Forum Thread: Third-party lens adapters

Third-party lens adapters

Hi all, I'm here to see if anyone has managed to find lens adapters that work properly on the 7D. I have manual focus/aperture lenses with Pentax K and Olympus OM mounts but the adapters I've tried don't work as advertised. I can't get any form of AF confirmation in either Aperture Priority or Manual mode, despite the description of the adapters saying you can. I've tried three adapters from different sellers, they all worked with my 300D but none with the 7D. The only modes they work in are Creative Auto (yuk) and any of C1, C2 and C3. So yeah, I can use them, but not in the modes I want.

I have of course asked Canon for advice they they pretty much said they don't care. Has anyone else had more luck with these adapters?
