Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot with manual mode or aperture priority mode. Infinity focusing is allowed.
Compatible Cameras (including, but not limited to): 1d/1ds, Mark II, III, IV, X, C, 5D, 5D Mark II/III 7D, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D, 50D, 60D, 60Da, Rebel xt, xti, xs, xsi, t1i, T2i, T3, T3i, T4, 300D, 350D, 400D, 450D, 500D, 550D, 1000D

~~UPDATED REVIEW~~ I'm not changing the 4stars because it I base my stars on what the product say it will do and it does its job fine.
Key factors why you should not.
1. There's an optical pieces - adding a 'zoom'(1.4x), degrades picture quality, theres a max aperture(probably around a 1.4).
2. No electronic function(basically no auto-focus).
Factors why I choose to get it.
1. Had old lens that had uses/cheap used lens on ebay/craigslist(but sadly became quickly obsolete)
2. For the fun of it.
Conclusion - In the end, it became a waste of money. My suggestion on new lens, just get the Canon ones or find an adapter without a lens.
However, the problem arose when I started shooting with it. All the images shot with my A-mount lenses connected w/ this adapter were super soft, blurry, foggy, and any lights in the scene would bloom into a blobby mess. Forget about nice crisp bokehs and stars. Also images were murky and darker than what the meter is indicating. In short, the images I got using this adapter were a big disappointment and basically unusable. I did some research and found that many have had the same issue w/ Fotodiox Pro adapters, albeit for other mounts like MD for example. Perhaps it's the inherent nature of glass adapters but certainly, the 4 glowing reviews (before mine) did not indicate this. This is a good reason not to trust products with only 4 total reviews. The only reason that someone may want to keep this adapter is because they have very specialized or beloved A-mount lenses that they must use on a EOS body, or that they're shooting mainly in broad daylight stopped down to at least f8. Even then, the images are still soft and bloomy, and certainly not for anything approaching professional or even prosumer usage. Be warned!
The reason I gave this 4 stars is because this may or may not be the adapters fault...might just be the old lens?
The adapter fits very snug with little movement and allows me to use older Minolta lenses on my new Canon body which is the whole point after all and it does this well.
The dreaded glass piece is easily removable! You simply hold the glass between a cloth, and gently screw the adapter clockwise until the screw-in glass piece comes undone. Infinity focus is not achievable without the glass, so don't toss it. However, if you want to be able to shoot with this adapter on days where things are not perfectly bright, you will still be able to focus sharply without the glass and a zoom lens, just with a slightly wonky range, but now with those Minolta colors that everyone raves about.
This works great with my Beercan 70-210. Purchase it and REMOVE THAT GLASS!
