The Canon FD Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Lens Turbo Adapter Mark II from Mitakon allows Canon FD lenses to be mounted on Sony E-Mount APS-C format cameras, increasing the angle of view by 0.726x and the maximum aperture of the lens by 1 f-stop.

The four optical elements of the Lens Turbo adapter condense light from the Canon FD full frame lens and project it onto the camera's APS-C sensor allowing the sensor to capture all of the lens' transmitted light, negating the 1.5x crop factor and effectively producing full-frame coverage on non-full-frame sensors. A corresponding increase in the maximum aperture of 1 f-stop makes the lens more effective in low-light situations.

The Mark II version of the Lens Turbo features an improved design to produce sharper images. Its rectangular rear lens rests closer to the camera's sensor improving light transmission and an enhanced lens coating minimizes ghosting and flare. One extra-low dispersion (ED) lens element reduces aberrations for better delineated images. The adapter offers a sturdy metal construction and stainless steel mounts, it attaches to both camera and lens with little play and includes a front and rear protective cap. The Lens Turbo is a manual adapter offering no electronic communication between lens and camera.

The Lens Turbo adapters are compatible with APS-C sized sensors. Although they will physically fit the Sony full frame mirrorless cameras, the camera must be set to Crop Mode to fully support the speed booster's functions.

    Canon FD Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Lens Turbo Adapter Mark II is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it claims I'm completely satisfied with the purchase. It does exactly what it claims. One thing to note is that when you put an FD lens on this adapter, make sure to align the red dot on your lens to the red dot on the adapter and then twist it to the yellow dot and then lock the lens on by twisting back. If you don't align it to the red dot first, you will not have the ability to change the aperture. It's all in the manual but I've seen a lot of comments online where people did not do this and then they automatically assume that the adapter doesn't work. It works, it's great. I love it for video and photo. No autofocus but I knew that when I bought it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Night vision I bought this adaptor to make my Sony Alpha 6000 a little more interesting. It is a little tricky to attach this to FD lenses, but once you get the hang of it the results are superb. I am using a 50mm f1.4 and a 15mm fisheye with the adaptor. The fisheye has a even exposure to the edges, something that surprised me. The 50mm is effectively working at f 1.0. I have no trouble focusing rapidly with focus peaking and the viewfinder is astounding to look through at night. I can see better through the camera than without it. Working shutter speeds and tack sharp images make this one of my favorite purchases to date. I also bought the Nikon F-mount version and am impresses with the optical properties of both adaptors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product The Mitakon adapter is a well constructed product. I have had a couple of months the test the adapter comparing it to a Canon T70 and a Sony A6000. The Canon lenses tested were as follows: 24mm F2.8, 50mm F3.5 Macro, 50mm F1.4, 55mm F1.2, 100mm F2.8, 200mm F2.8, and two Vivitar lenses, the 135mm F2.8, and 300mm F5.5. The focus at infinity was within a quarter of an inch before mechanical stop, except for the 50mm F1.4. It focused to infinity between the 10 and 15 foot marks on the distance scale. Light amplification; the only lens to gain a full F-stop was the 24mm F2.8, all others gained more than a half F-stop bur less then a full F-stop. Angle of View: All lenses lost between 1 and 3 degrees of angle of view, which was very good, nearly nullifying the 1.5 crop factor of the A6000. This adapter has revived all my old Canon FD mount manual focus lenses. The image quality is excellent, far less distortion then the Sony Kit lens and the CA with the old lens is gone, improving my post processing time. A good investment and I would recommend it to anyone with a collection of Canon lenses and a Sony A6000.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great budget focal reducer with a less than ideal build I bought this earlier in the semester probably around August/September so I have had quite a bit of experience with this. First and foremost I want to get to the main points: Pros: Does it's job: Squeezes as much of the image to cover APS-C. Moderately priced Great Optics Protects the sensor from dirt and dust Cons: Mount is not the best quality WARNING! Some close focusing lenses will cause glass to contact with the focal reducer. BUT DON'T LET THIS STOP YOU FROM BUYING! Read more info below. Okay, now that the points are done. It is a great budget focal reducer that does it's job well. The images are sharp from my best lenses, all nFDs: 135 F2 and the 50 1.4. Also a nice little bonus is the focal reducer actually prevents dirt and dust from touchiung your sensor. I'd say clean it or have a pro do it then the moment you get it back ir you are done, place the dust-free focal reducer on so you are free from cleaning your precious sensor. Some things to consider is the metal used in the mount and a big turnoff being the close glass of the lens mounting element. The mount itself is cheap metal and over time it will deform. This could be user error though as the mounting system is strange. Place the dot where the red dot is on the focal reducer then turn to the yellow dot. I tend to put a bit of force during the turning part so that could be my bad, but stay cautious when applying pressure. The biggie you MUST know is some lenses cannot be turned to infinity or else the glass of the lens mounting element may come in contact with the rear element of your lens. I have tested this on my nFD 50 1.4 where it cannot turn to about a micro-inch into the infinity symbol and most evident with my nFD 20 2.8 where it cannot turn beyond the midpoint of the 1m and 1.5m marker. Whatever you do DO NOT FORCE IT BEYOND THESE POINTS OF THESE LENSES and also note DO NOT MOUNT THE LENS WHEN THE MARKERS ARE TURNED BEYOND THESE NUMBERS. This is clearly stated in the manual and failure to do so may result in damage to the rear element of your lens, the front element of your focal reducer, or even the focusing mechanism. However, it DOES focus to infinity. It is a few markers before the actual infinity with virtually all my lenses. Again, if you really need a focal reducer for your FD lenses on a budget, this is a great buy. Just follow heed of my warnings: Do not force down the lens as you turn from the red to the yellow dot or it may increase the wear. I have confirmed that lightly applying a small ammount of force is sufficinent but doing it too lightly may not engage aperture. In this case, just try again. And most importantly to protect your lens is know your limits of close focusing rear elements of some lenses. A good way to know what your danger zone is to start from infinity before you mount. Then after you mount, slowly turn to infinity until you feel resistance. The nanosecond you know, STOP. If you own a nFD 50mm 1.4, the danger zone is a micro inch before the center of the infinity sign. For the nFD 20 2.8, it is between the 1m and 1.5m marker. Happy shooting!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from My copy had mounting issues with a6500 and a6300 According to the instructions the adapter is set to open and attached to the body using the alignment marker.� Then turn the breech mount ring to lock.� My copy could not reach the lock position, only turned about 10 degrees.� As such any slight twist of the adapter breech ring would release the adapter from the camera body.� Measurements of the mechanical interface showed why this was the case, differences in flange to mating surface was less than those of the Sony lens, which resulted in binding when mounting was attempted.� The flange itself was thin compared to the Sony lens which indicates improper production.� Also the adapter rear optics does protrude into the camera this combined with dimensional issues may have resulted in mounting issues, if forced may have resulted in damage to the camera.� For this reason I returned the adapter back to B&H.� The professional B&H support team issued an RMA number in a timely manor and the device was sent back to B&H for a refund.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from cleans your breath, shines your shoes! This device gives new life to all my old Canon FD lenses, making them work on my Sony E-mount camera. AND, not only do I get the full benefit of no-crop-factor focal length (which is to say that my 17mm lens is still a very wide angle instead effectively 26mm), I GAIN a full stop of additional light on the sensor, so it goes from being an f4 to an f2.8! Importantly, it does all this without giving up image quality. What's not to like?

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Cheap Alternative No glaringly obvious image quality issues. Works just as expected. Mounting system is weird though. But it is a great deal cheaper than Metabones, so I guess quirks are to be expected.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for FS-7 Don't try to use this on an FS7. The rear of the adapter protrudes too much and will not fit the camera without contacting the camera sensor. Bummer. Great concept.
