If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save the cost of purchase on new lenses. Fotodiox offers a range of adapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters.
This Fotodiox lens mount adapter is made with high standard precision. It’s all metal design and polished surface is designed to guarantee a smooth mounting and long lasting experience. It allows Leica Visoflex M39 Lenses to fit on a Canon EOS camera body. This Visoflex M39 Adapter can also be used as a macro extension tube for 35mm M39 Leica Lenses.
Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode. Infinity focusing is guaranteed with Visoflex Lenses Only, Macro on all non Visoflex M39 Lenses.
Compatible Cameras (including, but not limited to): 1d/1ds, Mark II, III, IV, X, C, 5D, 5D Mark II/III 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 60Da, Rebel xt, xti, xs, xsi, t1i, T2i, T3, T3i, T4, 300D, 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 1000D

This product is amazing and returns astonishing macro results. The pictures are proof, and for the price why wouldn't you want to buy this product?
I use a Canon 70D Ethan had an EF mount. The lens mount piece locks into place and the camera fram mount also locks into place. I achieved the below results with a 50mm lens and all extensions attached. The liquid in the cup is carbonated water.
Since these extension tubes do not have the electrical connections, you will need to mount your lens to your camera and set the apature to the largest setting. Then, turn off your camera, mount the extension tubes to your lens and then to your camera. Now you are ready! Get as close as you can to your subject then back away slowly and manually focus the lens. A tripod is recommended to reduce camera shake for obvious reasons.
The quality of the extension tubes are great! No flaws in the metal.
Don't miss this opportunity for macro photography without having to invest in an expensive lens!
My partner wanted to get back into photography and she wanted to upgrade from her older Rebel T1i to a newer camera and went with the Rebel T5 which was on sale. She was ecstatic when she saw how wonderful my pictures came out when I was shooting on a Panasonic G7 and with older Canon FD lenses using a focal reducer.
We got this adapter to go with her Rebel T5 and she paired it with a vintage Canon FD 50mm f1.8 lens. We noticed a lot of haziness and softness at f1.8. I thought it may be the lens itself, maybe fungus or debris. We thoroughly checked the lens and it's extremely clean, almost perfect. The adapter is clean as well.
Also, the other thing I questioned was the crop factor since there's a glass in the adapter. I conducted a quick test. A tripod was set up 4ft from my test bench. I mounted my own Rebel T5 on it with both a vintage Canon FD 24mm f2.8 lens using this adapter and a Canon EF-S 24mm f2.8 lens. From the results you can see the crop factor on the vintage lens compared to the standard EF-S lens. Being at f2.8 also caused the haziness in the image.
Overall the adapter is decent. For the price it does its job on being able to use vintage FD lenses on a Canon Rebel camera. Moving the f-stop up at least one above your lowest will help clear up your images and prevent the haziness. I didn't give the adapter a perfect five stars due to this concern and at the same time I avoided three stars because the cost is a lot lower than other adapters with glass elements. It's good for using vintage lenses but just keep in mind its limitations.
These work as advertised. They lock up real tight.
One comment to everyone that has said that they've had trouble getting them off of their camera once snapped in -
If you look at the set you will see the end that attaches to your camera has that small bolt sticking out. You have to push that forward (away from the camera in line with your lens) to get the ring to release from your camera. It is designed to work like it does.
If I had a suggestion for the manufacturer it would be that the little bolt thing-a-ma-doo-dad works ok (once you realize how to get it to release) - using a lever style or something that is angled so that it is easier to get too - and / or - simply putting an arrow with the words push -> to release . . . . would both make it more noticeable aiding the people who buy the product . . . and aiding you by not having them return something as defective after having tried to not destroy their camera getting it off - because you didn't give the most simple description of how to get it to release.)
They do work and work pretty smoothly once you realize what you have to do to get it to release but the other issue with how you have this built is there's not a lot of space between the camera body and your little bolt head.
Anyone considering buying these - no worries they seem to work just fine but it's pretty important to know how to get the thing to release - and that little gizmo is really the only thing about these that isn't what I'd call pretty decent manufacturing. It works it's just kind of crude compared to the rest of the product.
This lens adaptor looks well machined and feels sturdy in my hand, but every breech-lock mount lens I put on it does not work correctly, more specifically, the aperture is not allowed to operate its full range – I can only seem to get it to go between wide open to about 50% closed, around f/8 or so depending of course on which lens I am using.
I have three breech-lock mount lenses, two made by Sears, and the other made by Star-D (probably all made by Samyang) and they all act the same way. Upon further inspection, it appears that the breech-lock collar that is supposed to rotate around the mount on the camera only turns a little bit before it is synched down and will not rotate any more. If I really grip it, and force it to rotate just a little more, then I can get a little more range out of the aperture, but only a stop or two, never getting any where near f/22. Those three breech-lock mount lenses all work great on my AE-1 and the collar rotates a lot more when connected to that camera.
I do have one Canon branded lens that is a bayonet mount and it works well with this adaptor, allowing full range of the aperture with no problems. The difference is that is doesn’t have the rotating collar to synch-lock the lens onto the camera’s body mount.
My guess is that there is some machining tolerance that wasn’t set right when the adaptor was manufactured, probably only a couple thousandths of an inch, but enough nonetheless.
I’m unhappy that this only seems to work correctly with bayonet mount lenses when the instructions state that it will work with that and breech-lock lenses.
I haven’t seen anyone else anywhere mention this type of problem, maybe I just got a bad adaptor?
Compared with the cheap options out there, this one is pricy but worth it.
I am using this on a 5D classic. Having tried quite a few from different places (from £0.99 to 18.95) I found the Fotodiox Pro physically fits best and the thickness of the plate is just perfect, while others are all wobbly (the locking hole is slightly bigger and the base plate is too thin making the lens sunken into the camera more than it should). Because of their loose connections, when you are trying to turn the focus ring by only a little amount, you will move the whole lens slightly instead of actually adjusting the focus. For this reason the focus from the others are always hit and miss, they appear to be fine (not perfectly fine) in viewfinder but the image is just slightly out of focus.
This Fotodiox Pro sits very steady on the camera which also makes the image seen in viewfinder stable and sharper. Makes the handling much pleasant and the image quality so much better, the proper quality one would expect from the legendary vintage lenses. Also the built quality of this adapter is excellent, something built to last.
Considering the time invested in researching into and money spent on buying the vintage lenses (the days they being dirt cheap is long gone), is it not ridiculous to ruin all the fun and image quality (which the lengthy researching is all about) just to save a few quid?
Have spent a few hours out of the last two days trying to fit this product on to the lens. It barely fits on my 7D and is very hard to remove when I do get it on. I hope it has not caused any damage to either my lens or camera.
The label says it is 'made in china' in contrast to what they advertised on their old instructional videos of how to install the adapter. My suspicion is that they have outsourced to china without sufficient testing of any kind. The result is a poor quality product, incapable of doing the task it is sold for.
There are a few differences in how the product looks from the amazon images to the actual product(writing and hole placement) which looks more like the adapters on their old instructional videos on Youtube.
Needless to say I shall have to return this pointless item which was a waste of my time.
This adapter (and its clones such as Pixco) is your only option if you want to attach Sony Alpha to Canon. There are two issues though:
Firstly, the difference in flange distance between Sony Alpha and Canon is of the order of a millimetre. The adapter is clearly not a millimetre long, so most of the glass is actually correcting the added length of the adapter itself, rather than correcting the difference in flange distance between the two lens types! Fotodiox are obviously doing this because they have only one standard size of adapter, but a thinner adapter would have been more appropriate as it would require less glass.
Secondly, the adapter introduces a +0.5 zoom. Great if you want this, but not so good if you are trying to use a wide angle lens as I was! This issue totally defeated my objective!
Since this is actually your only option for attaching a Sony A to Canon AF, I'm awarding 4 stars. If a better alternative appears (i.e. an adapter that is far thinner), I'd be tempted to give that a try, but right now, you are stuck with fotodiox!
I have 3 old Tamron Adaptall 2 lenses. A 28-200mm f3.5-5.6, a 350mm f5.6 mirror lens, and a 500mm f8 mirror lens. I also have a Tamron SP Adaptall 2 x2 teleconverter. I wanted to use the two mirror lenses with my Canon 70d. The focus confirm works with the 28-200 when wide open throughout the zoom range but would not intially confirm with either of the mirror lenses. I tried again on a much brighter day and now get reliable focus confirmation with the 500mm mirror and intermittently with the teleconverter fitted. On the 350mm mirror focus confirm works with the teleconverter but not without it fitted. I have no idea why it won't work in that one configuration. I didn't carry the 28-200 with me today so didn't test it with the teleconverter.
The product has great quality and feels sturdy and durable considering the price. Be aware that the ring only allows you connect your Nikon lenses to your canon body by mechanical methods. This means you will not be able to control the auto-focus and aperture of the lens, as this adaptor does not connect the lens contacts to the body. The adaptor has a locking mechanism, ensuring that your lens does not come off when in use and makes it easier for you to remove the lens from the body.
This adaptor is an inexpensive ideal alternative to the higher priced adaptors for prime lenses or lenses that have f. stop and focus rings, as you will not be able to use the body to control any features of the lens. I bought this for my Canon 70D to use a Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm prime lens and it works perfectly.
Why 4 stars, I already have a straight adaptor that allows just marco shots (different vendor/maker) and whilst it works well the fit is not as tight as this which when you have a long heavy lens you don't want rocking on the camera body mount really, so this gains a star for the precise fit it had to both the lens and camera body.
Limitations you can not use the lens in full apperature as if you do this you get a softer image and also no doubt in bright light a noticeable halo.
Stopping any lens tested (I have three) to f4 clearly closes the spines enough to make a light pass tighter then the glass lens in this adaptor which can only be a good thing as I guess the optics are not going to be superb at this price. fully open the image is milky anyway.
So for the money I thought worth a go and for the quality of the mount joins on this adaptor deffinately.
This is a well-engineered piece of kit, holding the heavy Mamiya 645 lenses and/or Bellows to the Canon EOS mount - there is no play at all.
BUT this is a waste of money (the same applies to the Fotodiox Tamron-EOS Adapter) for anyone with a Canon EOS 1DsMkII, which is my camera. The mount touches on an internal switch which tells the camera to interrogate the lens for its settings. As a consequence, when you press the shutter button, the camera is expecting data and when none are forthcoming, it locks (Error Code 01 shows) and only a second press of the shutter button clears the camera. Fotodiox states that this and the Tamron adapter are compatible with the 1DsMkII - this is not true. It works superbly with most Canon DSLRs but NOT the 1DsMkII! I now have a lovely, well-machined paperweight plus another for the Tamron-EOS adapter.
Provided you don't need to use the adapter on my camera model, I can heartily recommend this product. Fotodiox should take note that their info is wrong.
I needed to connect my nikon 50mm AI lens to my canon D650 camera and it work a treat!
with this old lens the adapter did not 'click' into place as such but the connection was nice and tight with no play and no need to modify with tacky bits of paper for a snug fit.
The adapter at the camera end did click into place however and fits perfectly.
word of warning: do not attempt to take your lens off the adapter while fitted to the camera! press the release button on the camera and remove both the adapter and lens together, then remove your lens from your adapter. That way you don't run the risk of doing what I did with a previous adapter, and end up having to force the adapter from the lens after it became stuck due to trying to be clever and change lens on the fly during a shoot, because I tried to swap lens out to save time and wrongly attached the lens to the adapter while still attached to my canon, resulting in it becoming jammed.
Suffice to say I've learnt from a quite 'common' mistake the hard way, and thought I'd pass this info on.
Apart from this, a great product, and efficient service with an incredible fast dispatch given the distance !!
buy with confidence.
I bought this, thinking that it might just revive an old, but pristine,Yashica/Kyocera AF 24mm lens that has been stuck in a cupboard unused for years. Sadly it did not – the rear element of the 24mm lens, when focused on infinity, projects about 5mm behind the camera mount. Five millimeters isn’t much – but it is enough to cause the rear of the lens to collide with the optics within the adapter. Because of this restriction on the rear travel of the lens, the maximum focus distance for the lens drops to about 350mm. Infinity - it most assuredly is not. The original Amazon listing noted that the adapter's optics were removable (for macro work) – this may be so – but no instructions were provided on how to correctly remove the glass. The optics seemed tightly screwed down and I couldn't unscrew it by hand (it sits in a confined space which is difficult to get your fingers into) – nor are there any slots into which a spanning screwdriver might fit to assist with removal. As, by this point I had decided to return the item, I did not attempt the dubious and potentially damaging technique of tackling it with pliers!
On the plus side, the item itself seems nicely constructed – though the blue aperture control ring is a little narrow, too smooth and is not raised above the rest of the body – so it makes access to the aperture control a bit fiddly. As I don't have any other Yashica AF lenses I can't comment on its suitability for use with them – I can only say that it is (almost) entirely unsuitable for the 24mm lens - and for that reason can only give it 2 stars.
My Rokkor lens is very old- maybe 30 years. The adaptor fits this lens and my canon 600D perfectly. It is well made and focusses to infinity. Of course focusing and aperture has to be manually controlled. By selecting manual mode on the camera the camera's internal metering can be used although in my case I had to compensate by about 2 stops under. If one is shooting in RAW I guess it won't matter anyway. A first class product.
This is the second OM to EOS adaptor that I have purchased. The first was a cheap Chinese one that fitted well to camera but was horrbly loose on the lens. This was fixable by tightening the spring.
This item initially seemed to be well made but was horribly tight on both the lens and the camera body and it was with some anxiety that I put them together, wondering if I was going to be able to get them off again. The body fit loosened up and was quite usable but the fit to the lens was still much too tight although, having another adaptor I could simply leave it on this lens permanently except that I want to be able to use my olympus macro extension tubes which should fit between the adaptor and the lens!
Contacted Fotodiox and after initially asking me to return the item they decided to send me a replacement. This is a perfect fit on the camera body, a little bit tight on the lens but more than acceptable and I am altogether impressed by the service.
This is an excellently engineered adapter allowing Mamiya 645 lenses to be used on Canon cameras. There is no electronic connection between the camera and the lens so it has to used in the manual mode. The lens fits into the adapter and the adapter to the lens with no free play or tightness, it is an example of precision machining.
Once fitted, set the camera to manual exposure and set the exposure using either a light meter or the camera's own exposure system. Focusing is best done a full aperture but cameras no longer have microprism or split image finders to assist. On cameras such as Canon, Nikon, etc. with the image stabilisation built into the lens this is lost.
As to the performance of the lenses when used this is down to the specification of the Mamiya lenses. Tested against modern Canon lenses the old Mamiya lenses perform no better than Canon's latest offerings. However, the edge definition is superb as you are now using on the small centre area of a lens that was made for a much larger negative.
Use this adapter with Mamiya lenses for portrait and landscape work and the combination is excellent. For action photography keep with the automatic lenses but this is not a failing of the adapter.
I already had a Fotodiox Pentax 645 to Canon EOS adapter and which worked fine, so when I acquired more lenses I decided to invest in more of the same.
This is a simple, but well-made (though expensive) adapter. It functions just fine, and there are no real negatives about it. [See update]
However, it did take four trans-Atlantic shipments (and 3 returns) to get the correct adapter sent to me. That said, the supplier always sent me a new shipment as soon as I informed him that I had received the wrong adapter.
I'm told that they've now sorted out their warehouse issues and this shouldn't happen again.
Interestingly, I did discover that although the item is purchased through Amazon, it is sold by a third party, and that when the wrong adapter was first sent, Amazon's help was limited to "sort it out with the seller, yourself".
Still, while waiting for the correct adapter to arrive, I also bought a Pentax-to-EOS adapter from China via E**y at half the price, and which -- initially, anyway -- seems to work just as well.
Further use of this adapter has shown a problem: not all apertures on a lens are accessible with this adapter. It will, for example stop the lens down to, say, f8 - so that everything between f2.8 and f8 is selectable.
Everything above f8 (e.g. f22) is not selectable.
Not so much of a problem, but something I must talk to Fotodiox about. An older Fotodiox adapter that I have doesn't show this problem, but -- based on its weight -- it's probably of different design/manufacture.
I initially gave this a one star because I could not believe an adapter is not intended to be reused on different Nikon lenses, so once you put it on its intended to be left on there (make sure you buy a Canon rear cap). BUT I have changed it to 5 star, as having looked at a few of these Nikon to canon adapters, they are all the same in that they are not intended to be reused! So once you put it on the lens it should stay on there.
It has absolutely no play and fits Nikon to C100 perfectly. Its solid built as well, so I have changed the score to a 5 and re-ordered another one.
I bought this adapter to use with a 30 y/old Olympus Zuiko 50mm f1.8 on my Canon EOS 600D.
Delivery was very fast from the USA and the adapter is very quick and easy to use.
No problems connecting it to the lens, just twists on, and it had a very good fit with the camera body... not too tight and no noticeable movement.
You can leave it attached to the lens when not in use as the Canon lens end-piece will screw directly onto the adapter.
I've also tried it successfully with an old Olympus 135mm lens.
On video mode the camera initially gave a "no lens error" but still recorded without a problem.
This version does not have the focus confirmation chip - if focusing is a problem it's worth trying the Magic Lantern firmware which has some software focus aids, but with the live view screen zoomed in it's not too difficult to get a decent focus.
I rated this as five stars because it does exactly what it's supposed to do: no frills but it's well made and easy to operate; and for less than £25 delivered it makes a whole load of legacy lenses available for dSLRs.
