Has anyone tried a Metabones Speed Booster adapter on a Fujifilm X body? Has anyone compared images using the speed booster v normal adapter? I'm considering buying speed booster to use my canon lenses on my X-T1

I use the Speedbooster exclusively. The lenses I use are Nikon Ai/S lenses. It works well enough, but the problem isn't the glass or the adapter, it's that your automatically indexing SLR lenses have to be used stopped down, which when used in conjunction with strobes in dark situations causes the EVF to chop to hell, or you to have to shoot wide open.

Handling of SLR lenses and even rangefinder lenses isn't great on a mirrorless camera. It works, but never ever resembles the fluidity and ease/speed of the same lenses on their original mounts. If you can live with those (somewhat massive caveats) go for it. I love the Speedbooster.
