I've just picked up a new Sony A5100 (for US$330, a great Black Friday deal!) and want to use my Nikon F mount lenses on it. What is the best Metabones focal reducer clone for Nikon G to Sony E mount? Is it the Mitakon Lens Turbo II? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mitakon-Lens-Turbo-Focal-II-Reducer-Adapter-Nikon-F-ai-s-Sony-NEX-VG-camera-/171320696417 Or would the much cheaper jinfinance be just as good? http://www.ebay.com/itm/new-Nikon-F-G-focal-reducer-speed-booster-adapter-to-Sony-NEX-5-6-7-FS700-FS100-/360707999952
I bought a Chinese Focal Reducer on eBay for $96. Shipped here to U.S. in one week. Tried it with with a Nikon 24mm 2.8D. Unfortunately, the focal reducer does not "lock" into the BMPCC, just turns enough to stay on gingerly. Mounts onto a Panasonic GF3 fine. Wrote the seller, waiting for response. UPDATE: see below, it can be fixed. You would need a dremel, some flat sanding disks. Naturally, would be best if you get one that works perfectly. HOW IF FIXED IT HERE :http://maxotics.com/?p=296 Upshot BEFORE YOU BUY ANY FOCAL REDUCER ASK IF IT SPECIFICALLY MOUNTS ONTO YOUR CAMERA. Optically, it seems good. Here are some DNGs. I started with f4 because that was what Andy wanted :) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/13097257/FocalReducer.zip Here's some rough footage. I show how the adapter doesn't mount onto camera at end.
