Confession that I was not looking at the EF-Mx for adaptation of modern lenses. I was looking for an option for a focal length reducer for use with MF vintage lenses, at a price below the Metabones.
If you don't need the electronics, you might investigate the Zhongyi Lens Turbo II... good optics, but some have noted a tendency for vignetting with long lenses. I don't know if it's actually any worse than the Viltrox in this regard or not, but there might be some comparisons out there...

Thanks for the info. Have one on the way; managed to find a "no BS" seller. I'll likely use it mainly for the short end; have a Pentax-K Vivitar 17mm on the way to check out.

Has there been a FW update that allows the EF-M2 to work with manual focus lenses? I previously read that MF lenses wouldn't work without covering the contacts on the adapter.
