Possible to use Canon 16-35 f.28 II w/ Ikelite, a7RII and Metabones MkIV?

Recommended Posts

Hey Everybody,

 

I just switch from Canon to a Sony a7RII and since the latest firmware update to the Metabones MkIV smart adapter I've been using my old glass.

 

I'm looking to use my Canon 16-35mm F.28 II, but looking on the Ikelite site, it says it is not compatible. I saw a Lensprotogo video where they used the lense with a Canon 5Dmk3 so I'm wondering if anyone knows if it can be done with my a7RII and Metabones adapter? If so, what port and/or adapters do I need?

 

Thanks!!

I own the Sony 16-35mm zoom for my A7R II but I have been using the Canon 8-15mm Fisheye zoom with Metabones IV in a Nauticam housing. Ikelite has a solution as well using the eight inch port in believe. I would be sending Ikelite or your Ikelite dealer an e-mail for the part numbers.

Thanks Phil! I spoke with one dealer (Reef Photo) who sells a custom Zen port just for the 16-35 II, but they confirmed that It was designed to be used with Canon housings and does not account for the extra length that the Metabones adaptor creates. I'm still waiting for a response from Ikelite on any possible way to make this setup work.

Got the reply below from Ikelite. Great news, especially since this is the same extension they recommend for the Sony 16-35mm f/4, which I would like to switch to when the funds are available.

 

Hi Robert,

The 5510.28 Lens Extension and 5510.45 Modular 8” Dome can be used with the Metabones adapter and Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 lens by using an installation procedure which is slightly different from what we normally recommend:
1. Install camera body in housing
2. Attach lens extension to housing
3. Attach lens to camera body
4. Attach dome to lens extension
LensProToGo has made a great video on how this lens gets installed:
Regards,
Jean
