The Nikon G Lens to Blackmagic 2.5k Cinema Camera with Micro-4/3 Mount Speed Booster from Metabones allows a Nikon G lens to be mounted to a 2.5k Cinema Camera and in doing so, increases the angle of view and the maximum aperture.

The Speed Booster uses 6-element optical design that incorporates ultra-high index glass to achieve ideal optical performance at the largest apertures. It increases the maximum aperture by 1 1/3 stops with a maximum aperture of f/0.8, and reduces the crop factor from 2.39x to 1.53x.

The Speed Booster not only increases the field of view and lens speed, it also increases the lens' MTF, or how faithfully the lens transfers detail from the object to the camera sensor. These increases in MTF are seen in the corners as well as the center of the images.

Built into the Speed Booster is a clickless aperture ring, a must-have feature for cinematographers, as well as a removable Arca-type compatible tripod mount.

Note: Not compatible with the Blackmagic Pocket Camera.

        Expand lens options and get an extra stop of light. Good optics and well made. I use it w GH4 which is off-label use, but gives less crop and more speed than the metabones Nikon/MFT speedbooster. Must set camera to "electronic shutter" to use.

        Comments about Metabones Nikon G Lens to Blackmagic 2.5k Cinema Camera with Micro-4/3 Mount Speed Booster:

        The Metabones Speed Booster is a must have for the BLACK MAGIC 2.5K and the pocket camera with the Micro-4/3 mount. The optics are framed closer and the aperture is better for light. This Metabones adapter gives me the ability to use Nikon mount lenses that are non-manual which is a huge plus! It is a crucial part of my BMC 2.5k rig.

          Comments about Metabones Nikon G Lens to Blackmagic 2.5k Cinema Camera with Micro-4/3 Mount Speed Booster:

          I use this with Nikkor AIS lenses on my BMCC 2.5K. Solidly built, high quality glass, easy to use and does what it says. Just remember the lens conversion. This will not make your 28mm FX lens a 28mm. You'll need a DX lens for that. For my wide shots I use a Sigma 18-125mm DX kit lens. For what it does the Metabones Nikon to 2.5K Speed booster is worth the price.

            Comments about Metabones Nikon G Lens to Blackmagic 2.5k Cinema Camera with Micro-4/3 Mount Speed Booster:

            The crop factor of the BMCC could be a deal breaker, if not for this adapter. I use it with the Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8, to get a Super-35 equivalent field of view. YES, 18mm is wide, and zooming in this range creates a very nice "standard" view. That's not even the best part, though. Wide open, this adapter turns the f/1.8 lens into something like f/1.2. Solid build. Smooth aperture.
            The only difficulty in using the adapter's aperture ring is the markings, which are labeled from F to 1 through to 7. You have to know your lens' stops to know what you're truly shooting at.

              Comments about Metabones Nikon G Lens to Blackmagic 2.5k Cinema Camera with Micro-4/3 Mount Speed Booster:

              I was planning on getting rid of my BMCC and then this came out. Being able to shoot wider, faster, and sharper than before is a real game changer for BMCC. Having this mount makes me feel like I was missing out on owning a completely useable camera.
              Mounts very snug like it is a part of the camera, which is where I leave it always. Smooth aperture ring that works with non manual aperture lenses.
              FANTASTIC!
