    Hey Frank, that's right, they have been around since donkeys years. From my experience using the C7, they work with a few PL lenses but Kowa is not one of them. When the OP said he was looking for Anamorphic and Kowa set, the C7 will not work. I prefer the adapters over the mod. The mod is good if all I want to be using the camera are PL lenses. Going back and forth between EF and PL mod will sooner or later damage the screw holes or cause a piece to become a problem. At least that is my conservative thought.

    It's probably best to choose a wording like 'most PL lenses don't work with adapters' rather than 'some don't work'.

    Yes there are some zooms that work with PL-EF adapters, but pretty much all PL primes I have seen won't.

    I've got this one: https://c7adapters.com/en/product/pl_-_ef_mount/61

    but what's the big difference between that and this one beside being stainless steel and double the price: https://c7adapters.com/en/product/pl_lens_-_ef_mount/35

    Stainless steel IS a big difference – try to hang a heavy zoom on the other one. Plus, it's harder to manufacture.

    BTW, he is using the right wording: "This adapter allows to use some PL mount lenses on EF mount cameras."
