Sony Nex Electronic Lens Adapter Options and Reviews!!


As lots of you Sony Nex Fans know, Electronic Lens Adapters are all the rage these days!! Especially if your coming from the CanoNikon crowd which approximately 75% of you are?? Totally guessing, see poll below so we can find out for sure 😉

Well, for those of you packing some modern Canon EF Glass, your in luck!!! Metabones has been working on the electronic lens adapters for the Sony Nex and other camera systems, for some time. They now have an adapter called the “Speedbooster”, and it’s pretty awesome from what I can tell!! Basically, it takes all the light from the full frame ef lens and focus’s it down to the crop factor sensor giving a Boost in light and therefore speed!!

Check out the Ebay listings for Metabones Adapters Here >>

Speed Booster Field Test Review

Courtesy of TheCameraStore, we have an excellent hands-on style review from Chris Niccolls. He puts the Metabones adapter through the paces with actual real world photography!!

The Metabones Speed Booster can turn your Sony NEX camera into a full frame mirrorless camera that takes Canon lenses! Chris Niccolls gives the Speed Booster a test drive to see if there are any drawbacks to using this amazing piece of technology.

Metabones Alternatives??

Techart is another company that makes an electronic lens adapter for Canon EF lenses, and has Full AF support, aperture control, and Image Stabilization works!! It can be found on Ebay for ~$250 US (Click Here)  

Pretty nice looking in the video below and reasonable priced in my opinion.

Lens Turbo??

Perhaps we will have another affordable alternative soon!! Rumor courtesy of SonylphaRumors:

Big news guys! The Chinese company Zhongyi Optical officially announced the “Lens Turbo” adapter. It’s the cheap alternative of the famous Speed Booster. The Zhongyi Optical company isn’t an unknown company for NEX owners. The company is the maker of the Mitakon 35mm f/0.95 E-mount lens (Here on eBay). On the picture on top you can see the Pentax to NEX adapter.

How did they avoid to get into a legal dispute with Metabones? The optical design differs and the Lens Turbo has a reduction ration of 0.726 (Speed Booster is 0.71).

It’s a manual adapter only while some Speed Booster adapters also support full electronic AF and Aperture control. The Lens Turbo price is set at RMB$850, which is roughly US$110.



Contax G to Nex Electronic Lens Adapter

Courtesy of DeoTech we have the new Contax G to NEX electronic lens adapter. Not sure when the adapter is actually going to ship as their website appears to be down at the moment 😉

    great in-depth article. thx

  2. Cool review of some great adapters. Speedbooster looks great but lots of $$$
    Make sure they send you one to review:)

  3. Jose

    Do you know if there is any kind of tripod collar suitable for this lens turbo adapter?

    I have some old and heavy lenses and liked to set the camera into a tripod but I guess is won’t be a good idea because of the weight.



    • Jay


      I don’t sorry, and yes you really need to be careful with the weight. Most of the super heavy lenses have the tri-pod color option though thankfully.
