    I've been shooting with Canon gear since the 70's and built up a small collection of L series lenses with the odd EFS lens over the years.

    I've looked at the Metabones Speed Booster at a local camera store but there seems to be a design flaw - unable to mount my Canon lens onto it without using a fair amount of force. Not promising when the Metabones costs around $750CDN.

    Reviews have been less than stellar with compatibility issues and very slow focus.

    What brand of lens adapters are you using to convert your Canon EF/EFS lens to E-mount for use on the Sony A6000? Opinions?

    I'm hoping to leverage the autofocus and stabilization of my Canon L-series lenses.

    Thoughts??

    I've heard of defective metabones not fitting correctly but I'm not 100% on this. Auto focus will be very slow with this type of adapter on any e mount camera besides the just announced a7rmkII. If you don't mind manual focus the metrabones does a good job at controlling aperture and transmitting exif data etc. There are some other cheaper brands of adapter that work simillarlly to the metabones but I don't know much about them. Here is one such alternative: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Viltrox-...01?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item3cfb6b22a9
