Shenyang Zhongyi Optics has released the second version of its M42 -Fuji X Lens turbo adapter.
This adapter allows M42 screw mount lenses to be mounted on Fuji X 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 M42 -Fuji X Lens turbo adapter (ver II) 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 which helps reduce the chromatic aberrations on the image. The adapter has a price tag for $149 and available from their website.
