Huge! New Metabones Canon to NEX adapter with electronic aperture control!

Now that is a small news that could turn out to be very important! I know of many Canon users that are tempted to join the NEX system. Canurus (Click here) announced a super Canon C-mount to E-mount adapter that will make their choice much easier :) This isn’t just one of those cheap manual only adapters you usually found here on eBay. It has electronic aperture control! And Canon lenses with Image Stabilization will also work on your NEX! More info:

  • True electronic integration of aperture diaphragm – let camera automatically choose aperture in P or S exposure modes, or dial in yourself on the camera body in A or M modes.
  • Powered by camera body. No external power source required.
  • Wide open button (opposite of depth-of-field preview function) makes manual focusing easy.

Estimate launch date for the adapter is January 21st!

P.S.: The Sony NEX-5n is back in Stock in limited quantities via third party reselelrs on Amazon (Click here).

Optical versus Electronic viewfinder. A new POLL!

Today Sony made it clear once again that electronic viewfinders are the future while Nikon stated they are committed to optical viewfinders. A year ago I asked if users would prefer Sony to make camera with optical viewfinder or if they bet on the new electronic viewfinder “philosophy” from Sony. And the results were more on less on par. But one year ago we only had that not so good viewfinder technology from the A55 as reference and today we have that super high quality OLED technology from the A77/NEX-7. I am curious to see if you changed your mind and if in your opinion Sony is betting on the right horse:

Where lies the future?
