What if Metabones produced an M to T Speedboost Adpter

Recommended Posts

I have used the R to NEX Speed Boost adapter for the 2.0/35 Summicron on my nephew's Nex-7 which keeps it as a 35mm (rather than a 50) but boosts the speed to f1.4 with very impressive results.

 

Metabones®

 

 

So a Metabones M to T Speed Booster would allow one to use M lenses at their intended focal length but a stop faster. On the Leica T, with such an adapter, a 1.4/35 Summilux FLE becomes a 1.0/35, a 1.4/50 Summilux becomes a 1.0/50, and a 0.95/50 Noctilux becomes a....you do the calculation.....

 

Any bet it would also be cheaper than the Leica M to T adapter.

I've worked it out and unless I'm mistaken, if you stack a couple of speed boost adapters to a Noctilux at a reasonably high iso setting you'll be able to take a photo of tomorrow afternoon.

So if you fit the same adapters backwards you'll be able to take a photo of yesterday

afternoon.

There are no speedbooster adapters for M to anything as far as I know, no room in such a thin adapter. They only come for slr lenses, and most seem to say you lose corner sharpness, whats the point of that for such great lenses.
