Kipon Medium Format speedbooster is on the market. Approx $400 sales price.

This one may works well with a macro-kilar 90 converted to Hasselblad.

It's kind of interesting that with the same lens, it should actually give a wider field of view than most digital medium format cameras
The crop factor there is more like 0.79x and not 0.7x

Maybe one day they can make one for the Fuji medium format mirrorless camera as well
To make it more similar to 6x7 lol

Interesting samples, some of these samples look a bit like a 'cheaper' version of the 75 Summilux (less vignetting but not as sharp and probably not as buttery smooth blur because of the focal reducer)

Probably not that great to use in practice, just too damn long and front heavy.

Has anybody tried the adapter ?
I'm very interested in getting one for a mirrorless system, but I heard that infinity focus might be impossible to get...

I have it, but I do not use it as intended Smile
So I can not help you with your question.
I use it for example on a Canon FD 400mm f/2.8 L, FD 300mm f/2.8 L, Wollensak 6 inch/2.5 (likely Kodak Aero Ektar sister), Rubinar 500mm f/5.6, Meyer Diaplan 100mm f/2.8 and other lenses.
