Cheap UK focal reducer (Camdiox) - No infinity focus?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I received this today,  branded "Camdiox" (linked here). It's a £72 Nikon F/G to Micro Four Thirds focal reducer / lens turbo / speed booster.

 

At first, I thought all was well. But as I played around more I found that my lenses weren't focusing to infinity. The lenses in question - a new Sigma 18-35mm f1.8 and an old Tokina 80-200mm D f2.8. Both have great renderings but failed to focus to infinity.

 

Has anyone else had similar experiences with cheap focal reducers?

I have a RJ lens turbo and it shifts my infinity focus a bit. I have to dial back to 10m instead of infinity sign to be able to focus on infinity. However, that adapter has focus adjustment. Look here. I haven't changed it yet as I wanted to try other lenses first.

Hi Inazuma, can you give us your impressions of the Camdiox product please? It's good to know we now have some home grown reducers in the UK but it would be good to know the quality of it, could you upload any images taken through it, or can you compare it with a Metabones (which seems to be the "standard") Thanks :)

Hope it helps :)
