    So I just purchased the md speed booster this morning.

    Super excited.

    This afternoon got a great deal on this...

    Needless to say I spent too much money today and now I feel the need to sell some lenses.

    Will be listing soon.

    That's always the way it is. And then I regret selling anything. :)

    Sounds like fun. Are you interested in the camera, the lens, or both?

    I got it just for the lens but know I'm itching to buy some film.

    Ooooh congrats! The FL55/1.2 is my favorite lens but takes some getting used to. I am pretty sure I'm buying the FD-NEX lens turbo adapter to turn this into a total monster but just want to see a few user reviews of this first!

    You got me a little confused. You bought the MD speed booster, but you can't use that Canon 55/1.2 on it?

    I know. I was happy with just buying the speed booster for my 20+ minolta lenses.

    But then this deal came by and I couldn't pass up a 55 1.2 for the price.

    So if the booster is all it's cracked up to be I will be purchasing the fd version also.... If it will work on an fl mount.

    That FL f/1:1.2 must be quite a lens (bokeh/low light) as is!!! :thumbup:
    I like that focal length a lot...
    Expensive I assume?

    Congrats on (both) purchases ;)

    Can't wait to see images with that focal reducer and Minolta lenses!
