This adapter type has chipped versions too, which provide digital focus confirmation for the camera. If you'd like to read more about the limitations of adapter chips, this article can help you.Certain C/Y lenses might overhang the bayonet lock. The overhanging lens housing or aperture control mechanism might cause issues with certain EF cameras, since the mirror might get stuck in them. A stuck mirror doesn't necessarily cause more serious problems, but that might damage the mirror, it could fracture of detach. Certain bodies due to their quality and design are less prone to this problem (like the 5DMII), and some are less robust (like the 6D). A possible solution for this issue might be using live view mode if available, this is possible only with those types that don't actually record with open mirror (like the 5DMII), but some newer EF cameras tend to release the mirror before exposure (like the 6D). The smaller mirror of the cameras with APS-C sensor doesn't interfere with the lens.
