  • My opinion, if you don't need it, skip it, at least until reports begin to come in on what undocumented changes were made. My first update of a7r failed and bricked the camera. Since it was still ...
  • Not me, they lost me as a customer. I would say however that while it may still have some reflectivity, it's really not bad. I have used canon ts-e 17, canon 24-70 mk2, and Zeiss 21, and all three ...
  • After the paper feel off mb3, I never bothered flocking mb4. While it didn't completely cut reflections, it was OK for my needs (and I really was afraid for the sensor). I may flock commlite ...
  • Yes, Edmund's ... If I remember correctly, about 3-4 months. By the time it fell off, metabones 4 became available, so I didn't try reflocking.
  • Internal flare is lens and composition specific. I shoot cityscapes at night, and lamp posts just outside the frame flare up. It could be avoided with careful composition. It also affects ...
  • South Florida ... Humidity is only a theory why the paper falls off after a few months. But seeing how humid environment affects / bloats paper, that's my guess. Luckily I saw that paper starting ...
  • My old speed booster was a work of art when compared to mb4. I think I may need to dust it off again to use on nex-7 ...
  • Everyone probably has a different experience and need. Here is mine: I used metabones 3 (mb3), metabones 4 (mb4), and Commlite. Mb3 was well built, truly an excellent adapter, but I use mine with ...
  • We'll see ... if it doesn't work, I'll use the rail. I use LCD instead of EVF because I keep camera fairly low to the ground, so pulling out the LCD and using it from the top is the only practical ...
  • Have you ever used tilt/shift lenses? Especially in tilt mode? Try it without touching the camera ... and yes there is droop if you start pressing buttons ... You can't set exposure / focus / etc ...
  • I still have to manipulate the camera ... it HANGS off the adapter, which is mounted on the tripod (like a tripod-mounted lens would). At the point i start manipulating the camera (pulling up the ...
  • I doubt you'd find much solace with Sony ... their after-warranty service is nowhere near CPS. That said however, I just returned from Africa and sent a camera and a lens for cleaning and another ...
  • Well, at least with Metabones adapter, the tripod mound is on the adapter itself, so with heavy Canon lenses it's not really an issue. The lens doesn't wobble mounted to the adapter, but the ...
  • How did you reach that conclusion? I ALWAYS use the mount on MB4. But what good does it do when as I tune the lens dials and activate zoom on the LCD (which requires touching camera body), the ...
  • I just ordered one. I generally use Sony A7R with Canon TS-E 17mm lens via Metabones 4 adapter, often for landscape and architectural work. When I properly alight and shift the lens for perfectly ...
  • I only have experience with Commlite and MB4. You won't get AF improvement with MB4. 1. MB4 has non-reflective inner chamber to reduce ghosting and flare (improvement from MB3). Commlite has a very ...
  • I shoot only RAW and get this problem a dozen times during a 500-frame shoot. This is my 3rd A7R - first one replaced due to sensor 'circle' junk, second due to firmware update frying EVF ... I had ...
  • At least on my a7r, while this happens on a daily basis and drives me crazy, it's not permanent. When you get this error, turn off the camera, then turn it back on. In most cases, playback works ...
  • - Shutter shock I can actually feel reverberation all the way down tripod leg when shutter opens. It has affected some of my tripod images with Canon 70-200mm lens @200 when I tried it, but I ...
  • The wireless has to be triggered from the front, which isn't convenient in all shooting situations. Also, when you trigger wireless shutter, a red light guess off. It was strong enough to pollute ...
