Kipon Baveyes EF-FX AF Autofocus “Speedbooster” Adapters Review
Kipon Baveyes EF-FX AF
When I was at photokina 2018, I stopped at the Kipon booth, and checked out the Kipon EF-FX 0.7x focal reducer (the quivalent of Metabones’ Speedbooster). Since I couldn’t test it, all I can say it that it feels very well build.
If you want to know more about it, definitely check out the Kipon Baveyes EF-FX ”Speedbooster” review at Mattias Burling Youtube.
- all metal very sturdy build
- USB port for firmware
- similar results to Viltrox and Metabones focal reducers, and no so buggy like the Viltrox
- AF for stills is pretty good
- with some lenses swirly bokeh (the reviewers likes it, but some others might not like it)
- X-H1 IBIS sometimes gives vignetting and ND sometimes creeps into frame
- AF is not as reliable as native lens
- not for streets and sports photography
- Video AF is not great
