Works Great!

Hi Joe, you are not a frequent poster here, and I absolutely appreciate that you share your experience and gorgeous photos. I used to live and work in Tampa, FL for a year; those were perfect days. Anyhow, I have a regular Nikon G - FX adapter, which I found quite decent, as I reviewed here http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/53807710

My question, what was the reason that you bought the expensive speed booster? Did you have problem with your inexpensive Nikon - FX adapter? When looking at your photos, they are nice, still I have the feeling that you could have made similar quality photos with this terrific f1.2 lens on a regular Nikon - FX adapter, either. Do you find the images (much) better with the speed-booster?

I picked this photo for You, Joe. We love music of old times, too. Isn't it interesting that a technically imperfect (actually spoiled) photo became a favorite for our band?

Take care, Miki
