January 12, 2016 | Zoltan Arva-Toth | Accessories | Comment |

Shenyang Zhongyi Optics have released three new Lens turbo adapters for Micro Four Thirds cameras.. The new adapters allow full-frame lenses with an M42 screw mount, Canon FD mount or a Minolta MD mount to be used on Micro Four Thirds cameras with a wider angle of view and faster aperture than with a regular adapter. Just like the previous Zhongyi Lens Turbo (ver II), the new MFT turbo adapter features an optical formula comprising 4 lens elements in 4 groups, including 1 extra-low dispersion element which helps reduce chromatic aberrations. The adapter modifies the FourThirds focal length multiplier of 2 by a factor of 0.726 and improves the maximum aperture of the lens by 1 stop. Available directly from Shenyang Zhongyi Optics, the adapter carries an SRP of $149.
