The Metabones Nikon G to Nikon Z-mount Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x (Black Matt) allows a full-frame or APS-C Nikon F-mount lens to be mounted onto a Nikon Z-mount camera. While doing so, the adapter's optics help to maximize the connected lens's apparent angle of view while providing a 1-stop increase for the camera over the lens's aperture range.
If a lens intended for 35mm film or similarly sized full-frame as well as APS-C camera sensors is connected to a camera with an APS-C sized sensor, it would project an image larger than the APS-C sensor was built to accept. Able to capture only the centre portion of the projected image, the effective angle of view of the lens would be narrowed, creating an in-camera "crop factor." The Speed Booster Ultra 0.71x Adapter for Nikon G Lens to Nikon Z-Mount Camera condenses the light from a lens designed for APS-C as well as 35mm film, or "full-frame" camera sensors and projects it onto an APS-C sensor. This allows an APS-C sensor to utilize more of the light gathered by a connected lens, which effectively reduces the crop factor while making available to the sensor an additional 1 stop of light for each of the lens's f/stop settings.
This adapter is constructed from aluminium alloy for durability while minimizing weight, and its mounting rings are made with brass to further prevent wear and tear. Inside are five lens elements in four groups, and a detachable tripod foot is included that features 1/4"-20 threads as well as compatibility with Arca-Swiss tripod heads. For improved prevention of internal ghosting and reflections, while further enhancing clarity as well as colour fidelity, the lens elements are constructed from high-index tantalum-based glass.
The Speed Booster Ultra 0.71x Adapter for Nikon G Lens to Nikon Z-Mount Camera does not support electronic communication between an attached camera and lens. To help determine the amount of light that enters a Nikon Z-mount camera when using this adapter and a Nikon F-mount lens, an aperture dial is built into the Speed Booster Ultra 0.71x Adapter for Nikon G Lens to Nikon Z-Mount Camera. The aperture dial is designed to provide aperture control for Nikon G-type lenses, which do not have an aperture ring. Nikon AI or many post-Nikon AI lenses can have their aperture settings widened or narrowed using their built-in aperture control rings if preferred.
New optical design: advanced 5-element/4-group optical design incorporating ultra-high index tantalum-based optical glass to achieve extraordinary optical performance with improved corner sharpness, distortion and reduced vignetting.
The Metabones Nikon G to Nikon Z-mount Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x (Black Matt) is compatible with Nikkor F-mount lenses including Nikkor G series, AF-D, AI-P, AIS, AI and non-AI lens only. For important compatibility notes please see our specification tab.
