Very, very cool.

Basically gives you the optics of an FF lens on an APS-C sensor. DOF, light capturing ability, resolution, everything. So a 50 1.8 would become something like a 36 1.3. Only downside, no in camera metering or autofocus. Maybe there is metering, IDK. In any case, I'm def intrigued, but this is low on my list of priorities ATM.

Woah, that's bad ass.

I'd consider it for my Sony Nex 5N, but my lens collection all fits it already.  FF lenses are big time money, right?

No way. Thats the best part. Canon FD lenses are dirt cheap. You can get a handful of fast primes for cheap. Like $500 for 3-4 lenses. It's all MF though. I'm def thinking about messing around with some. Just a 35mm 2.0 to walk around with.
