mattytrua shitty converter
I went the shitty converter route (commlite ef to E) at the beginning when I switched to Sony in 2015 and heavily regretted it, and literally blew questionable amounts of shots because the converter randomly decides to lose electronic connection to the camera and the aperture jumps wide open mid-shot and you have to take the lens on and off and wiggle it around to get it to connect again. Cold weather made it act up even more, can't tell you how many times I was manning my tripod at PCs jumps where someone nails their trick while I'm shaking around my lens connection cursing at the commlite, missing the shot completely. Not professional, not dependable and not worth the headache of even a single scenario like that IMO.
Ever since getting the metabones IV adapter its been rock solid, no slop/wiggle on both the lens and body side, and zero electronic connection loss for aperture. I regret not just buying that from the start. If you're only
in slow and low stress shooting scenarios where you don't mind futzing around with the adapter then sure save the $ since its 1/4th the cost, but otherwise buy right or buy twice. Besides autofocus the metabones makes it feel like a native lens where you forget there's even an adapter.
I'm sure plenty of people have great experiences with the cheap adapters but just wanted to warn of how truly frustrating things can possibly get
