    Looks a bit unwieldy, but actually suits me for balance. I can tuck my left elbow into my hip, grasp the belly of the lens in my left hand and I use back focus setup which also helps to grip.

    Auto-Focus seems as fast as on a Canon. Manual focus works well and the peaking is very clear.

    I think Sony did themselves a big favour by making it work so well with Canon glass. I can imagine a bit of heft can come in handy in certain situations.

    Hi Bart
    Sigma made the adapter for its Contemporary Range of Canon EF fit lenses to work with Sony, to widen its customer base. Did a good job.
    Cheers

    Looking good. I run a different adaptor but mine looks about the same at the moment.

    Depending on how much you like the adapted setup, the cheap Canon 50mm STM runs great on my A7II as well. Took it out to a lantern parade and shot wide open up to 12800 with the shots being pretty amazing for the ISO.
