Kipon Adapters For Nikon Z And Canon R

Kipon has announced it is has shipped its first batch of adapters for the new cameras.

A very extensive range too and the standout for me is the C/Y adapter for the Z as you will finally be able to use the Contax Zeiss lenses on a Nikon without the shenanigans involved with Leitax mods or the 1.4x optical correctors like the Fotodiox.

Interesting to see them talk of focal reducers on their way soon as well.

If one of them is an EF to R version then it will be a way of getting some of the full frame FOV back off Canon in 4K mode ;)

Mr Kipon is a nice guy. I met him at Photokina! The range of adapters they had there was incredible. The great thing about Kipon is that they had lots of more obscure mounts and combinations, there's some real photographic enthusiasm there and it's not all about quantity and $$.

Meanwhile, a bit concerned about Metabones. They've been very quiet on the release front. No EOS R Speed Booster from them? Would like to see more of those Caldwell Optics - superb!

Jesus F Christ, enough with the speedboosters for the R. Just wait for a full sensor read-out model.

Do guys absolutely hate DPAF and value bad RS as a "creative tool"?

Canon slaps you in the face with a severely compromised body and you bitch and moan about it. Then you turn your back and apply every band-aid and ointment to it that would somehow make it "the body that was promised". You should reward other OEMs instead aka take you business elsewhere.

Eh? A speed booster will be a full $3500 cheaper than Canon's hypothetical full sensor readout EOS R2 and probably 2 years earlier as well :)

You can wait and pay if you want. I'm ready for it NOW.
