I have an F3. Wondering if the new Metabones T CINE FZ to EF adapter works on the F3?

 

Not just in theory...but has anyone tried & tested it?

 

Is the FZ mount and camera connectivity the same on F3 as F5/55?

Yeah Sony FZ is Sony FZ. Just like an EF mount is the same on every Canon body (unless It's mirrorless or an EF-S). Do you need the electronics to still communicate with your camera? If not, you can get something just as good for a fraction of the price from Fotodiox

Thanks for that thought.

 

I'd like to communicate directly to EF lenses, yes.

 

I'm sure the FZ mount on the F3 is physically the same as F5/55, just wondering if the software in the F3 will control the very new Metabones FZ - EF. Metabones site only states 'tested on F5/55', although other sources (including B&H) suggest it should work on all FZ mounts.

 

Just want to be sure before shelling out $1000 USD's.

 

I've emailed Metabones, so hopefully I'll get a reply.

 

Thanks Macks!
