Re: Cant decide if a speed booster or the 35mm 1,4

Speed boosters are terrific tools to adapt  manual lenses. However, be mindful that not all manual lenses will fit well with all speed boosters. This is because some of the aperture pins on some manual lenses will catch on some speed boosters.

This causes either a very tight fit and/or makes it so the aperture ring cannot be turned. That said, some speed boosters do fit well with manual lenses but there are exceptions. The usual remedy is to file down the aperture pin so it doesn't catch on the speed booster.

Due to the variety of speed boosters which exist and the enormous variety of lenses which exist, it's difficult to say whether or not there'll  be a problem with any particular matchup.
