How my lenses perform with Sigma MC-11 adapter on a6500
13

Here are my results using the Sigma MC-11 Canon EF to Sony E mount converter/adapter (firmware v1.03) on each of my Canon mount lenses on an a6500. Upgrading to v1.03 made a huge difference in converter performance. Build quality and fit of the converter is excellent. The a6500 IBIS works with all of my non image stabilized lenses. Image stabilized lenses use lens IS, converter turns in camera IS off automatically and then turns camera IS back on when lens removed, except as noted below for the Tamron 150-600mm. I am very happy with the performance of the MC-11.

Sigma 12-24 f4.5-5.6 version I
Fast focus, occasional hunting, accurate focus

Canon 17-40mm f4L
Fast focus, no hunting, accurate focus

Canon 24-105mm f4L IS
Fast Focus, no hunting, accurate focus, lens IS works

Canon 35mm f2
Does not focus
UPDATE: after cleaning all lens, converter, and camera electrical contacts 35/2 works perfectly with converter

Canon 50mm f1.4
Good focus speed, some modest hunting, accurate focus

Sigma 18-200mm f3.5-6.3 OS Macro C (newest version of this focal length)
Does not focus

Canon 40mm f2.8 STM

Fast focus, no hunting, accurate focus

Canon 70-200mm f4L IS

Fast Focus, no hunting, accurate focus, lens IS works

Tamron 150-600mm f5-6.3 version I

operate unless you manually turn OSS off in camera settings
