    Roxsen Focal Reducer "Speed Booster" adapter -- C/Y to NEX

    Description
    This is a knock off of the Metabones product. Sells on ebay for $95, shipping from China, so you can get this one in like-new condition for a few bucks less and a few weeks quicker. Allows you to shoot any C/Y mount lens on NEX/E-mount. Also included is an M42>C/Y adapter, which will allow you to use any M42 lens with the focal reducer as well. It is super low profile, adding no length to the set up.

    The adapter increases the speed of the lens by one stop and reduces the focal length by .71X. So that means your MF glass will shoot very close to it's stated FL on an NEX camera, after you increase FL by 1.5X and reduce by .71X.

    I have not tried the Metabones product as a comparison, but I thought the quality was good with the Roxsen. It's a cost-effective way to add versatility to your lens line up, and a fun photographic "toy" to have in your bag. Comes with caps (as shown) and box.

    First two shots are just the focal reducer; third shows the M42 adapter in foreground; fourth shows the M42 adapter attached.

    No one wants this little guy? Fun addition to your kit if you have C/Y or M42 lenses.

    Bump. I thought this would be an easy sell. Bargain way to check out a speed booster. No interest?

    $75

    One last price reduction bump. Hopefully a worthwhile deal for someone at $60.

    OK, let's try something different. If anyone wants to test-drive this thing let me know. I will ship it to you; you can try it out for a week or two. If you want to purchase at that point you can pay for it. If not just send it back to me.

    So you're risking maybe $5 in return shipping to try before you buy.

    Any interest please let me know. Thanks.
