    Just sold my 5dmk3 but 85L is left. So thinking I should try it on the GFX. Regarding adapters how well they work?

    I'm not sure how many people here are using the AF capable adapters (guess we will find out).

    The Facebook GFX forum seems to have more people using and posting about the Canon AF capable adapters.

    Anyone? I almost ordered the Fotodiox as it was only $99 but then found out it has no electrical communication so no aperture control and no AF from my understanding.

    I have the Kipon Auto Focus Adapter. The only lens I have tried with it are the Canon 100mm L Macro and 85mm f/1.4L IS. Both works fairly well and AF is great. The 100mm can hunt a little when doing macro shots.. but the IS works great on both lenses. My friend did not replace his stolen 110mm because the 85mm f/1.4 IS worked that well.

    A video enclosed in the article shows the AF performance.

    Maybe that helps...

    Best regards
