Allowing you to mount a Canon FD lens on a Micro Four Thirds camera body, this Lens Turbo Adapter Mark II from Mitakon Zhongyi is a manual adapter that maintains infinity focus and image quality, and well as increases the maximum aperture and angle of view. Four elements are featured in the adapter's design, including one extra-low dispersion element, which helps to deliver a well-corrected image with edge-to-edge sharpness and illumination. This optical design also condenses the light reaching the sensor in order to gain one effective stop of light and increase the angle of view by 0.726x to somewhat lessen the crop factor of Micro Four Thirds cameras.

In addition to the optical design, this adapter features a durable metal housing along with stainless steel mounts for secure lens-to-adapter and adapter-to-camera connections. As a manual adapter, electronic communication, including aperture control and autofocus, is not supported between the camera and lens.

Permits mounting Canon FD lenses on Micro Four Thirds mirrorless cameras.
Four elements in four groups design, including one extra-low dispersion element, maintains sharpness and clarity from edge-to-edge.
Optical design condenses the light reaching the sensor to effectively gain one f/stop of light and increase the angle of view by 0.726x.

    Canon FD Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera Lens Turbo Adapter Mark II is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good except... I have been using this focal reducer for a while now and although it does a number of really great things, I have had trouble using it in some circumstances, which can occasionally ruin good shots. The increased focal length is very helpful when I use my FD 24mm f2.8 and 35mm f2. Wides are pretty hard to get without native m43 lenses so it is nice to adapt these older ones if you like versatility in your lenses like I do. This focal reducer does increase sharpness in every lens I have used. The extra stop of light is very helpful when trying to get video in low light situations. The big problem with this adapter is something with the coating. Any flaring or ghosting is greatly increased when using this thing and any contrasting colors on the edge of the lens will sometimes create a hotspot that eats up a pretty good area of your shot, mostly when using the nfd 50mm f1.4, and since this is the most widely used of the FD's, I find this very disappointing. I have had what would have been portraits rendered unusable because of this. The problem usually occurs on the edges. I want to love it, but I can't because of the flaring and ghosting problems. If I had to do over, I would buy the Metabones instead.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flaring I have the C/Y to NEX adapter that I use on my Sony a6000. If I were to write a review it would read exactly like Dune00z's review above as I have had the same experience with the adapter as s/he did. Sometimes it seemed to work great but if you get sun in your lens you get red spots and flaring that ruin the image. It is really unfortunate and I hope the company finds a fix for that problem-then I would buy more adapters. But for now I would go with the Metabones model even though the price is substantially more.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Killer Quality and Value! I've been on the fence between the Metabones and Lens Turbo II for a while now before finally deciding to give the drastically cheaper LT II a try first. So far, I'm incredibly impressed with what this is doing for my GH4 and FD lenses. Sharpness and low light performance have both increased notably. The extra width is going to be incredibly helpful when running and gunning indoors. It has essentially addressed all of my qualms with the GH4 and has made the camera much more enjoyable to shoot with. For the people complaining about lack of aperture control... you're mounting your lenses incorrectly. I too thought my LT II was defective after spending an hour trying to gain aperture control. Line up the red dot on the lens with the red dot on the LT II, press the two together and then turn the lens counter clockwise all the way to the green dot on the LT II. Now turn the lens clockwise until it locks into place. Congratulations, you have aperture control! The other common complaint with the LT II seems to be flare and ghosting issues. Here's my two cents on this. This adapter is used to mount vintage lenses which are already super susceptible to flare and ghosting issues in direct sunlight. It's ridiculous to expect the addition of extra glass to somehow mitigate these issues which are inherent of the lenses being used. I've found shooting with a lens hood to clear up the majority of the issues I've had with flare or ghosting. The Lens Turbo II hasn't made matters much worse than they were before in my opinion. To summarize, this adapter works as advertised and really improves a lot of the inherent shortcomings of m43 cameras and adapting vintage glass to them. The price is right and the quality is excellent. I'm no longer interested in trying out the Metabones unit and believe I'll be sticking with my Lens Turbo II for a long time to come.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not perfect I'm using this adapter with classic Canon New FD 28mm f/2, 50mm f/1.4, & 35-105mm f/3.5-4.5 lenses on Panasonic GH2 & GX85 bodies. Build quality is good; both lens-side & body-side mounts are secure with no wiggle; lenses focus properly to infinity. Image quality is good enough, though since I usually use these lenses wide open their limitations (soft corners, mild vignetting, mild chromatic aberration) may be masking this adapter's faults. I have just a few caveats: 1) It's a bit tricky to mount the lens properly to the adapter so the manual iris ring works correctly, so if you need to swap lenses quickly you're better off having an adapter permanently mated to each lens (no problem mounting the lens-plus-adapter to the body quickly). 2) I've carefully measured this adapter's exposure gain with all 3 lenses & it's a bit over a half-stop but definitely not a full stop. 3) My Panasonic camera bodies are programmed to compensate for optical flaws in Panasonic native M43 lenses but not with adapted lenses which thus look more flawed. Long story short: this product does what I need it to do at a fair price; would buy again.
