The Metabones T CINE Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x Adapter for Canon EF Lenses to be used on Sony E-Mount Cameras is the fifth generation of EF to E speed booster from Metabones. It features an advanced 5-element/4-group optical design incorporating a glass element that improves corner sharpness, lessens distortion, and reduces vignetting. This is the first version compatible with the Sony PXW-FS7 Mark II.
The MB_SPEF-E-BT3, like the rest of the Speed Booster ULTRA line, has a magnification of 0.71x &mdash recing the crop factor or mirrorless cameras with DX-sized sensors. This EF to E Adapter also increases the maximum aperture by one stop and features fast contrast-detect AF on all E-Mount cameras.
Structurally, the T CINE Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x is built with a rubber gasket that protects the mount connection from dust and moisture. Its interior felt material is flocked to reduce internal reflection. The tripod foot is detachable and compatible with Arca Swiss, Markins, and Photo Clam ball heads.
T CINE Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x Electronic Features:
Phase-detect autofocus support on A7RII, A7II, A6300 and A6500.
Supports 5-axis in-body image stabilization of A7II, A7RII and A7SII. (Distance information from lens required; 3-axis IBIS if lens does not transmit distance information.)
Powered by camera body. No external power source required.
Aperture control from camera body.
Custom function button assignable to more than 50 functions on A7 series, A6300 and A6500.
Dedicated IBIS (in-body image stabilization) switch for A6500, A7II, A7RII and A7SII.
LED indicator shows operation mode, OIS (optical image stabilization) activity and communication status.
High performance 32-bit processor and efficient switched-mode power supply.
Supports image stabilization (IS) lenses.
Supports electronic manual focusing (e.g. EF 85/1.2L II and discontinued EF 50/1.0L)
EXIF support (focal length, aperture, zoom range)
Distance and zoom display on VG and FS series camcorders, A7 series, A6300 and A6500 (lens with distance information support required).
Auto "APS-C Size Capture" on full-frame cameras
Unfortunately, continuous autofocus and video autofocus are not supported. In fact, AF is disabled with Canon Cinema lenses such as the CN-E 18-80mm T4.4. Also, Sony NEX cameras cannot display aperture values beyond f/1.0; if a f/1.2 Canon EF lens is used with a Speed Booster ULTRA the resulting aperture is f/0.9 but the camera body displays the original aperture f/1.2 to the camera body. i.e, lenses slower than f/1.4 report boosted aperture to camera body; lenses at or faster than f/1.4 report original aperture to camera body (with firmware later than V0.38). This Speed Booster ULTRA is NOT fully compatible with full-frame Sony A7 series. When Speed Booster® ULTRA is used with Sony A7 series, the camera will turn on the "APS-C Size Capture" mode automatically.
