    For a first attempt at this concept, I think Canon left a lot of room for the next version. For the price, you would think it would have come out of the gate with "L" quality build. Disappointing in price, but excited about the potential, especially once it gets to the lower end camera lineup that I use. Great video, thanks!! By the way, just did a video about the new Sigma 16mm F1.4 for EF-M cameras, check out the results if that is a camera line you use!!

    I wish there was more resistance on the little dial when adjusting the ND stops

    Didn’t think about it until now…the adapter only works with old lenses so for new RF glass you have to still buy standard ND filters. You can only use the drop in for the EF glass. That’s too bad. I’m picking up an EOSR and just new I would be able to use the drop in filters. Guess I didn’t think that one out lol.

    Thanks for this review, Tom. I enjoy your insights. Have you looked into the new Metabones RF Speedbooster? It give an extra stop of light and almost eliminates the 4k crop. It looks like a godsend for EOS R users.There are only two YouTube videos talking about it.I would like to hear from someone who is using it. I reached out to Peter and Matti as well.

    Can you not get a clear filter printed – surely someone can do that.

    Another great video! Glad I didn’t buy this I will definitely purchase Peter McKinnon’s ND filter instead
