I suppose that all those with MF legacy glass longing for some extra grunt for their aps-c have now bought an "A7"

Also that those who were quite happy with the crop factor of the aps-c sensor remain happy.

... and, of course those that simply use AF lenses don't need them - unless the lenses are made by Canon and of EF variety and they might not need focal reducers if their shutter squeeze is an A7.

Nor do they seem to be making much of a ripple in their new M4/3 incarnation.

Damme - I really miss the blue spot controversies.

LOL Trust you Tom

Nothing wrong with blue spots and yep I remain with the crop factor. Never did get into the reducers, never liked anything added to the optical path.

All the best Tom, never appealed really.

Yes Danny and focal reducers would reduce the effective focal length of your lenses and might not be welcome ... oh so "far away".
