New Zhongyi Lens Turbo Adapters for Micro Four Thirds Cameras

Zhongyi Optics has released three new Lens turbo adapters for Micro Four Thirds cameras.

The new adapters allow full-frame lenses with an M42 screw mount, Canon FD mount or a Minolta MD mount to be used on Micro Four Thirds cameras with a wider angle of view and faster aperture than with a regular adapter.

Just like the previous Zhongyi Lens Turbo (ver II), the new MFT turbo adapter features an optical formula comprising 4 lens elements in 4 groups, including 1 extra-low dispersion element which helps reduce chromatic aberrations. The adapter modifies the FourThirds focal length multiplier of 2 by a factor of 0.726 and improves the maximum aperture of the lens by 1 stop.

All three adapters are available directly from ZY Optics for $149 USD.
