New MINI 35mm Adapter from Letus
Well, look at this. The makers of the Letus Extreme, a 35mm adapter with a built-in prism flip for larger sized cameras, have announced the release of their new product, the LETUS MINI. The MINI allows cameras with lens filter sizes under 43mm to take full advantage of the greater depth of field that can be achieved with 35mm lenses. Letus states that this adapter has “absolutely no vignetting” and excellent edge to edge sharpness. Ranging from $500 - $1500 and more, most of the small format 35mm adapters suffer one or more of the following problems: light loss, edge to edge sharpness, an upside down image, unattractive bokeh, and chromatic abrasion. If you trust the reviews online, it seems that the Letus Mini has solved most of these problems. Mount options include the Canon FD, Nikon AI, Canon EF (EOS), Pentax K mount, Minolta MD or the optional PL mount and OCT19 mounts. The price is listed at $1,099.00. Still a bit pricey for me, but if you are a kind and caring soul, you can send me an early Christmas present! Ho!Ho!Ho!
