I switched from Canon to Sony one year ago now and generally been happy about the switch. Due to being a hybrid shooter, who needs to provide 4k video to clients. But recently my work has shifted toward more photography than video and I am really missing CFWA and the 'fisheye look' that came from my previous setup (Canon 7D and Tokina 10-17mm). I still have the Tokina 10-17mm in my arsenal and have adapted it with a cheap Fotodiox Pro Smart adapter onto my current Camera a Sony a6500. Unfortunately, I am unable to use the Tokina daily as it is too unreliable with AF (with photography) and even locks the camera completely on some occasions. I have since decided to upgrade to full frame and have chosen to stay with Sony A7iii as I still need the excellent video performance from the Sony. But the problem still exists that Sony doesn't have a dedicated Fisheye Zoom. Whilst searching the interwebs with continuous research on the best options I have come across the fantastic Canon 8-15mm Fisheye which can be adapted to the Sony by a Metabones adapter. I have read a few threads and articles on people using this setup but with not much detail of its success. I would like to know if the AF works, (luckily I am in warm tropical waters so ambient light isn't too bad) also if it ever crashes or locks the camera? Anyone with a Sony A7 series camera and the Metabones Canon setup could share some light would be most helpful. I have also looked at other options like the Sony 16-35mm and the very expensive Nauticam WACP but have ruled both out because the 16-35mm is still a rectilinear and the WACP is too expensive.
