In this video, I look at the new Canon EOS M10 and Sony A5100 and how well they both work with Canon EF lenses when paired with the Canon EF to EF-M Adapter and the Metabones EF – E Speed Booster Ultra (note: link is the newest version), respectively.

Before the Digital Rebel, the Canon Rebel brand was already very strong with several film cameras a part of the product line. There are so many lenses in Canon’s product line. And then, when you consider all the lenses offered by third party manufacturers like Sigma, Tamron and Tokina, knowing which lens to purchase can get confusing.
My goal is to identify the lenses that meet your needs and wants, while keeping them in a budget range to match the camera that you use. [Read more…]
