For a while Sony had been running a promo where you received a free Metabones EF lens adapter with an Fs series of camera. However, they discontinued the promo a few months ago. The good news is the promo has just been brought back. Now, when you purchase any Fs7 or Fs5 camera, as well as the Fs700 and EA50, you qualify to receive a FREE Metabones Mark IV EF adapter.
It is important to note that this is a MAIL-IN claim system…. the adapter is not in the camera box. This has tripped up some buyers who were planning on using the adapter with the camera immediately only to discover that it takes 4-8 weeks to receive the adapter.
However, we’ve been helping customers out with what i call the Metabones buy-back plan. If you need to use a Metabones adapter right away simply buy one at the time you buy the camera. Then, when you receive your free Metabones adapter via the mail in 4-8 weeks, i’ll buy it from you. That way you get to start shooting with the adapter right away and it doesn’t really cost you anything additional in the end.
Also, for any customers who purchased a Sony Fs series camera between May 10th and July 31st when the Metabones promo was suspended, Sony is officially honoring your claims for the FREE Metabones adapter.
