Ever since it was announced a few months ago, the Metabones Speed Booster Adapter has been creating quite a buzz, and now micro 4/3 users are licking their chops, because the M43 version is due out in April.
According to 43Rumors…
Metabones will launch the new Speed Booster adapter for MFT in April and not in March as previously reported. There’s still no definitive word on which lenses will supported, but “I have been told the adapters will be manually only (no electronic support). Price may be around $399 (still no final decision yet).”
Officially the Nikon, Leica R, Contax C/Y, Contarex, ALPA and Rollei lenses are on roadmap, plus an OM lens adapter may come too.
My 2 Cents
If this thing lives up to it’s billing, you’ll be able to adapt your legacy glass to your M43 camera and make them wider and a full stop brighter at the same time… BOO-YAH!
