Don't we spend more on lenses than cameras? Doesn't the metabones allow us to use all those lenses? It is a bargain for some...

Good to know it's real!

Here's another shot from Sarah Kirari, "Red brick warehouse":

I just placed a pre-order!

Let's see if B&H does better with this than Adorama.
I have placed my pre-order also,

Now I'll wait and see if one actually materializes some day.

B&H just sent me a "still out of stock" message,
but their website continues to record "expected availability" for Monday.

I wonder if they have an automated system to keep purchasers interested.

A message every month to let you know it's still expected.
Until they find out it's not coming, which happened with my Adorama order.

I assume that it is 'delayed'??

I know I ordered one late.

Thay changed from "Expected August 3" to "New item - coming soon".

I hope that's not a Jamaican "soon come"!

Delay

It may be that Metabones is waiting to reach a certain number of pre-orders. When they reach a good profit point they will start banging them out. If they do not get enough orders they may just shine the whole thing on. After all, how great a difference can there be in the manufacture of ones for Nikons and ones for the K > Q design?

I hope you guys get your Metabones. From the three photos posted, all muddy, I think I will pass. Let me ask, does Metabones degrade the color a bit or are those just three bad photos?

The K 50/1.2 doesn't have a lot of contrast at f/1.2.
The photos could certainly use a little PP.

FYI, sarah_kirari's setups is
K-mount lenses -> K&F Concept K-NIK adapter for Nikon F mount bodies -> Metabones Q666 speed booster for Nikon lenses -> Q-S1.
Twitter

It's NOT Q666 for K-mount lenses.

I've never seen K-NIK adapter but it seems to have a lens element.

Thanks for the clarification. That K-NIK must be eating what little contrast there was.
