The Metabones Speed Booster Ultra Adapter MB-109 Olympus OM to Sony E-Mount allows a Olympus OM lens to be mounted to a Sony NEX camera, and in doing so increases the angle of view and increases the maximum aperture 1 f/stop.

Advanced optical design: 5-element/4-group optical design incorporating ultra-high index tanatalum-based optical glass to achieve extraordinary optical performance with improved corner sharpness, distortion and reduced vignetting.

Like the revolutionary original Metabones Speed Booster, the Speed Booster ULTRA has a magnification of 0.71x, and so effectively reduces the crop factor of mirrorless cameras with DX-sized sensors, such as Sony E-mount and Fuji X-mount cameras, from 1.5x to 1.07x. However, the ULTRA design makes very effective use of exotic materials at the furthest limit of glassmaking technology, and as a result is well corrected for use with virtually all fullframe SLR lenses regardless of exit pupil distance. Thus, the Speed Booster ULTRA performs extremely well with professional-grade f/2.8 zoom lenses such as the 24-70mm f/2.8 and 70-200mm f/2.8 zooms by Canon and Nikon to produce 17-50mm f/2.0 and 50-142mm f/2.0 high-speed zooms, respectively. Similarly, high-speed fixed focal length lenses such as a 50mm f/1.2 will be transformed into a 35.5mm f/0.9 lens with excellent contrast and resolution from the center all the way to the edges of the image.

When a lens intended for full frame sensors or 35mm film is mounted to a camera with a smaller 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 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.

Note: Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), or other auto functions are not retained using this Speed Booster. Auto focus function is not supported when using this adapter. For further information on lens-body compatibilities and functions please refer to the Metabones website.
