Speed booster technical support should have to be more efficient


I was very interested in Metabones Speed Booster capabilities.

I wanted to buy one for a NEX 7 body with Leica R lenses.

I read specifications before ordering.

I could see that :

"The following lenses require modification in order to fit on the Speed Booster.

Super-Elmar-R 15mm
Elmarit R 28/2.8
Elmarit R 35/2.8
Summicron R 50/2"

I wanted to use it with Leica R Summicron 2/35 and 1:4 35 70 zoom

Having a doubt I asked Metabones if any modification was required for my lenses.

(Link Ask a question about his product on Metabones Page)

I got no answer.

As I could not see my lenses in the above list, I ordered a Speed Booster.

I received it today : I cannot focus beyond 2 meters !

I do not know what to do to fix that !

I am disappointed and angry.

Nice day to every body.

Did you mean you are unable to focus to infinity? If so, these infinity adjustment instructions on the Metabones web site may help. http://www.metabones.com/smart-adapter-operation-manual/155-infinity-adjustment-speed-booster-only

Yes I read that but I could not do it : The summicron F2/35 could not enter correctly in the adapter. There is a part -at the back of the lens- to protect it when we put it on a table wo cap.
Also, I wanted to use other lenses with this speed booster.
Leitax gave me the solution : file this part.
