    hi all,

    i just sold my SEL 10 18mm and want to use my Canon EF-S 10 22mm on my lovely NEX6
    I'm wondering anyone using Canon EF lens on NEX body and what adapter do you use.

    I have metabones speed booster adapter, which is not usable with EF-S lenses but they have a regular ef af adapter also. Only problem is it doesn't focus with every lens and also af is slow. It works with manual focus and you can change aperture electronically. There other cheaper Chinese versions also (Techart, RJ, Viltrox).

    Here is metabones website showing which lenses work with af:

    Also a comparison of metabones to Techart adapter at, they used 10-22 w/ metabones adapter:

    There are EOS-NEX adapters with built in helicoids for aperture settings. They don't correspond to the apertures of the lens and I haven't tried them as it seems a rarher clumsy solution.
