    Speed Booster gets Speedier!

    Speed madness: New Metabones Speed Boosters announced makes you shoot at f/0.74 aperture! | 43 Rumors

    f/1.2 to f/0.74!

    I don't know why everyone is fiddling around with a softy like the 50/1.2 Nikkor. I guess they are yet to discover the Olympus OM 50/1.2.

    Yeah, it needs a camera with no mechanical shutter so that the rear elements can be positioned close to the sensor. Besides, it needs a smaller sensor than the regular m43rds. Coverage is tiny.

    It will be interesting to see how they compare with Fujinon-TV 25/0.85 and Fujinon-TV 50/0.7 lenses.
