  1. Thanks. I've been shooting weddings on hacked GH2s with fast primes for a few years. I really like the look of shooting with primes, but would like the convenience to be able to quickly zoom out and grab a wider shot of the action or get an establishing shot without switching lenses. I'd prefer something faster than the native f2.8 lenses for filming dark receptions and having the option of shallower DOF.
  2. Thanks for sharing your observations. I'm looking to use this setup for run-n-gun documentary and wedding work, so those 3-5 seconds to adjust the setting could mean missing the moment. Sounds like I might be better off with the Canon EF version.
  3. Hi folks. I've got a GH5 on preorder, and would like to pair it with a Nikon speedbooster and Sigma 18-35. As I understand it, the Nikon speedbooster is non-electronic so the camera won't automatically adjust the IBIS focal length setting (whereas the Canon EF version may do so?). So my question is, does anyone have firsthand experience with how the IBIS on a G85 or GX85 works with a Nikon mount Sigma 18-35 lens? If you set the IBIS halfway, say at 25mm, how well does it stabilize? I'd rather not shell out for a Canon EF speedbooster since I have no other Canon EF lenses, but if it works much better with IBIS on the GH5 I may have to do so. Thoughts?
  4. Halfway through filming our no-budget feature film on the trusty GH2 with a Driftwood Moon T7 hack. Lenses used are Sigma 30mm 1.4, Canon FD 50mm 1.4, and SLR Magic 12mm. teaser: We're running a kickstarter to finish the film here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1914745614/feature-film-the-act-of-leaving
