Also consider if anything happens and for some reason your speed booster stop working ( its known to happen with any adapter that has electronic coupling), the you still have your backup. I use both my adapters about 50% of the time with each. Especially valuable with primes as its like 2 lenses for the price of 1.
    Excellent idea, Lenny! Thanks; I've thought about it man times but could decide between Metabones and Sigma MC-11 adapters...

    Methinks you remind me of a Danish gentleman of long ago - "To buy or not to buy....."
    Do you have trouble in the pharmacy between brands of toothpaste?
    (Actually I confess to checking amazon between brands far too often in the supermarket.)

    Lenny, I do hamletize a lot in life, I must confess. However, only on the matters of a greater importance than toothpaste

    PS. Back to the merits - I've seen a tone of YT videos, comparing the Sigma MC-11 and Metabones non-boosting adapters with various EF lenses (by Canon and Sigma mainly). Really, the feedback is so mixed and inconclusive that if I consider the MC-11 at all is mainly for price reasons; what is your guys opinion on which is "generally better"? The problem with all those comparison videos is the testers mainly focus on Auto Focus functionality, which for me is not the most important aspect at all (One Push AF and One Push AE is all I need - but they must be spot-on; the IS is far more important particularly with IBIS and lens OIS)....
