L Plate for Metabones adapter, the solution.
May 18, 2012

When using an L plate on the Metabones EF to E (Canon to Sony NEX) adapter there is insufficient clearance for some lenses to be mounted. For me the ZE100 and Canon 70-300L. It is also insufficient room to mount the adapter plus lenses on a monopod. I did not want to use the camera L plate as I don't think the camera mount itself is strong enough. I obviously did not want to test till it broke to find the limits either.

I asked Chris Hejnar, http://www.hejnarphotostore.com/ , iof he could help. I sent a sketch of what I thought would work and after a couple of little "try this, change that" he came up with the perfect L plate for the Metabones.

This little additional height gives plenty of clearance for lenses as desired.

Chris has made a few extras in case anyone else needs one but I'm not sure if he has them on his web site yet. And I get to pay for mine as well.:D in case you are wondering.
