Metabones should be releasing OM mount speed boosters soon - could tide you over until Fuji goes full frame.



I keep hoping that will happen... but I guess the adapters for the really popular mounts, like Alpa and Contarex, are a higher priority for them.

I'm hoping to see Metabones Speed Booster and Smart Adapter for EOS to Fujifilm X-mount.

A rumor?
Or some news somewhere?
I too would love to have such, as this would enable us to use our beloved focus via wire lens.
However, I have read two posts in FM Alt, that Metabones was not considering such...

If it's a rumour, maybe I just started it.

I sent them an email early this week to ask if they have any plans for this. I'll post a dedicated thread if they answer anything like or even close to 'yes'.

I suspect the only reason that they wouldn't is if Fujifilm won't "play ball". Metabones seems to have Canon and Sony locked up, just fine.

I emailed them about a month ago asking about OM-XF adapters, and never got a response.

Metabones sent me this in November, I asked about both XF and E mounts:

Yes! OM adapter and speed booster will launch around end of month.

Thank you!

Obviously it was delayed but I would still expect to see it soon.

I came home with a Yashica 21 f/3.5 and a C/Y mount Zeiss 85 f/1.4 today, now I just have to wait for my adapter to arrive.

A Oly 24/2.8 and a Zeiss 28/2.8 are challenging for the title of the WA in my 2-lens-kit. No time for real testing, but I have a feeling the Zeiss is going to win this one ( for me, I am a little sold to the Zeiss lenses if I have a choice )

The Zeiss 28/2.8 is better than the Oly 24/2.8. I've owned two of each. OTOH, they are different focal lengths; a bit.

Got a new lens. The Konica UC Hexanon 28mm F1.8 was a steal, I could not resist.
Next to it is a Konica Hexanon 57mm F1.2, which is also back at home since a short time.
I had it in the past, sold it, and always wanted it back.

Yes, great lens, but... not the same. The Contax 35/1.4 and 100/2 are both different enough that I would love to try them. In general I prefer to have a matched set of lenses, but one day, I will buy those two.


Yes the 100/2 is next on my list, or perhaps 135/2.

Is there a Contax 135/2 or do you mean the ZF?

There is a Contax 135/2.0 (I've had 2 of them over the years, still have one).

Interesting. I haven't heard of this lens before. Has anyone here tried it? How does it compare to the Contax 100/2 and the ZF 135/2?

Very sharp wide open at distance but less sharp wide open at close range.

Some Lateral CA/colour fringing wide open, goes away when stopped down a little, but only visible on high contrast subjects.

Very soft/smooth bokeh is arguably this lenses forte.
