27 Sep Return of the Focal Reducer: Zhongyi Lens Turbo II for Fujifilm-X
Source: Fujifilm Insider
It is now more than two and a half years ago that I published a review of the Camdiox/Roxen focal reducer for Fujifilm cameras. I never suspected that this particular blog post (and a couple of follow-ups) would become so massively popular. During the years it gathered views in the hundreds of thousands and, even today, attracts lots of visits almost daily.
This is a solid proof that Fujifilm users (and mirrorless shooters in general) are particularly interested in such devices. What started some years ago by Metabones and their famous Speedboosters, is definitely not a fad but a solid and very useful option.
The Camdiox/Roxen was basically a generic copy of the Metabones, and belongs to the first generation of focal reducers. The exact same device was sold with different branding, and I do suspect that the first generation Lens Turbo was perhaps one of them. Or, in any case, it provided about the same level of optical performance…
