Any suggestions for a wide to normal (or short telephoto) lens for the new full frame E mount cameras?
I was looking at the Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD but it turns out that it doesn't have Image Stabilisation on the E mount versions (because some E mount cameras has that built into the body, not the A7 ones though...frustrating).
The other alternative was Sony's Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS which does have stabilisation but I'm not keen on the motorised focus ring which also doesn't allow for repeating focus pulls.
Canon EF 24-70mm f/4.0L IS USM with a Metabones adapter?
thanks for your reply. I don't know about the kit lens, in that case I might just as well get the Vario-Tessar T* FE 24-70mm f/4 ZA OSS i mentioned above (a bit more expensive but f4 throughout and Zeiss) but they both have that dreadful motorised focus... Hmm maybe I'm being to demanding...?
I've been using the metabones adapter to EF and put my canon lenses on there. I have been shooting on this for about 2 months now.
i've gained confidence in this setup. At first the adapter plus the lens seemed heavy--too much for the camera to handle (Tamron especially). But i've been flinging this stuff around quite a bit, and i feel better about it.
one troublesome issue is that sometimes the camera won't give me control of the iris through the metabone, but i found manually resetting the adapter or the lens itself does the trick.
I made this choice because i was not impressed with the E-mount lenses at this time. I would recommend doing the same.
