pupil is not very close to lens mount due to the shift mechanism.Very interesting to see how it turns out and if a "plain" adapter without contacts would be better for this.
Just test it today with A7R and 17tse with metabones adapter mkIII.rest assured,there is NO corner cut with 17tse fully shifted vertically or horizontally Can't insert the SD card but i captured some image from the screen for you
looks like a handy system, be interested to see how the lenses fare with smaller pixels than available canon offerings.
Yewww! I can't wait for my A7R and 24mm TS-E II to arrive Thanks for posting the images keng3d. CheersChris
I would urge a cautious enthusiasm.I believe that we are basing our hopes on only two very cursory tests performed by people with very limited access to the cameras. In fact, the only two reports we have so far appear to be contradictory on the point of vignetting with the 17TS-E, in't that correct?
We wondered if there would shield the image created by the adapter or the bayonet and how the sensor would react to the image at an oblique would fall on the sensor. The results of the tests are convincing. The Alpha 7R has no problem with the Canon 24mm and 17mm TSE TSE. The image remains sharp right into the corners and vignetting is the same as the EOS 5D a little at full adjustment.
Ok Eduardo, ok...Perhaps now there's a bit more reason for hope.Have you seen this Dutch website's tests? Here's a relevant excerpt:I remain cautiously (more) hopeful. ;-)
Has anyone tested the Sigma 12-24 with the version III adapter and the a7r? This is my workhorse lens and without it a a7r would be useless.
Yes, works fine in Manual Focus but no auto focus.
There is also this new option http://www.rjcamera.com/ocart/index.php?route=product/product&path=20_63&product_id=81Note sure how is compares to metabones though.
