This review is from: Canon EOS M Mount Adapter (Camera)
I love this adapter, metal construction and a build worthy of L lenses. I have been using this adapter with the 70-200 f4l and it is a joy to use, it has a quality feel befitting the L series lenses and a finish that matches, back up a bit and you wouldn't really notice there is even an adapter attached on the non-white lenses. balance with the M isn't a problem for me, I shoot holding the lens where it meets the adapter and can easily turn the zoom and focus rings. with the tripod mount attached it is unobtrusive enough that I never notice it's attached and therefore never need to remove it.
Being OEM the transmission of lens data is seamless, the lens might as well have been built for the camera in the same way as any EF or EF-S lens is for an APS-C camera. When using this adapter the EOS M gets all the information its big brothers do, as such the in camera aberration and vignetting correction that is assigned to each lens works just like it is supposed to. With the L lenses mounted to the M with its digic-5 processor the image quality is first rate for a canon aps-c camera and with the magnesium alloy construction of the body together with this adapter the feel is above and beyond consumer ranges like the rebel and fit right in with the prosumer cameras like the 50D and 7D (not like the plastic of the 60D )
Overall it is an adapter, but a great one the likes of canon converters... It just works, day after day.

another commented that the auto focus does not work? Have you tried the L lens attached and take video?

The AF works fine with my 70-200 it's not standalone video camera quick but it's also a lot of glass to move around. The face tracking works as well, even recognized faces in a picture frame and would keep them in focus. It's much faster in bright sunlight of course, I just tested it in a somewhat dim room and it can hunt a slight bit when panning around and having it refocus. But yes the AF works on the L's. still should really use manual focus to get the best video though, the same as any high end camera.
