    if someone here in EU wants to buy a focal reducer without duty risks, on ebay.co.uk there's digiunitedcom selling FR, from camdiox. Someone yet tried camdiox?

    I forgot about duty when ordering mine
    It makes it quite likely this one will work out cheaper than the one I ordered from China (and with better return options).

    I just got a camdiox m42 adapter from a british ebay shop, cam2uk. Haven't downloaded from camera yet, but pictures seem good.

    Here you can find samples of charts taken with various Reducers and hunting for "the blue spot":

    It's fine! Look what the RJ reducer from the test shot in your link can do.

    Two photos taken a couple of weeks apart, so fwiw ... First photo is mir24 + m42 adapter + metabones c/y speedbooster. Second is mir24 + camdiox m42 booster. With the metabones you do also get a lens support thing built in, plus as someone pointed out probably somewhat stricter quality control.

    It's an absolute crap! Don't even try to use it! Buy it and waste it to protect others! (Use protective gloves...) ;)

    But seriously... There were some people asking me for chart shots. I'm not a tender lover of those. Why? Some time in the past, when I was choosing my lenses, I followed some serious tests with charts, diagrams, etc. It might be a tip, but there's something more in photography than numbers and tables. Not always the best performance is the best for shooting.
    Personally, I prefer lenses with "soul", than insanely sharp, nearly "industrial" lenses. To emphasize that, check my Lucar 50/1.6, which is a projector lens with mad image quality - I love that lens! :)

    Still - it's a thread about focal reducer, so someone might be interested in charts. There they are :) Yet, your samples state the obvious - it's a very good tool and worth using :)

    P.S. My OM adapter finally came :) As soon as the weather gets better, I take for a walk with my Zuiko 50/1.8.

    Orfeo - you made my day with that shot! A beautiful thing!

    I've finally tested it with my Olympus 50/1.8 and I'm amazed. Here's the "convincing" 100% crop sample and more are available here: Olympus Zuiko 50/1.8 with Focal Reducer - review.

    Pawel I read some of your latest blog page, but I cannot find any mention of exactly which focal reducer you bought.
    Any chance of more about that?
    Good results!
