Metabones MBSPPL-M43-BT1 overview

  • 1Description

Boost the performance of your PL-mount lenses when mounted to your Micro Four Thirds camera with the Speed Booster Ultra 0.71x Adapter from Metabones. This adapter uses specialized optics to reduce the effects of crop factor on mirrorless cameras, offering a magnification of 0.71x to make the lens wider. It also simultaneously increases the maximum aperture by about 1 stop, all while adding essentially zero spherical aberration and distortion to help preserve the quality of your image.

Precision-crafted from brass and given chromium plating, the adapter is designed for daily use and guarantees infinity focus. This model has a flocked interior that will limit flaring and ghosting from reflections inside the adapter, and a satin exterior finish matches most cameras for a unified appearance. Additionally, it has a detachable Arca-type compatible tripod foot for simple mounting to a variety of tripods.

    Metabones MBSPPL-M43-BT1 reviews

    Speed Booster Ultra 0.71x Adapter for PL Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from The mount surface to the optical element is around <=15.7mm I purchased the�Metabones Speed Booster Ultra 0.71x Adapter for PL Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera. I wanted�to put Schneider Xenar III S35 PL mount prime lenses on a Panasonic GH5. Unfortunately, I could not find any data on compatibility. I did not even find this adapter on the Metabones website.� I should have simply emailed before purchasing, but I had no idea there could be a compatibility issue with a PL mount lens to this adapter. I wrongly assumed there were "standard" PL mount dimensions which applied to all lens manufacturers.� When I had problems and reached out to metabones, they quickly responded with the following helpful information: **************************** �...please beware the Metabones PL to E SpeedBooster and PL to M43 SpeedBooster are mainly designed for CP.2 and CP.3 lenses. The depth from the mount surface to the optical element is around <=15.7mm, you can measure if the depth is enough to attach your lenses. If the rear element of your lens�exceeds the limitation, you could�consider to go for the non-Speedbooter version.� Metabones PL T CINE Speed Booster TM�adapters are designed exclusively for the Zeiss CP.2 and CZ.2 lenses. Important Notes : Do not attempt to mount the lenses not under the Lens Comparability List to adapter - physical damage may occur. Lens Compatibility List ZEISS Compact Prime lenses CP.2 15 mm / T2.9 CP.2 21 mm / T2.9 CP.2 25 mm / T2.1 CP.2 28 mm / T2.1 CP.2 35 mm / T1.5 CP.2 35 mm / T2.1 CP.2 50 mm / T1.5 CP.2 50 mm / T2.1 CP.2 50 mm / T2.1 CP.2 85 mm / T1.5 CP.2 85 mm / T2.1 CP.2 100 mm / T2.1 CP.2 135 mm / T2.1 ZEISS Cinema Zoom lenses CZ.2�15 – 30 mm / T2.9 CZ.2�28 – 80 mm / T2.9 CZ.2�70 – 200 mm / T2.9 ************************************* So I called Schneider tech support (they are always really nice and helpful by the way) and they measured the Xenar III PL mount for me (The lens set dimensions all match).�The mount surface to the tip of the rear optical element housing is 18.25 mm. So, they are too long. I gave 3 stars because I think Metabones (and other lens manufacturers) should try much harder to make this critical information available on ALL of their lenses/adapters so we don't have to guess or wonder or return products or, worse yet, get stuck with "non-returnable items" thru no fault of our own. Of course, if it is possible to make another more "universal" version with more a few more mm between the mount surface and the tip of the optical element housing, the product would be a PERFECT solution for accumulating more light from Pro and Midrange quality S35 lenses on cameras like the GH5, and even more spectacularly, the GH5s. For example: Zeiss LWZ 21 mm to 100 mm, or the Angenieux EZ1 and EZ2 which already have speedboosters built in (Well, then, that would be more, wouldn't it?). If I am completely confused about something or everything, somebody correct me; I am just offering a non-expert opinion based on my best effort to understand how to potentially maximize the value of expensive Super 35 PL mount glass on MFT cameras. "Always do your own research...", right? I guess I will have to return the adapter.
