Using Tube with Meike Reverse Adapter?

Unread post by geffect » 30.01.2018 13:53

Hi,
I would like to know if it is possible to use the tube together with the Meike Reverse Adapter (http://www.meikestore.com/product/meike ... /2827.html).

I would like to reverse the Canon 40mm Pancake to get approx. a 2:1 and to able to shoot with the tube, I thought it might be possible to use the Meike Reverse Adapter.

So the configuration would be as follows:

Canon 7D Mk2 => Tube => Meike Reverse Adapter => 40mm Pancake

Do you know if the signal is being processed as expected through the Meike adapter?

Thanks,
Daniel

Hi Daniel,

we didn't test the tube with this or a similar reverse adapter. Theoretically this combination might work, since this reverse adapter supports AF function and the lens has a built-in motor, which is the main requirement for the lens to be compatible with the tube. But this can only be checked experimentally.
