    I guess this makes it prone to more kinds of incompatibilities than 3rd party lenses.

    Very interesting timing though…

    What exactly the adapter would allow to do with the Canon lenses and what is the price?
    So far we have: EOS-to-MFT adapter by RedrockMicro for about $545 providing the ability to adjust the aperture of the lens http://store.redrockmicro.com/livelensmft
    and long before announced Birger adapter with external control of the aperture and the follow- focus http://www.birger.com.

    pointless…

    is that adapter really going to have exposed wires?

      pointless comment…

      are you really not using your brain?

      why not? my car have also exposed wires when i look under dashboard or hood and it was over 100k. Even worse man, my house have some too.
      Even worse, my nikon have some flapping mirror and (for god sake wtf!) some kind of big ass chip exposed.

      but yea, i know, i know. Apple would put a white plastic over it.

        Looks pretty half baked. Sort of like the terminator when he was dying.

  • Ren Kockwell

    Well, guess I’ll be getting the OM-D now.

    Utter Shite!

    It’s unfinished.

    Half baked.

    It’s a piece of junk! (Moriarty from Kelly’s Heroes)

    All kinds of things for light to bounce off of and possibly cause flare, or other things. Or break. I don’t want exposed wires and electronics in the optical path of my lens.

    Will this also have play in the mounts? Kipon’s stuff is pretty crappy.

    I’m lucky. I have a Metabones NEX to EOS lens adapter, which is relatively decent. Recently, I did a shoot with about a dozen FS100 cameras. We had a whole bunch of Novoflex and MTF Nikon to Sony E mount adapters and four Metabones adapters. They all worked very well. It’s nice to be able to call out a stop and have your operators know where they are.

    Remember we are now in the age where software bugs are touted as “Features”. This is kind of the same thing.

    Did I mention that this is a POS?

    Doesn’t anyone take pride in their work anymore?

      People seem to have a lot of issues realizing what a product looks like when it’s being made. It’s ANNOUNCED. This is not the FINAL product, it’s at the testing stage. What’s next, going to complain about a handwritten sticker saying B on it?
      Use your damn mind for once before posting.

  • B

    yes, the wires certainly will remain exposed in the final models as will the white sticker with the “B” on the m4/3 adapter… boy oh boy, some funny guys here. :)

      What do you expect… they’re FourThirds users :D

    EOS-M was already dead but now…

    I quote the first comment, “Very interesting timing” xP

  • an onymous

    Would the Canon IS work with NEX??

    Looks like someone took a trip to RadioShack…
