Metabones designs, manufactures and sells quality camera adapters and related camera accessories. Metabones has its own design team based in Japan and Hong Kong, and also has its own production line in China. As a camera accessories specialist, Metabones is known for its unique designs, workmanship and reliability.
The Metabones Nikon G to Micro Four Thirds Speed Booster allows a full frame Nikon G lens to be mounted to a Micro Four Thirds mount APS-C format camera and in doing so increases the angle of view and increases the maximum aperture one f/stop. Contrary to the popular trend of other factories using an aluminum ring painted black on the camera-body-side, we instead take no short-cut but use precision-machined brass with chromium plating on both the camera-body and the lens sides of our adapters, in order to ensure smooth mounting, great appearance, and durability. The lens side of the adapter features a strong leaf-spring structure, strengthening the adapter-lens connection and ensuring tightness of the lens in order to reduce wear and prevent focus errors and optical alignment issues from appearing. Metabones® uses matte-black treatment to keep internal reflection to a minimum in order to maintain the maximum optical quality possible with the lens.
Autofocus may be disabled for older third-party lenses, including most Sigma, Tamron and Tokina lenses and all Contax N lenses modified by Conurus. This Smart Adapter is also compatible with fully manual lenses which have no electrical contacts. Metabones® Nikon G to Micro Four Thirds Speed Booster follows this tradition of uncompromising precision, robust build quality and outstanding finish. This mount is manual aperture control. It does NOT support electronic aperture control.
Industry's best aperture ring covers a 8-stop range with half-stop markings, clearly indicating actual number of f-stops. No more guesswork.

This Metabones Speed Booster has two different operation modes, Green and Advanced. In Green Mode battery power is conserved by reducing certain functions. For example, in Green Mode there is no depth of field preview and no auto magnify manual focus assist. The operation mode is set when you mount the lens.
The lens' aperture is set to wide open for ease of focusing while the Wide-Open (WO) button of the Metabones Speed Booster is depressed. Release the button and the lens will return to the aperture set on the camera. This wide-open function is automatically shut off when you actually take a picture and during movie capture.
This adapter has a detachable tripod foot that is compatible with Arca Swiss, Markins, and Photo Clam ball heads.
Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), or other auto functions are not retained using this speed booster.
