Deos anyone know whether the EX3 will work with the Canon EF series?
I got a nice selection of long telephoto lenses I would like to use for wildlife.

I suspect there might be some sort of step down adapter out there. I'd give a ring maybe to B&H in NYC. Be aware that with still lenses you'll probably have some vignetting, serious breathing and other possible optical anomalies.

Thanks Noah,
From your reply I assume you don't know for certain. I am asking as I can't use my Canon lenses with the Sony Z7, however, I do use a few Nikon still lenses with an adapter.
BTW - I get fantastic results - no anomalities at all ! just a crisp sharp, rich colours and contrast footage. I guess it has a lot to do with the quality of the lenses you are using.
Cheers,

the EX-3 is a 1/2" CMOS imager and 1/2 lens will work find any 2/3" lens will need an adaptor

as far as i know canon ef lenses need power for adjusting the iris, And Nikons AF don't if I am right.

Hi

I know this is a rather old thread, bit like the clothes I am wearing having spent all my cash on an EX3. However have you had any luck with finding and EX3-Canon EF adaptor? I have been looking at the letus but am undecided.

Your thread is over a year old but here's an answer I just came across for the original adapter from Canon EF to Sony EX3:
Canon EF to Sony EX3 Adaptor : Lens Adaptor.Com

Hope this is a help to anyone that comes to this thread.

Birger.com make an adaptor for the Red and Panny AF100/101 giving full control of all the Canon EF lens functions including IS, aperture and autofocus.
The EX3 is a bit long in the tooth now so I doubt they'll bother making a version for it sadly.
