Hope everything will go well for you John
I tried the adapter with Canon L lenses...it feels
That is the exact feeling that I had/have with it. LOL. Although, I pretty much expected to be underwhelmed with the feel ergonomically. Was hoping that the IQ would compensate for that initial feeling. It has not.
Thanks for the well wishing, I certainly hope it works out also as I hate having to return stuff (in this case, from multiple vendors).
If the plan works and you decide to keep it, I highly recommend the Sony grip. It does help with larger L lenses.
If you REALLY-REALLY like a7r, then, their A-mount to e-mount adapter works BEST with their a-mount lenses - AF is very good. Just more $$$ to spend
I spent quite a bit of $$$ renting most of A-mount prime and zoom lenses, to test with my a7r series. Their A-mount primes are REALLY good. 135mm A-mount + adapter work extremely well with a7r for portrait works. Hint: DETAILS
