    Metabones site is typically helpful (hah) so I'm just trying to piece this together.

    There seems to be a v2 of the metabones nikon f to m43 adapter with a new sku on B&H of -

    MB_NF-M43-BT2 (still listed as *.BM2 in the url on mb's own page)

    and a new description (taken from B&H here) saying that this version..

    so I'm guessing it's like the new versions they did for other mounts where eg. tilt/shift and some other lenses were occasionally pretty crappy due to light bouncing around the inside.

    Anyone have this? Is it worthwhile? My $20 Nikon adapter is just about dead (occasional wobbly unintentional tilt behaviour, light leaking unpredictably, can't really be bothered fixing it) I'm in the market for a new one anyway and one with its own tripod foot might be pretty handy. Just wondering if anyone has this and if it's worth an extra few tens of bucks to get it over the older model available in online stores here - eg is it really that good or are you still better off doing the baffle/flocking thing yourself.
