Canon EF lenses on Sony NEX7
May 29, 2012

I have a Canon 5D MK11 with several very nice EF lenses and would like to use them on the Sony NEX7 that I just purchased. I need some clarification on adaptors. I know that Metabones makes an EF adaptor and am curious to get some thoughts from those of you who have used such an adaptor.
Will my EF lenses have to be used in manual focus or will they autofocus?
Will my EF lenses work in all operating modes on the NEX7 or just some?
What are the limitations on the NEX7 by using an adaptor with other lenses?

I also read some about the Sigma 30 mm lens on the NEX7. Are there any limitations on this lens such as I am asking about? I believe it has an E mount so no adaptor would be necessary.

Thanks for your clarification.
