  • If it's the same quality as Metabones, they'll just have to make a Nikon F to MFT version and I'm in.

  • Make Minolta adapter, please!

  • @Flaaandeeers

    Check the source links, as far as I remember they had photo of MC one.

  • Excelent news Vitaliy, let's hope they get into m43 quick ;)

  • And first showing is PK! :-)

  • Looks good - I really do hope they make a Nikon to MFT version with mechanical IRIS CONTROL (like the Novoflex adaptor), this would be the Tokina 11-16 f2.8 winner combination!

  • Are these Chinese manufacturer dumb or what. They have a whole market clamoring for M43 market adapter and they chose to do the same as metabones. Where they will face competition from a much more recognized brand even if it is more expensive. A Psyco said, a Nikon to M43 mount with iris control would be an instant hit with the m43 and Blackmagic cinema crowd.

  • actually this is japanese, notice the characters on the box in the first pic.

  • Or maybe not (letters) but I have a mitakon lens that is made in japan.

  • That's Chinese, not Japanese.

  • Yes, sorry.

  • Fantastic news! When can we expect? Nikon to MFT would be awesome.

  • I saw a FD version in that forum, but just for NEX. Curious to see the quality with the lenses wide open in center and corner, final price and availability. M43 also, when?

  • It looks very orange. Since I like orange, I will buy one.

  • "Teal and Orange Look" is fashion these days... see:

    VK may like it also, he is showing a carrot addiction in last posts...

    I am trying to find a relationship between pink and orange...

    It seems orange and pink are red's neighbors... If red is love or if red is angry, or shy or so on, pink and orange is when you are going out of these emotions, for opposite directions... but orange is more close to red than pink...

    Obs.: sorry about off topic talks... I am going so deep into color study last days...

  • Now we just need KineRaw to come out with a Personal KineMa Camera for $400 :)

  • @jleo

    I am quite sure that we'll see cheap ProRes-like formats cameras and raw cinema cameras much sooner than people expect. Under cheap here I mean GF and G cameras prices range.

  • always the problem of exposure and stabilization without electronics

  • First cheap speed booster adapters are widely available now

  • Any words on M43 plans?

  • @Vitaliy it would be nice if they have a Nikon to M43 adapter with aperture control. It would sell a lot as it would be the ideal adapter for the Tokina 11-16 for the M43 panasonic camera and the Blackmagic pocket camera. I also hope we get some review soon about the optical performance and build quality as well. My m43 to nikon adapter wooble a bit. For a $30 adpater I can live with that, for a $ 200 adapter it will make me think 10 times before buying.

  • does anyone know if we buy a m43-to-m43 speedbooster, can we still use adapters to FD,MD,etc. on it?

  • There's no such thing as a M43-to-M43 speed booster. It's impossible.

  • well, is it? I thought with the right lens combination you can make up for the distance difference, cant you?
