The new Nikon G – M43 version will have an integrated aperture control ring.

The Micro Four Thirds Camera Lens Turbo Adapter from Mitakon allows lenses to be mounted to Micro Four Thirds format cameras, increasing the angle of view by 0.726x and the maximum aperture of the lens by 1 f-stop.

The four optical elements of the Lens Turbo adapter condense light from the full frame lens and project it onto the camera’s sensor allowing the sensor to capture all of the transmitted light, negating the crop factor and effectively producing full-frame coverage on non-full-frame sensors. A corresponding increase in the maximum aperture of 1 f-stop makes the lens more effective in low-light situations.

This adapter features 4 optical elements including one extra-low dispersion (ED) element which reduces aberrations for better delineated images. The adapter offers a sturdy metal construction and stainless steel mounts, it attaches to both camera and lens with little play and includes a front and rear protective cap. The Lens Turbo is a manual adapter offering no electronic communication between lens and camera.

The New Nikon version features a silver aperture ring which is able to control the aperture of Nikon G lenses through the adapter.

  • Allows lens to be mounted to Micro Four Thirds camera
  • Increases the angle of view by 0.726
  • Increases maximum aperture by 1 stop
  • 4 lens elements in 4 groups including 1 extra-low dispersion element

This lens turbo adaptor may not fit all lenses due to different extensions at the lens rear mount. Lenses with extension more than 3mm are not recommended to use this lens turbo adaptor.

Vignetting may occur if using APS-C lenses. We do not accept return due to the incompatibility with your lenses.


  1. Which one for BMPCC?

    • These can all be used for BMPCC (M43 mount).

  2. Is this the 2nd genertaion of adopter ?(turbo 2) or the old one , i have gh4 with cp2 cine lense does it fit? Thx

    • There is only 1 generation for M43 turbo adaptors. I can fit with GH4 with CP2 cine lens.

  3. Does Nikon AI means that it can support Nikon AI-S as well?

    • Hi Riccardo,

      Nikon AI-S lens can fit our adaptor but please note that this is a manual adaptor with no electronics. Thanks

  4. i have one question, i heard this adaptor have a problem with a blue spot when you shot on sunlights ? or light from lamp.

    • Its the first time we heard about this issue. Share me some photos if you have. I will ask my engineers to take a look at it. Thanks!

  5. How can you control the aperture of an Ef lens mounted on the M43 adaptor for BMPCC ? does it stay closed on f/22 all the time?

  6. because Canon EF photo lenses don’t have aperture ring.

    • It should stay wide-open instead.

  7. I would like to use this with my contax zeiss lenses but unfortunately you don’t have a mount for it. If i will use a contax to eos adapter ring then connect it to your to turbo lens adapter, will i have problems focusing in infinity? If indeed I’ll have problems, does your adapter have an adjustment screw in its rear to resolve this?

    • It should be fine as long as your adapter allows you to focus to infinity.

  8. Do you plan to release M42 (lens) – M43 (camera) version? Let me know please. Thanks

  9. Do you plan to release Minolta MD (lens) – M43 (camera) version? Let me know please. Thanks

    • We hope to have it ready in 2015 Thanks.

  10. Will make one for OM mount in the future?

    • We hope to have it ready in 2015 Thanks.

  11. If you can do one for Sony/Minolta A mount to MFT I would be seriously happy.. I have lots of Minolta A mount glass!

    • Currently we have no plans to make MA-MFT. If we have a change in plan, will let you know. Thanks!

  12. Do you have any plans on a Canon FD —-> MFT adapter?

    • Hi Sir,

      Sorry that we do not have it at this moment.

  13. Will this work with Nikkor 50mm 1.8D? Thanks

    • Yes it works. Thanks!

  14. Hi,
    Does it work with 24/70 canon lens on GH4?

    • Hi Harry,

      Yes it works.

  15. You guyz done a good job on EF-MFT mount. I bought one, It is superb and nice price too. But the dealer where i live say that you stop producing EF-MFT mount with aperture ring. Is this true? ANd why? Do you have plan on version 2 maybe?

    • Where do you buy from? We haven’t produced any lens turbo adapters with aperture ring in the past but we are studying it at this moment.

  16. Is there a version II coming up for this adapter? If yes, can we pre-order? Please advise.

    • It will be ready to launch soon in mid 2015.

  17. Are you guys planning to have an adapter specifically for the BlackMagic Pocket Camera?

  18. I was going to purchase this, but seen that the version 2 will be out shortly. Any chance we can get an approx. month?

    • We target to launch by mid/late 2015. THanks.

  19. What exactly does 0.726 increase in field of view mean? what focal length and aperture equivalent would a 50mm f1.4 canon lens be on a 4/3 system using this adapter?

    • Normally the lens will become 100mm if you use in M43 system. With our lens turbo adaptors, it will become a 72mm lens with f/1.2 maximum aperture if you used in a M43 system.

  20. @admin so planning the release mid 2015 is for m4/3 version II…!!! I know from above there’s only 1 version for m43, but does this mean the SAME or BETTER, at least on optical-performance fronts, optical Quality such as the “Zhongyi Turbo lens II for NEX” but now Mitakon II III etc. and/or Zhongyi II III IV etc. for m4/3 ???
    and no blue spot at all as Zhongyi II also form 4/3 ???

    • Version 2 is going to be released by late 2015. Optical performance will be better for version 2

  21. Hello admin, is there more information about the OM to M43 adapter?

    • Sorry that we currently no plans for OM to M43. Thanks.

  22. Will this turbo adapter fit this lens: Canon FD 50mm 1:1.4 nr.1347891
    I hope it will…

    • Sorry that we have not tested with this lens.

  23. does this have iris control built in?

    • Sorry that there is no Iris control.

  24. Hello can i mount an canon EF-S Lens with your adaptor ?

    • We do not recommend to use with EF-S lenses as the rear mount of the lens protrudes. It may block the elements of the adaptors.

  25. Minolta MD to M4/3. Please, please, no one else is making it. Thanks and have a good year

    • Thanks and we will consider it.

  26. i just bough “Canon – EF 24-70mm f/4L IS USM Lens” for my Panasonic GH4. Will this adapter allow me to control its Aperture or Not?

    • Sorry that we do not have aperture control for our lens turbo adaptor

  27. Hello, are you able to give us a release date yet for the version 2 ef-mft? I know you said it’s coming mid 2015, I ordered my first Rokinon and am going to pick up a GH4 very soon so I’d really like to know if I should wait a little longer. Also, I’m seeing talk of a built in aperture ring? That would solve most canon lens users’ problems. Thanks.

  28. will this adapter with the nikon g lens? is there any way of controlling the aperture size?

    • Sorry that we currently did not have iris control on the lens turbo

  29. Any updates about the version II release date?

    • Tentatively late 2015

  30. Hi Admin,

    I saw your response above for Ali about the 50mm F1.4 Canon lens angle of view:
    “Normally the lens will become 100mm if you use in M43 system. With our lens turbo adaptors, it will become a 72mm lens with f/1.2 maximum aperture if you used in a M43 system.”

    But the description for the Turbo adaptor says “The four optical elements of the Lens Turbo adapter condense light from the full frame lens and project it onto the camera’s sensor allowing the sensor to capture all of the transmitted light, negating the crop factor and effectively producing full-frame coverage on non-full-frame sensors”

    M43 has crop factor of 2, doesn’t that mean the Turbo adapter should increase angle of view by 0.5 instead of 0.726 so we can get crop factor of 1 (no cropping) ?

    • Hi Sir,
      The magnification ratio of the lens turbo adaptors are controlled by the glasses inside. Currently the best we can do is 0.726x. No matter which system you used in it, its still 0.726x.

  31. HI. Do you have plans to release an fd to mft version of this adapter? It just seems to make more sense than an ef to mft variant, as you cannot control the aperture with it.


    • Hi David,
      Its not in our plan for this year. We will take a look at it next year. Thanks!

  32. I have GH4 and panasonic lens 14-42mm ,, is my lens compatible with this ?

  33. hello. precisely when it will be released the new version 2 of the adapter mtf to fd?

    • Tentatively the end of the year.

  34. I saw two different color Ai-m43 adapter. one is red, and the other is white in Zhongyi mark. Is white version newer(version2)?

    • Hi Billy, We have changed to a new embossing machine and so there are 2 mark versions in the market. They are basically the same

  35. Hey, how long is the shipping to Germany with express? Thanks!

    • Around 3- 5 days.

  36. Hi, I am thinking about selling my speedbooster for one of these, just to clarify this adapter doesn’t have an aperture ring? and if thats the case how would one adjust the aperture on a lens without an aperture ring also

    • Hi Josh,

      You will need to adjust the aperture by adjusting the aperture ring on the lens. THanks.

  37. Nikon 24mm ais has a very long protrusion. It is compatible?

    • Sorry that any protrusion more than 3mm may not work with the lens turbo adaptors.

  38. Hi,
    Would this work with olympus em 1?

    • Yes it works with EM-1

  39. I ordered a Nikon2Mft some days ago, but today the order was canceled and the money refundl. There is no more converter in Stock?

    • Yes. Sorry that the AI-M43 is now out of stock.

  40. Hi,
    Would this work with olympus em 5 mark ii?

    • Yes it works.

  41. can i mount a second adapter on the top? i would like also to adapt my old nikon lenses with a nikon to eos on the top of the mitakon.. thanks

    • It should be fine as long as the rear mount protrusion is less than 3mm

  42. Hello, can i use Sigma 18 35 1.8 lens EF mount with Turbo Lens and GH4?
    (Sigma got electronically controlled aperture )

  43. When will be launched the second versión of the EF-MFT turbo adapter and what’s new in the mark2?

    Thank you!

    • Very soon by the end of the year!

  44. It would help a great deal if you could post a table of the different cameras it will work with, and potentially the lenses for Olympus, Nikon and Canon that are compatible.

  45. Will this work with Olympus EM-10 (Mark 1) and the Olympus M.ZUIKO 12 mm f2.0 lens? Thanks.

    • Hi Ray, It will work with EM-10 but this lens turbo are for Canon/Nikon lenses instead

  46. Hi, If I use this adapter with my EF lens at the widest aperture, will my camera (Panasonic G3) control the exposure by adjusting the ISO and the shutter speed?

    • Hi Attila, Yes. You camera body can still do the metering and adjust the ISO and SHUTTER.

  47. Dear, do you have this product placed on the Panasonic GH4?

    • Hi Sir,

      See below image.
      25/0.95 with GH4

  48. I want to use the Panasonic GH4 lenses from Canon full frame

  49. Can I use this adapter for my Panasonic GH4, to adapt my Canon full frame lens? If autofocus work whit this adapter? than you 🙂

    • Yes. It can be used with GH4.

  51. The pre-order for the CANON EF to M43 Adapter is open but Can anybody tell me new features or differences between V1 and V2? And please, not only an “improved performance” or similar… And Is Zhongyi better than RJ Lens Adapter??

    Thank you in advance.

    • Hi Mark, The feature of V1 and V2 is the same. The key difference is that the optical performance is much better for V2 compared to V1.

  52. I just scrolled fast through the comments so sorry if the question will repeat itself. Does the V2 EF-MFT have an aperture ring? Thanks!

    • Hi Andre, Only the Nikon one will have an aperture ring

  53. Hi, Do You know if I can mount a Pentax Lens on it, with a PentaxPK/CanonEF adapter ring?
    The Metabones SpeedBooster is too tight around the lens elements. I’m looking into your product as it do not have contacts.
    Thank You.

  54. Tapes-lens full frame (35mm) and Turbo Lens Adapters vr. II aperture increases by one degree. Does the format 60mm lens (pentacon six) with Turbo Lens Adapters ver. II increases the aperture and more than one degree?

  55. Is The version II of the Zhongyi Lens Turbo Adapter for Canon EF have feature an integrated aperture control ring? Or only for Nikon version?

    • Only the Nikon verison has it.

  56. Thanks for the answer. So basically I can mount any lenses with Nikon mount on my BMPCC and have control over the aperture, right?(Tokina for ex) What is different with the EF lenses that doesn’t allow you to manually adjust the aperture?

  57. Hi, I have a Nikon 14-24mm f2.8G and I am very interested on this adaptor and my question is about tripod mount.

    Has this adaptor a tripod mount “hole”? the 14-24mm is a heavy lens and if I mount this adaptor with 14-24 and in a M4/3 camera maybe the mount collapse…

    thanks in advance.

  61. Hi,
    how can i change aperture when using canon ef ( 50mm f1.8) lens on GH4 , with this adaptor ?

    • Sorry that you will have to use wide open with this adapter.

  62. Hi, I have couple of lenses from my old Canon 7D and want to use them with Lumix G7. I have Canon EF 50mm, f/1.8 II , Tokina 11-16mm DX/1.6x/APS Ultrawide and Tamron 17-50mm. Would Lens Turbo II (Canon EF-M43 v2) work with these three lenses? I primarily want to use it for video recording, less for taking photos. I’d appreciate if someone could answer sooner rather than later, because I want to order Lens Turbo II as soon as possible… like now 🙂 Thanks in advance.

    • Hi Sir, I am sorry that we do not have the mentioned lenses. However, any lens with rear protrusion beyond 3mm is not recommended to use the lens turbo adapter.

  63. Hi admin! Thanks for your answer. I am little confused… are you saying this Lens Turbo II won’t work with my lenses? Any of those three, not even Canon 50 mm F1.8 or Tamron 17-50mm? I really like how they look like on my Canon 7D, but now I’d like to use them with my G7. Again, my question is would Lens Turbo II work fine with lenses I have from my APS-C kamera? Thanks!

  64. canon fd -> mft
    m42 -> mft

    • We currently have no plans for the above mentioned conversion. Thakns.

    • Hi William, We have not tried your lens but any lens with rear protrusion more than 3mm is not recommended to use with focal reducer. Yes it is compatible with EM-1.

  66. Hi. I am seriously thinking of ordering this focal reducer (Nikon to MFT). I just need to know if these lenses work with it: Nikon 35mm f/1.8G DX, Nikon 50mm f/1.8D (for DX or full frame cameras), Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 with confirmation chip (UMC), and Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 withOUT confirmation chip *(functions as a non-CPU lens). Thanks !

  102. Hi.
    I would like to order a “Mitakon 25mm f/0.95”, but I´m not very sure if it will work properly with my new “M4/3 Lumix G7”.
    Together with the “Mitakon” I would also like to order a “Lens Turbo Adapter EF to M4/3” to make use of my old full frame Canon lenses.
