Metabones Speedbooster (Canon EOS – MFT)

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Metabones Speedbooster Ultrax0.71 (Canon EOS – MFT Mount)
The new Speed Booster ULTRA m43 uses an advanced 5-element 4-group optical design incorporating ultra-high index tantalum-based optical glass.  However, the new design is specifically optimized for the Micro Four Thirds sensor and filter stack, and as a result achieves an astonishing level of performance that sets a new standard for focal reducers.

SPECIFICATIONS

Other 
• Detachable tripod foot compatible with Arca Swiss, Markins and Photo Clam ball heads

• EF-S lenses require modification to fit (but third party DX lenses can be used without modification)
• No autofocus support for JVC and Olympus
• AFC (continuous AF) and AFF (flexible AF) modes are not supported

• Video AF may hunt more than a native lens
