Aputure DEC LensRegain: Speed booster, lens adapter & follow focus

Ted (video above):So we just came out with our new DEC LensRegain, which is an EF to MFT adapter that’s a wireless follow focus, focal reducer and remote control in one! This is probably the most anticipated product that we’ve had to date and it just got released yesterday, but is still on it’s way to most dealers.

Jan:I did a test about lens sample variation useing three copies of the Panasonic 25mm F/1.7: http://www.janundseinekamera.de/lens-sample-variation/

John:Surprise to me when I got a package late last night that contained the mysterious adapter which I purchased through Indigogo last Feb or March.
Initially, it looked well made with a great tripod mount (which I intend to use with other lenses). However, when I tried to fit it to my E-M5 this morning I found that due to the size of the rear flange the adapter can’t clear the EVF housing and mate to the camera. There appears to be a 2-3mm clearance problem. So I took the Dremel and a couple of files to the adapter last night with good results. Fits my E-M5 nicely although I can’t show it because I dropped it off for servicing this afternoon. Here it is with my Nikkor 50mm f1.4 and my trusty backup AIR:
