OK, this seems to be their site

 

http://www.rjcamera....ute=common/home

 

Note that (on contact us) they make no mention of their physical address.

 

they mention their email address and paypal. It looks like a rebranded item and resold by this Ron Jing from Shanghai

I personally am very happy with the Zhongyi lens turbo II because they are a well known brand and made well, don’t have the hot spot in the center and perform very well.

 

The RJ Brand speed booster might be made by the same production line but it is an unknown quantity. I have seen some tests which suggest that they are good.

 

 

 

 

You can find these Zhongyi lens turbo II for $149 or less on Ebay.. They cost €229 in shops in the NL.

 

I have bought two (one M42 to FX and a Canon EF to FX) currently I have only the second because I decided to use M42 lenses without any focal reducer while using the Canon on my Petzval 85mm.

 

 

 

Where are you going to buy them for €100? 

 

Im going to buy on ebay.

 

The problem with Zhongyi is that they don't have Canon FD adapter, only EF, Nikon and M42 - so none of them will fit my lenses.

For FD on ebay there are only this "RJ", Metabones and no-names (you are right, most probably the same as "RJ")...

And Metabones is TOO expensive

 

Anyway, will post some tests afterwards. Thank you for help

I didn’t know that Zhongyi doesn’t make a Canon FD > FX focal reducing adapter, you may ask them because they certainly have that mount for other cameras ( and might be able to do this special order for you).

 

try to ask them first, before you order

They don't have a Pentax K mount one for fuji either....I guess I'll just get an EOS one and a pk to eos adapter.

I use the Camdiox EOS-Fuji X one and then use various adaptor rings that I've had since my Canon days. I haven't had any major issues with it yet. It does sometimes have the blue dot effect if you point it directly at a strong light source but that's not something I tend to do very often anyway. 

 

I have some example shots below that I've taken with an X-T1 and various lenses.
