SAR reader Andrea sent me his Lens Turbo first impression:
“First of all congrats for your great blog, I usually follow your updates every day.
I bought a lensturbo for canon fd lenses by the Shanghai eBay seller you posted the link.
I received it two days ago. I tested it with my 50mm and it is fantastic to see the larger frame and, it seems, a better contrast and sharpness. The weak point is the already known issue of the blue spot when facing a light or the sun, but is not such a big issue.
The real problem came when I tested the lens turbo with the canon fd 20mm. I almost risked to ruin the rear/back lens of the 20mm! The fact is that when you are trying to reach the infinity focus the rear lens of the 20mm protrusion hit the front lens of the lens turbo!!
That problem is not mentioned by the seller and also by the reviewer (the martist, you linked in a post). I wrote to both. The reviewer only write to me he doesn’t have this problem. This is strange because the lensturbo seller just wrote to me:
Thanks for the message…
Indeed the FD 20/2.8 can not use… the rear lens protrusion will hit the lens… sorry… I think you can only focus up to 3 meter, right ?
except for the 20, the other lenss 28, 35, 50, 85 all can use..
Therefore I’m writing this to you because I want to avoid that the same thing happens to others.
I’d also like to know if other lensturbo buyers had the same problem as I did.
Thx for your time.
