EOS M EF to M Mount Adapter with 70-200 f/4L IS Sample Images

(1/2) > >>

H and B Digital:
JUST SHIPPED and in stock!!!  I just took the Canon EOS M out with an EF 70-200 f/4L IS attached via the EF-EOS M Mount Adapter.  WOW.  This opens up a whole new set of possibilities . . .

First, the setup:



Results?





Does it solve the focusing issues of the EOS M?  NOPE.



But is it ridiculously cool to walk around with a big lens and a tiny camera?  ABSOLUTELY.  Image quality is darn good too.

Happy shooting,

I don't understand, why people putting a "L" lens on mirrorless body :-\ It just looks so stupid.

Dear Mr. Canon,
If you ever decide on FF mirrorless, please make sure you include some decent pancake lenses.

If your mirrorless body is your second (or third, or fourth, or fifth, or sixth...) body, being able to attach any EF lens is a nice feature to have.  For instance, if you travel with a DLSR and a mirrorless body, you have your compact and backup bodies provided by the EOS-M.  (To establish whether that kind of setup is ideal is left as an exercise for the reader.)

For Canon, the EF mount adapter is a compromise to make the system look more flexible through the period when there are very few native lenses.

FWIW: I'm still not convinced of being to properly hand-hold a body which has no EVF (or eye-level viewfinder of any kind) with such a big lens attached.

I would go for 22/2 pancake and 100/2 for EOS-M, maybe with the next tiny body ;)

IF I travel with my DSLR and EF lenses...I'm just don't I see the benefits of mirrorless with adapter etc. and if you are wedding shooter, I don't think mirrorless is a good choice as backup.

Don't forget the fundamental or primary reason of mirrorless: compact & pocketable & travel friendly.
