Re: Viltrox rf-ef adapter issue

Sorry for your pain.  Good thing  you found that screw!

When I got my R5 back on August 1, 2020, I already had one of the Viltrox adapters (the control ring version) and a Canon adapter, since I had more than two EF telephoto lenses I planned to use with my r5. Not only did the Viltrox not work (probably a firmware issue that likely could have been fixed) but it didn't fit well. There was play at the mount. And I had the Canon right there and it fit perfectly. I don't want play at the mount because the connecting parts could wear down. I sent it back and I advise people to just bit the bullet and get the Canon version.
