  1. Hi all! I have a dilemma in terms of what lens to get next, probably for weddings mostly. I already have the 12-35 2.8, the Leica 42.5 1.2 and the sigma 16mm 1.4. i am wondering do i need a fast 25mm in my arsenal for the gap between the 16mm and the 35mm? something like the Olympus pro 25mm 1.2? - or do i need to look more for the longer end to cover that off - like with the 35-100 2.8 or even the Olympus 12-100 f4? - or again go just for a fast long prime like the Samyang 85,mm 1.4? I suppose i am worried about the long shots for the ceremony etc etc - but also concerned i don't h
  2. No its not that extreme. If you want to change it you can go into the stabilser options in the menu and the focal length settings are in their. The annoying thing is that even if you choose not to change the focal setting the camera will ask you to confirm the setting each time you turn it on..a possible future firmware update would be great to remove this..
  3. Ok received the Zhongyi lens turbo yesterday along with a normal nikon to m43 dumb adapter to use with the nikon sigma 18-35 with the GH5. First impressions - No issues I can see at all with Vignetting and if it is there it is not noticeable, at the wide end with the Zhongyi which is around 13mm after conversion and it seems fine. In terms of image quality I am finding it hard to see any noticeable difference between the image out of the Sigma through the dumb adapter or the Zhongyi which is great news to me. I shot some stuff in doors and saw comparable quality in terms of sharpness
  4. do not know what you mean? I am talking about the panasonic gh5
  5. Thanks...ideally though i dont want to have to go in and change this focal setting everytime i choose to zoom in or out?..is there not an optimal setting or range to suite any focal range on the lens?
  6. yes thats what I meant thanks for claryfying..can I ask what setting you put it in for the focal range when you turn the camera on seeing as its a zoom lens?
  7. lovely stuff!...one question...do you have to enter the focal length on the GH5 everytime you turn it on with the lens turbo on?
  8. great to hear!...can you show me some example videos?
  9. Lumix 12-35 F2.8 & Lumix 42.5 1.7 £550, both lenses in excellent condition, come with front and rear lens caps..paypal and uk only
  10. i suppose the question now is...do i want the tank that is the sigma 18-35 with adapter on my gh5 compared to my nice neat and small native lenses? Is the IQ of the Sigma and Low light opportunities that the lens turbo offers worth it?
  11. Thanks again for all your responses... If anyone has any test footage with this combo would be keen to see it.. especially how good\bad the zhongyi lens turbo is compared to the metabones
  12. Thanks!..if I can get a good enough price for the 12-35 f2.8 i will keep the 25mm and 42.5!
  13. Thanks for your replies! this guy tried the sigma 18-35 gh5 with speedbooster XL and still had no vignetting issues?
