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.

PROS

  • 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

CONS

  • 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

Fringer has just released version 2.4 or their EF/FX smart adapters, optimized for Fujifilm X-T3.

Full Release Notes

Fujifilm X-T3 got much improved AF performance. I found it’s so far the best X camera that can use adapted EF mount lenses. Now all its full sensor covered PDAF points are supported. And as the low light AF capability has been improved to -3EV, AF successful rate got greatly improved. Meanwhile, WIDE/TRACKING mode and FACE/EYE focus are all works much better.

  1. For Fujifilm X-T3 (and all coming cameras with X-Trans IV CMOS), we have optimized PDAF performance of all the lenses (on the tested and optimized lens list). Now you can leverage its full sensor coverage PDAF focus points and get improved AF performance.
  2. Added following lenses to the tested and optimized lens list:
    1. Tamron SP 70-200/2.8 Di VC USD G2
