The Canon 17-40 is my first....
Congrats, have fun! Oh, and welcome to this forum, you'll find quite some diehard adapted glass users around here (me included).
That looks good to me. What about the AF performance on the A7?
I've got to look for some updated info on using Nikon AF glass on the A7II and A7RII these days.
AF is slow - typically 0.5-1.0 seconds, but is accurate. Single shot AF only.
I purchased the A7 (rather than the mk2) and the 17-40 because I wanted the cheapest lightest combo for landscape and architecture for hiking and city walking. The 17-40 covers the FLs of 3-4 primes, but weighs the same as (for example) a single Samyang/Rokinon. I am very pleased with the IQ of the 17-40; not perfect, but I accepted that I would be compromising with a zoom that only cost 450 euros (mint used copy).
I had this combo with the same adapter before upgrading to the FE 16-35Z. I like the 17-40 a lot. It covers the focal length I live in. For landscape stuff, quick AF isn't as important as accuracy, so you'll be fine. The one thing I would caution about is the internal flares caused by the metallic insides of the Fotodiox adapter. This can get quite ugly. This issue was present in early meta-bones also, but they have added flocking or light absorbing paint in the later versions. So if you can get a more recent meta-bones, I would go for that. Otherwise happy shooting.
