a7R + LA-EA4 or Metabones III
4 months ago

Hi.

I recently purchased an a7R; it comes with a mail in adapter coupon, but I'm not sure which adapter is the smarter buy.

I have 5 Canon lenses so the Metabones seems the obvious choice, but I've read that focus is very slow and it's better to just use focus peaking. With LA-EA4 the a7R essentially gains phase detection, which should compensate for the slow CDAF.

So which would you go with? There are a couple of A-Mount lenses that look very interesting.

I know this whole adapter thing defeats the purpose of small FF, but I bought it for it's DR and res, not the size.

Sony Alpha 7R
