I was thinking to get some sort of adapter for my Sony Nex 7 (see reviews here) to be able mount Canon EOS lenses on it, I have a huge selection of them. After research I found that there are basically two options I have: manual focus adapters (simple screw-in lens mount, no electronic connection) for $15-40, or a serios lens adapter which supports auto-focus and aperture change for over $400.
You can see the whole range of adapters on the market on Amazon: Sony e-mount EOS adapters.
After I've done my research, I decided to go with EzFoto Pro (of course Pro! :-) Canon EOS lens adapter for Sony E-mount NEX cameras. It had built-in aperture which sometime works (see the video review), and I am quite happy with it.
I did not want to spend $400 for that super cool Metabones (what a name!) Canon EF Lens to Sony NEX Smart Adapter II. In general, I am not going to use those large Canon lenses on Sony Nex 7 extensively and need the adapter for an occasional use (think about "for fun"), and also I like the idea of having something 100% manual in my hands. It brings back the feeling from those good old days when I had my firs SLR, a "Soviet Camera" Zetith TTL. It was cool :-)
