The reduce factor will be the same. Optics will be a bit optimized for m43 sensor. It only theoretically possible for them to make a 0.5x reducer. but this gave them very large amount of lens incompatibilities du to adapter space constrictions.

The final math for m43 will be FLx1.42 and a increase in aperture by one stop. Diglloyd blog had 2 good articles with the designer about it.

So my 50mm f1.4 behaves like 71mm f1.0, and my Samyang 85mm f1.4 becomes a cool 120mm f1.0

>They also mentioned in one text that the image should be marginal better than even using it on APS-C.
