Thats not right... The lens which goes 1:1 on full frame will go 1:1 (same magnification ratio) on APS-xx format. APS-C cameras are nothing but the smaller sensor cameras compare to full frame... hence your capture area decreases, not the magnification.



You're right, and I didn't put that very well. It's an illusion of creating greater magnification in relation to the lens on all FF sensor via crop. But yes, with a 1:1 lens at MFD focused on a subject 36mm in length, only 23.6mm of the subject will be captured in the frame on an APS-C, which is still 1:1.

my chinese one is on the way, i'm expecting it next week. I bought the Nikon AI - NEX one days before the FD was available. If i like it, I'll probably get an FD one as well for more flexibility, and maybe sell the AI.

Me too. There isn't even a C/Y to Fuji X speed booster yet as far as I'm aware.

For those that are leery of eBay for any reason, you can get the Mitakon/ZY Optical Lens Turbo from mxcamera.

Hello.

I just got the Lens Turbo today. 13th May ordered item.

I tried to set these lenses,
Ai AF Nikkor 18mm f2.8D,
Ai Nikkor 24mm f2.8S,
Ai Nikkor 50mm f1.4S,
Ai Micro Nikkor 55mm f2.8S,
Nikkor Auto-S.C. 55mm f1.2 ( Ai-S modified).

They are all OK to fit on Lens Turbo without conflict between lens mechanics and internal area ore lens of Lens Turbo.

I posted the comparison images with/without Lens Turbo of Ai Nikkor 50mm f1.4S.

If it is usefull info for you, I am happy.

Where did you get your Lens Turbo from? Seems to have arrived quick. There are loads of them on Ebay for sale now. To find just search focal reducer, order by newly listed and select worldwide. MD/FD mounts now available. Is there a way to adjust the Lens turbo versions for infinity like you can on the metabones version?

I ordered on MXcamera web site, not on eBay. The item has shipped from HongKong to Japan by trucking airmail, so it may be relatively quick. It looks same way to adjust the position of internal lens by screw as Metabones Speed booster. The adapter that I got has been adjusted infinity. It can be seen that the adjusted position has been marked by pen.

I found that Ai Nikkor 20mm/F2.8S also fit on Lens Turbo without a scratch.

So what's the verdict? Are u happy with the lens turbo vs. the metabones? Big price difference. I hardly think autofocus is a feature worth $400 considering how slow it is.

Lens Turbo images with Ai Nikkor 20mm/F2.8S.
The distortion and blur can be seen. It might be caused from Lens Turbo.

The pictures are uploaded here.

wow, those pictures are quite telling.
I've got one on the way that I plan on using with three Nikkors- 35/2, 50/1.4, and 85/2, all AIS. Hopefully the effect won't be as extreme as some of your shots with the 20mm.

Just checked the tracking on my Lens Turbo. Passed through Chicago on Friday the 17th, USPS. I'm thinking/hoping it'll be in my box today or tomorrow.

Lens Turbo images with Ai Micro Nikkor 55mm/F2.8S

The lens has a guard structure on rear lens unit, however it does not conflict Lens Turbo.
Slight barrel distortion can be seen, however this reducer adapter will be quite useful for macro photography.

Am I on the wrong website here?
MX Camera

Mitakon

Also, I emailed mitakon directly and they got back to me stating that an FD to fuji X adapter should be available in about a month.

No, MXCamera appears to be about the easiest way to order right now, at least besides eBay.

USPS site is showing mine delivered. Ebay tracking is still showing the last update prior to that.... I'll find out in about 20 minutes- this is killing me.
