    Thanks Dave! So excited that the canon adapter works, and that my canon lenses still take great pics (at least to me lol) with it.

    A cheap 10 dollar one made by dslrkit I found on amazon.com. Doesnt control aperture, but was only one that said it would handle the ef-s lenses.

    So how do you control it?

    I don't, I set it to f14 in my canon and then took it out and left it at that. Going to try one of the canon adapters that has aperture control next, but most of em either dont say they work with the ef-s lenses or don't say whether they do or don't.

    I know nothing of Canon lenses, but if the ef-s lenses are like the Sony e mount lenses and don't have an aperture lever then what you already have is what you'll get, buying an adapter that has aperture control won't work without an aperture lever on the lens.

    You may be stuck changing aperture on a Canon body like you've already done. On a side note, I think using f/14 as a general aperture is a little bit too small. Most lenses work best (generality) around f/5.6-11. Beyond f/11 difraction starts to be a factor.

    Havent had much a prob with diffraction. Im even considering going to f16. Any diffraction probs that might come up I can solve with lr and ps. Far as aperture selection, I think some of the adapters do their own aperture, not try to use the lens aperture.

    Well, it would seem that you're good to go then. :)

    A great shot. I like how crisp and sharp the tree trunks are.
