Can a FF Canon lens be used as a FF lens via Metabones or Viltrox adapters on APS-C or MFT bodies?

Can a FF Canon lens be used as a FF lens via Metabones, Viltrox, etc., 0.71x or other adapters on APS-C or MFT Canon or non-Canon bodies? Not sure where to post

Part of my collection of nice old Canon glass includes some wide angle and fisheye lenses. I no longer have a Full Field (FF) Canon body (theft). I have seen some web postings about various Metabones or Viltrox adapters, mostly to Sony or micro 4/3rds (MFT) camera bodies. I have a Canon T5 Rebel body, an Olympus 5 Mark II MFT body and occasional access to a Sony A6000 body. Even if my Canon glass would have to be used in manual focus or exposure mode, is there an adapter that allows my lenses to maintain FF or non crop-sensor FOV to the crop-sensor camera sensor? This would be particularly vital for the fish eye lens where it simply does not “work” on the old T5 APS C camera body.

Hoping to avoid the need of buying a new, expensive and heavy FF Canon body, as my wide angle lenses are not used that often.

Thanks in advance. If I have posted to the incorrect forum please let me know where to post.

From NOLA with love.
