The Viltrox EF to E II (Focal Reducer) is is my favorite adapter for Canon Full Frame EF lenses to Sony APSC E Mount cameras such as the A6xxx Series (A6000, A6100, A6300, A6400, A6500m A6600). The adapter eliminates the need to calculate crop factor while increasing the brightness of a lens setting by one-stop. The Viltrox Focal Reducer takes advantage of the excellent autofocus capabilities of the Sony A6xxx cameras and I found it far better than the Sigma MC-11 or the Metabones IV – especially when using long focal length EF lenses such as the Canon 70-200mm f/4L IS and 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II…

I am selling this unit because I have completely switched to Sony equipment…

It is in excellent, like new, condition and comes in a fitted carrying case with Viltrox instructions. The Focal Reducer weighs only 6.21 oz or 176 G.

This adapter condenses the light from a lens designed for 35mm film or "full frame" camera sensors and projects it onto a Sony E-mount camera's APS-C sensor. This allows the APS-C sensor to utilize more of the light gathered by a connected lens, which effectively reduces the crop factor while making available to the sensor an additional one stop of light for each of the lens's f/stop settings.

If a compatible lens includes autofocus, as well as camera-controlled aperture functions, this adapter is intended to allow those features to be used. Also, if an attached lens is capable of generating EXIF

metadata when used with a directly compatible camera, this adapter is designed to allow that information to be saved along with image files generated with a combination of the lens, a compatible Sony E-mount camera, and the adapter.

This adapter is constructed with four lens elements in four groups that are designed to provide optical clarity as well as color fidelity, and the underside of its detachable tripod foot is tapped with a 1/4"-20 accessory thread, enabling direct attachment to tripods or quick release plates that feature 1/4"-20 mounts. For ease of upgrading its firmware, this adapter also includes a micro-USB port.

  • Maximizes apparent angle of view of combined camera and lens eliminates need to calculate crop factor when using APSC camera
  • Provides a one-stop increase for the camera over the lens's aperture range
  • Four lens elements in four groups for optical clarity as well as color fidelity
  • Supports electronic communication between camera and lens to enable autofocus, on-camera aperture control, and Exif metadata generation when possible
  • Integrated toggle switch for a compatible Sony E-mount camera's phase-detection or contrast-detection autofocus setting to be applied with a connected lens
  • Detachable tripod foot with 1/4"-20 accessory thread for direct attachment to tripods or quick release plates that feature 1/4"-20 mounts
I am asking $80 including shipping. The price of this unit at Adorama.com is $139.00 new and $129.00 used…
