I just got my Sony A7rii and have been playing with it for a day or two. One of the problems I encountered using Speedbooster/MC-11 adapter with my Canon lenses were auto-focus during video recording and also making full use of 5-axis.
So I ordered the Sony FE 28-70mm kit lens, which isn’t the best lens out there but it is super light (295 grams) and I can finally use all 5-axis for stabilization. FYI, if you use Canon lenses, you will either use the IS on the lens or the IBIS on the camera, you cannot use both at the same time and take full advantage of the 5-axis stabilization on a7rii. This would also work great with my Beholder DS-1 gimbal due to its lightweight.
In this tutorial, I show you how to MOD any Canon EFS lenses to fit full frame cameras or speedboosters used on Sony or Panasonic cameras like Sony A6300, A7Rii, Panasonic GH4, etc…etc…
This tutorial is primarily for those of you who want to use Canon EFS lenses for videography on speedboosters/Sigma MC-11 since due to crop factor, you may be able to fully utilize an EFS lens on such a setup.
