Metabones Nikon G Speed Booster revealed for Micro Four Thirds and NEX cameras

Metabones has launched a new Speed Booster which brings Nikon G-type lens support to Micro Four Thirds and Sony NEX mounts.

Metabones is a company which specializes in manufacturing high-quality lens adapters. Its Speed Booster has been announced earlier this year for mirrorless cameras, allowing users to mount SLR lenses on other cameras.

Metabones introduces Nikon G lens adapter for NEX and Micro Four Thirds mounts

The initial version has been launched with Canon EF support, but the company is back with support for Nikon G lenses. Although it may sound unbelievable, the new Metabones Speed Booster will actually allow photographers to mount such optics on their Micro Four Thirds and NEX shooters.

The Metabones Nikon G Speed Booster is still a lens adapter, which is aimed at widening the lens by 0.71x. Decreasing the focal length of the lens is just one of the advantages as the adapter as is also increasing the maximum aperture with one f-stop.

The new Metabones Speed Booster will also allow Micro Four Thirds camera users to mount Nikon G lenses on their shooters. Features and price are identical, such as 0.71x wider lens and $429.

New Speed Booster reduces focal length to bring APS-C camera users into the full frame mirage

Metabones says that APS-C mirrorless camera users will experience the same depth of field as they would do on a full frame camera. The new products come packed with an aperture ring, which could be useful for cameras that cannot control the aperture using built-in settings.

The company claims that almost all G-type lenses will work with its new Speed Booster, except for the 20mm f/2.8 AI-S. However, all Micro Four Thirds and Sony E-mount shooters are supported.

For those who are unaware, Nikon G lenses are the ones which do not feature an aperture ring, like the D-type used to have.

Metabones Nikon G Speed Booster now available for Sony NEX and Micro Four Thirds cameras

The Metabones Nikon G-type Speed Booster has the same price for both E and Micro Four Thirds mounts. It costs $429 and it is available for purchase right now, but only at the manufacturer’s official website.

Metabones has designed the lens adapter in collaboration with Caldwell Photographics and are patent pending, so these guys are very serious about the digital imaging market.
