  • New GH4 owner ~ No lenses

    So I just bought a barely used gh4 with a metabones speedbooster for canon ef lenss. I don't know which lens I should buy, I mostly film travel video and pictures. I would like a lens that can capture what my eyes can see. I am looking at the rokinon 14mm but I also want a lense with image stabilization and autofocus.

    Isn't this the wrong way around? The Speedbooster is a compromise to make full frame lenses work on Micro Four Thirds in a better way (sort of) than a standard adapter. This is mainly for people who already have legacy lenses. Have you considered native MFT lenses?

      Not really the metabones speedbooster offers an extra stop of light as well as it increases the speed of your lens. You also have more choice than native lens as canon and sigma lenses have a great collection of lenses.

        Indeed, but the question is still pertinent - have you ruled out any native lenses? There is some image quality loss through the SpeedBooster and does your one support lens/body electronic communication?

        Sorry for all the questions, I'm just fascinated by your requirements
