Mitakon Zhongyi MTKTLM2FD2SE Overview

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.

Did not fit

By Joshua
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2019-10-29

It had potential but in the end, was a fraction of a millimeter off or not machined correctly causing it to not lock into place and was completely unusable. From the other reviews seems like a bit of a gamble purchasing this item on whether it'll work or not.

Great deal!

System: Sony A6300 > Lens Turbo II to FD > FD > M42 Adapter Fitment: My only complaint about the fit and finish is that the fitment on the e-mount side is super snug and it's quite a task to turn the ring from "open" to "lock" ... at least on my unit.� I'd much rather it be tighter than loose.� I'm sure it will loosen a tad over time so it's really no big deal. As far as focal reduction goes, it does what's advertised. It doesn't quite get you a full stop of light though.� On average, I'm seeing a 0.7 stop increase. Some lenses won't fit if the rear element protrudes too far, as it may hit the front element of the LTII.� Also, some lenses won't focus to infinity, and that chance may increase if you're stacking adapters.� Here are the lenses I have that work: Canon FDn 28mm f2.8 Helios 44-2 58mm f2.0 (no infinity) Asahi Pentax Takumar SMC 50mm f1.4 (no infinity) All in all, it's an amazing value and I don't think the Metabones is worth the extra money, as you'd run into the same focus to infinity issues and rear element protrusion issues.

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.

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.

Fits camera, not lenses

This adapter fits my Sony a3000, but mounts differently than most e-mount lenses so make sure you read the instructions first.� My Canon 50mm f1.8 lens with turning ring (see photo) would not mount on the adapter at all.� Optically, the adapter is good, so a good choice if it fits your lenses.

I normally adapt my old Canon FD lenses with a normal adapter until I give this adapter a try and boy I was impressed by this lens turbo. By gaining a stop of light and nearly eliminating the crop factor it already made my old FD lenses even better. More creamier bokeh, wider FOV, faster shutter speeds and reduced adapter size. This speedbooster works miracles perhaps! I use it with my nFD 50mm f1.4 and that lens is now even better than before. Some others reported that the adapter won't mount or allow the lens to stop down presumably due to sample variation of the adapter or user error. I can focus to infinity without the rear element hitting the speedbooster. Talking about glass elements, the turbo element sticks out so much that I can see why some lenses won't allow infinity focus before colliding with that glass because that piece is huge. My Canon FL 50mm Macro didn't even mount not due to glass but the rear part of the lens body opening was too narrow so it didn't fit onto the turbo fully. Pretty much that's the only complaint but the images I get out of this thing is phenomenal. Next thing I'll want to try is sticking an f1.2 lens in front of this turbo then I'll be going super fast.

An halfway solution with quality control issues : 2 1/2

The 1st adapter did not mount on the camera body, and would not mount any FD lens (breech mount, silver locking ring FD lens, or bayonet, nFD lens). The 2nd adapter received (thanks B&H) mounts perfectly on the camera body and mounts all nFD lenses, and does not mount properly my sample of breech lock FD lenses: the locking ring turns very little (not safe), and the lens will stop down only 4 clicks (2 f-stops) of the aperture ring. The adapter does not focus at infinity: when any lens is set at infinity, nothing is really sharp, even stopped down at f/8. Apart from all of these limitations, an nFD lens focussed closer than infinity will yield adequate to good pictures.� A word of caution: even the slightest protrusion of the rear lens element will cause physical contact between this element and the front lens of the adapter. For instance, the nFD 20mm f/2.8 protrudes by a nothingth of an inch, and lens and adapter come in contact close or at infinity focus. Follow the manufacturer’s instruction to test for physical contact if in doubt.

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.

How do the images produced by FD lenses with this adaptor compare to images produced by FD lenses on Canon film cameras?
Asked by: Roger F.
There is no comparison I am aware of that has been made. This adapter has optics, adding optics to any lens will not make it better. So the most you will get is it will be the same but chances are it will loose some sharpness.

Hi, does this adapter compatible the FD lenses work with the Sony PXW-FS7 & Sony NEX-FS700 video camera?
Asked by: On Lim W.
This adapter does NOT fit the FS7. The rectangular bung on the edge of the mating surface causes interference, the adapter will not flush up to the camera body.

I have an a6300 and the FD lenses fit the Zhongyi Adapter fine but I can't get it to fit the a6300 body. Has anyone had this problem? is there something I'm missing or a setting I need? It basically won't thread onto body because the fittings are too shallow
Asked by: Joshua
There are many who have difficulty with this adapter. We suggest following the instructions regarding the correct procedure in mounting the lens. If still does not work, we then suggest contacting B&H Customer Service for a exchange or refund before 30 days is over.

if i plan to use other mounts, especially FD mount, can i use m42-FD adapters with this? Thanks
Asked by: Narudh A.
While this adapter does take the Canon FD mount, there have been no tests confirming that an M42- Canon FD adapter can work on this successfully. Your results may vary.

I have a collection of Canon FD lenses. Will this adapter fit the Sony A6000 camera and allow me to use all of my Canon lenses with the camera? I have a Canon 20mm, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, etc, lenses.
Asked by: David W.
Most FD glass will work with this adapter, but follow the included instruction so you don't damage the camera or lens. Some FL glass will work, it seems to be about 1 out of 3, the lever pin seems to be to long on some and the infinite setting may not be able to be reached on others. It's great on glass that will work.

I'm trying to get this to work with my Canon FL55 f/1.2 lens. The Zhongyi site says it will work but I can't it to connect. Am I missing something?
Asked by: Travis D.
Hi. Did you check that the zhongyi adapter is for FL Canon Lenses? Canon has several mount types, and i am guessing here but, are the most poppular/new the E may be? what i mean is that my be you have a Canon Lens adapter, but just not the correct mount type. I have a Zhongyi lens adapter, but for Pentax, and the difference is that pentax has the same mount from the 70s (or even before), so i did have this problem.The other issue is that may be you can mount the lens, but what you mean is that the auto-focus is not working. In this case this will never work, because this adapter is for manual focus use only. Even if you lens has an auto focus, the adapter has no chips or electric connection so the lens and the camera can communicate. That is why i guess you have a different mount in the Canon mount.Hope helps you.

Does anyone actually use this adapter with Canon 50mm f1.4 FD lens? On some other brands, it specifically stated it won't fit any FD lens with the rear lens protrude far outside of the lens body as it will interfere with the lens inside the adapter.
Asked by: Phil H.
I've used it almost exclusively with the FD 50 f1.4 and it works great. I have the newer FD (the smaller FDn, not the S.C.C. version), so it for sure fits that version.
