So, I can now join this thread. Received my FD to Fuji X SpeedBooster today. So far, I quite like it. It's not perfect, but it's far better than the LensTurbo with wide aperture lenses, and works quite well with my 50/1.4, 85/1.8, 135/2 and 70-210. Will try it with my 200/2.8 and 50-300/4.5L a little later. The 135/2 and 200/2.8 make a little less sense to adapt, though, since I have a Rokinon 85/1.4 (similar DOF, smaller and a little better on the edges than the 135/2+SB, and for the 200/2.8, I might as well use the 135/2 straight. )
My Vivitar 28 is terrible on it, but I'm not sure whether that's because the Vivitar 28 is terrible or because it doesn't work well with the SB...it's my dad's old lens from his A-E1 kit he gave me a while back.
Some samples. I was trying to see whether the nFD 50/1.4 or the FD 50/1.4 SSC worked better on the SB, and frankly, they both perform almost identically, though the new FD has smoother bokeh and actually a little more blur (which is odd...especially considering the SSC has the larger front element...so the SSC will go back to the store).
