Is this basically the opposite of a speedbooster? If that’s the case, it seems to me like you’d lose a stop of light in the optics to correct for a longer flange focal distance, thereby creating a larger image circle. Higher ISOs are getting pretty clean these days, so that may not be a big factor.
Yes there is a slight light loss but I’m throwing in 4×5 NDs to open up the iris to a f4 to decrease depth of field so I light accordingly. The point is I can use thirteen lenses that were sitting around.
Oh, don’t get me wrong, I am not criticizing–I am a huge fan of vintage lenses and wild-a$$ adaptation setups! I’ll never fault anyone for finding a way to use some of the great glass that is still out there. I’ve got a great set of Yashica MLs that I have a truly unreasonable affection for.
Mainly, I was just curious, since the FD->EF flange distance issue is, ya know, the one that created the big dustup when they made the change in the first place. Most of the folks I know are going FD->E because of the ease of adaptation, so I was curious to know if the results were good.
