    I was in Tempe Camera yesterday and theTamron rep was there and she let me play with the 15-30 on her Sony A7II with adapter. Looks pretty nice but if you want my opinion it's a 18 wheel truck. Not sure it's for me
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    Two more with the Zuiko 24/2.8 and the Metabones Speedbooster

    4: Green meadow


    5: Sheep and lambs


    Does anybody have experience with the Mitakon lens turbo's (same principle). They're somewhat lower cost, but if it's at the expense of IQ it might not be worth it.

    I have Mitakon on order and will post some samples after some trials. I don't believe it's currently available in OM mount but I wished it was. I also have the Olympus 24mm f2.8; it's a good one indeed.

    it is available in EF mount though. and Olympus OM adapts very easily to EF.

    For me I use my Olympus 24mm f2.8 via OM-EF dumb adapter on my Metabones EF to nex speedbooster

    Oly OM 35mm f2.0 @ 2.0 on speedbooster


    Canon 300mm f4L @ 4.0 on speedbooster


    Canon 16-35 f4L IS @ 4.0 on speedbooster

    Thanks, I would be interested in that. Since I already have a Metabones SB for OM I was thinking getting the Mitakon for my Minolta MC/MD lenses. But if it's a lot lower quality vs. the Metabones I might as well get the higher quality straight away (since that will happen anyway in case the Mitakon disappoints)

    I have Mitakon now in AI, PK and FD. All will disappoint due to sloppy construction. All of them rotate on NEX mount even after setting adapter to the locked position. The FD mount is particularly finicky when it comes to mounting. Optical quality seems to be pretty good but I can't live with the slop. I will likely return or sell and replace with Metabones.

    Thanks Paul, useful info. Maybe I'll test one out in a shop before buying since I'm most interested in good optical quality.

    @ pegelli

    The Metabones SB in OM mount was back ordered by B&H

    Recently I've been playing with Samyang 35mm 1.4 with Mitakon and A6000. Initial results look pretty good but it sure is one big chuck of glass on that tiny body. When I get some decent images I will post a few here.

    some 35mm zuiko shots using speed booster and the nex 5r of late

    hot pot on coals


    strawberries night stall



    cat in the shop window



    this lens excels for night photography, and produces descent bokeh.

    Re: Speed booster for NEX

    putting a 12 mm extension tube between the metabones speedbooster and the OM Zuiko 24/2.8 (@ f4.0) gives mushy corners and a great center sharpness:




    But without the extension tube it's a great little wide angle on my A6000:

    Re: Speed booster for NEX

    Good to know the effect of extension tubes on an "ultra wide" lens. I am guessing you also have a OM 50mm f3.5 which would mate well with the extension tube to give 1:1 closeups.
