    i just got the EF to R/RF with the ring so i can also adjust on the adapter the lens aperture and so on.
    I guess it is similar to what this article say, it is just a bit more expensive because it has the ring built in. Am I correct?

    Yes. As far as I know, the standard (no control ring) adapter retails for about $100 and the one you're talking about retails for $200. (And I, too, bought the control ring version, since I like more physical controls.)

    But I think this is the one without the control ring.

    yeh i have the adapter ring and I really don't want to get an adapter without it. It was on stock on Amazon a couple weeks ago but I hesitated and missed it unfortunately.
    Still, $200 IS a little steep.
    Ah dude thats sour.
    $200 is a bit for what it is, i think i paid $150 for mine but I mean... $4000 R6, $6000 R5 (after tax in canada) whats another $50-$100 haha. I hope your successful is finding one for yourself soon!

    I ordered some "In Stock" refurbished adaptors, billed to CC and long since paid for. They now show as backordered and its been several weeks. I'm about to endure calling to complain. US credit card rules say you can't charge a card unless you ship in 30 days or obtain a waiver.

    Definitely complain. I went from "backordered" to "processing" on a refurb order, and apparently, if a refurb goes from backordered to processing, there's a glitch in the software that causes the order not to actually be processed. I found this out yesterday (it wasn't an adapter, it was a 24-105 f/4L with an RP as an accessory :ROFLMAO: ).

    I'm half thinking of buying one now for when I eventually get an R camera. Silly I know. I doubt they'll stop making them, and eventually they'll be commonly in stock.

    I did precisely that back in March or so (actually I opted for the control ring, and went refurb), and I am glad I did. But I knew I'd be getting an R5 as soon as possible. If you're thinking it might be one or two years before you do this, then in your shoes, I'd wait.

    It would be interesting to learn how many R users actually depend on the control ring on the lens. (Not just imagine it would be nice to have.)

    I'm not an R user but rather an R5 user (I'm going to guess you don't care which RF camera, but in case you do care, now you know to disregard this or not). I assigned mine to the aperture. Most people I hear talking say they put the ISO on it, but it seems intuitive to me to control the aperture on the lens, after all it's a big diaphragm in the lens itself.

    That being said I don't muck with my aperture much; under most circumstances I shoot wide open. I'd certainly not do so for landscapes or if I ever decided to do a waterfall blur.

    Full transparency, i got mine for the nice to have option, I've converted most of my glass to RF but am still waiting(hoping) on a few RF variants to release (100mm macro rf for example) ive gotten use to the ring and wouldn't want it any other way now.
