Metabones earlier this year released its Mark IV version of the Lens Mount Adapter.
These adapters allow you to use your Canon or Nikon lenses on your Sony E mount bodies with full aperture control.
The previous Mark III version of the adapter had a lot of problems with many Canon lenses. The new adapter has many new improvements to consider and a lot of new lenses added to its compatibility list.

Note To Buyers
I've had a lot of problems with my Metabones Mark III adapter since the day I got it. Random power offs and lens compatibility issues. Hopefully this new version addresses all these problems and I've heard a few photographers already praise the new performance.
Although the adapter does have a 1 year warranty, you have to ship it to Hong Kong for service. From California that costs $35 dollars to ship it there and $35 to ship it back. So to get it serviced it will cost you $70 dollars. Not really worth it on an adapter with a $300-$400 dollar price tag.
When you get your adapter make sure it's absolutely perfect before your 30 day Amazon return policy expires. That was the mistake I made. I started shooting a web series with my camera immediately, then went out of town for a week knowing my adapter was having problems. Don't make this mistake.
