Metabones Lens Adapter - EF to Micro Four Thirds (M43) T Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x

Product Description

Like the ULTRA series for Sony E-mount, the Speed Booster ULTRA M43 uses an advanced 5-element 4-group optical design incorporating ultra-high index tantalum-based optical glass.However, the design is specifically optimized for the Micro Four Thirds (M43) sensor & filter stack, & as a result achieves an astonishing level of performance that sets a new standard for focal reducers.

Like the revolutionary original Metabones Speed Booster® announced in January 2013, the Speed Booster ULTRA M43 has a magnification of 0.71x, & so it effectively reduces the crop factor of mirrorless Micro Four Thirds mount cameras from 2.0x to 1.4x.

Key Features:

  • Increase maximum aperture by 1 stop
  • Increase MTF of any lens attached
  • Makes lens 0.71x wider
  • Patented 5-element/4-group optical design incorporating ultra-high index tantalum-based optical glass by Caldwell Photographic in the USA
  • Supports 16:9 video with DX lenses
  • Smooth iris support with the latest Canon (2009+), Tamron (SP series 2013+) & Sigma (2016+) lenses
