The Metabones Speed Booster Adapter MB-078 Olympus OM to Micro Four Thirds allows a full frame Olympus OM lens to be mounted to a Micro Four Thirds mount camera, and in doing so increases the angle of view and increases the maximum aperture 1 f/stop.

When a lens intended for full frame sensors or 35mm film is mounted to a camera with a Micro Four Thirds-sized sensor, it transmits a larger area of light than the smaller sensor was built to accept. The Speed Booster condenses light from the lens and projects it onto the smaller sensor allowing the sensor to utilise all of the lens’s light and effectively produce a full-frame angle of view. A corresponding increase in the maximum aperture of 1 f/stop makes the lens more effective in low-light situations and able to create a shallower depth of field.

Metabones Adapters are quality-made, using precision-machined brass with chromium plating on both the camera body and lens sides in order to ensure smooth mounting, great appearance and durability. The lens side features a strong leaf-spring structure, strengthening the adapter-lens connection and ensuring tightness of the lens in order to reduce wear and prevent focus errors and optical alignment issues from appearing. Metabones uses matte-black treatment to keep internal reflection to a minimum in order to maintain the maximum optical quality possible with the lens. This adapter has a detachable tripod foot that is compatible with Arca Swiss, Markins, and Photo Clam ball heads.
