Five years ago, the Shanghai, China-based lens adapter company Kipon became the first to offer a Canon EF to Micro Four Thirds adapter with electronic aperture control. The company is now taking its adapter another big step forward: its new Canon EF to MFT adapter is the world’s first to feature autofocus.
The adapter can be used to mount Canon EF and EF-S lenses onto Micro Four Thirds camera bodies. It features a built-in circuit board and electronic contacts that allow for communication between your camera and your lens’ autofocus and stabilization features. The adapter also allows the camera to store exact EXIF info obtained from the lens.
Kipon says its new adapters will be available for $285 each starting on May 10, 2015. You should be able to find it for purchase on eBay after that date.
