Fotodiox reported earlier on that they were introducing their Light Cannon: which is essentially their version of the Metabones Speed Booster. The adapter is supposed to offer a 0.72 increase in field of view and make the lens one stop faster. But now, 43rumors got word that they’re also working on a 0.5x adapter.
