Shenyang Zhongyi Optics have released the Canon EF-Fuji X Lens turbo adapter. This adapter allows full-frame Canon EF lenses to be mounted on Fuji’s X series interchangeable-lens cameras while altering their magnification by a factor of 0.762x and improving their aperture speed by a full stop.
The reduced magnification enables users to partially regain the angle of view lost by mounting a full-frame lens on a camera with an APS-C sized sensor. In other words, the Zhongyi EF-Fuji X Lens Turbo Adapter effectively reduces the crop factor of Fujifilm X series compact system cameras from 1.5x to 1.14x.
The optical construction comprises 4 lens elements in 4 groups, including 1 extra-low dispersion element. The price for the adapter is $149.
