Metabones Smart Adapter for Canon lenses on mFT

For me, the E-M1 in particular. See here, fro post # 311 on.

Huge addition to the mFT system where no really long lenses are to be had.

Dan,
thanks for sharing. I am personally wanting to wait for the pana/leica 100-400 is out; I probably will go that way, but knowing there are alternatives sounds good.

By the way, to keep this a little more Oly relevant: the rumors site now say that the 300 pro oly m4/3 lens will have built in IS, making it more attractive to pana shooters.

Niels

It is all Oly relevant because it means I have no further thoughts of switching away from Oly to Canon or Nikon, esp. not after yesterday. See here:

Dan, I was strictly talking about my own post. All of your posts are Oly relevant because you use the E-M1

GH2. When I move to a new lens (at this point most likely 100-400) I expect to move to something newer. Either the current G7 or the by then current em1 are my best guesses on my next camera.

If you are sticking with Panasonic then the 100-400 is for sure the better bet as the Canon 400/5.6 has no internal IS. If you are into nature/birds, you can never have enough reach and I would suspect that your zoom would get "stuck" at 400mm. I switch back and forth between the 400 alone and with the 1.4x Extender. I have both the wonderful Oly FT 50-200 and the neat little mFT 75-300, but I hardly ever use them.
