Mitakon has announced that it has begun selling its Lens Turbo adapter, that brings full frame Pentax K lenses to Fujifilm X-mount cameras.
Lens adapters have really made a breakthrough on the market in 2013. One of the most popular manufacturers and sellers is Metabones, which is currently offering a number of these products, including a Nikon G version for Sony NEX and Micro Four Thirds mounts.
Mitakon releases Lens Turbo adapter for Pentax K lenses and Fujifilm X-mount cameras
Mitakon is also producing such lens adapters. The company has expanded its offer recently with the launch of the Lens Turbo designed for adapting Pentax K-mount lenses to Fujifilm X-mount cameras.
The new Mitakon Lens Turbo adapter will allow Fujifilm X-Pro1, X-E1, X-M1, and other X-mount shooters to use Pentax K-mount lenses without losing any of their image quality, instead improving some of their features.
Mitakon Lens Turbo adapter provides 0.726x magnification and 1-stop faster aperture
According to the manufacturer, the Pentax K lens adapter offers a 0.726x magnification. Furthermore, it will speed up the lens, as it will provide a wider aperture of one f-stop, which will be quite useful in low-light conditions.
Mitakon’s products have already gathered a number of positive reviews. Users are saying that the Lens Turbos provide a good value for their price, thanks to their features and high-quality build.
The Mitakon Lens Turbo for Pentax K lenses to Fujifilm cameras is available for purchase right now. It can be bought via eBay for only $198, down from the regular price of $239.
The company will ship the adapters worldwide from Hong Kong. The shipping is free, but it might take a few days to reach the destination, as a Hong Kong Post Office is taking care of the shipments.
Be advised: no electronic contacts mean no lens control within the camera
Unfortunately, Mitakon’s lens adapters do not feature any electronic contacts. This means that users will be unable to use autofocus, image stabilization, and set the aperture.
This means that the lens itself must have manual controls. Otherwise, users will not be able to input these settings.
Meanwhile, Mitakon is also offering a Sony NEX camera mount, which would allow users to mount Nikon, Canon, Pentax, Contax, and other lenses on E-mount shooters.
