Nikon CX mount needs a Focal Reducer Lens Adapter
Jan 15, 2013

Like the new Metabones Speed Booster Adapter that make lenses faster, wider and sharper.

It may seem impossible but it's not, and this link to Metabones whitepaper will tell you how it works.

Nikon should make one of these focal reducer adapters so we can use DX and FX lenses with the CX mount and get all these advantages the current FT-1 adapter does not provide and make those DX and FX focal lengths more useful on the Nikon 1 cameras and get a faster lens in the bargain!
