Re: Warning: Viltrox EF-M2 short-circuit with EF adapter. Might happen with other "dumb" lenses?

I've ordered the other day a Viltrox EF-FX2 focal reducer as an alternative to my Lens Turbo II to use it only for vintage lenses. I don't own any EF lens.

Now I'm very worried to fry my camera. After reading this I've seen in Amazon there are many complaints too of similar short circuits using VIltrox extension tubes, so this kind of electrical issues maybe are common.

All my adapters are made of metal, do you think that electrical tape covering the pins could do anything or it's a dumb idea?  Any other solution?

Thanks in advance for any tip
