“Both of these adapters offer a wider field of view when used with smaller sensor (i.e. Micro Four-Thirds cameras or E-Mount). Since they concentrate more light to your sensor, all of your will end up having faster apertures as well. For instance my EF 100mm F/2.8L Macro shows as an F/2.0 when using the DEC LensRegain. The test was using a GH4 and an 85mm XEEN Prime shot in . As you can see the Metabones Speedbooster ‘S’ Version achieves a wider field of view over the DEC LensRegain. But the adapter is about $650 US Dollars (here). I’m not exactly sure, but the Aputure DEC LensRegain may list for around $500.

Lines look straight, image seemed sharp from middle to corners. There’s a good number of cheap focal reducers on the market that can’t seem to get the optics right. I can’t say it’s any better than the Metabones Speedbooster S Version, but I can say that the DEC LensRegain performed far better than some cheap adapters i’ve tried.
