  1. It can be the same. Put your m4/3 camera with a 25mm f1.4 next to a FF cam with a 50mm at F2.8. The framing and DOF will be identical. See the many examples above for more info. As a side note: I would like to cheer everyone participating in this nerdy thread on equivalence for not getting into petty arguments (i.e. the way this subject normally ends up being debated haha).
  2. Kidding? This is exactly the point Northrup has been making all along (i.e. apply crop factor to both focal length and aperture to understand how lenses behave on a specific sensor size). Happy everyone is one the same page now Now let's see whether we ever get an EOS-M speedbooster... The M5 / M50 are not that hot for video, but boosting 'em up to fullframe in such a small package...should be very nice indeed.
  3. Your picture shows the Viltrof EF- E II adapter...but that is an E-mount adapter? See here Can you point us in the direction of a EF - EF-M focal reducer with AF (as there are many 'dumb' options)
  4. See what you mean... :sad face: Weird folk out there.
  5. I see what you mean, from 0:37 across the cyclist body, and then in the next static shot in the right side of frame. Have you seen more of this, @whoisjsd? Still way better than blue orbs from the Rangefinder.
  6. I think you are talking about the AG-LA7200. Much sought after, but often available on ebay for anywhere between 600-1000 dollars. Check Tito's review:
  7. I remember a YT video from a guy soldering a mic input on his LX100 yeah...cool stuff. Let me take the opportunity to cheer you on for having a go at you GX80 ;-)
  8. @BTM_Pix G'damn this deserves more attention man. Excellent job. Hope the community picks it up. Just ordered a cheap GX80, can't wait to give it cine D ;-) (OT: you mentioned in another thread a mic input hack for the GX80? Did you take it apart and find a connector on the board or something? Or just kidding? ;-))
  9. Hey @Ronnie Amighetti, how did this turn out? Got my hands on a super cheap Gx80. Lack of mic input is a hassle that a BM VA might solve (with other added benefits)...
  10. Off topic but F* it...so sorry to hear man. I hope things work out for you and your family and that your story may function as a cautionary tale for others... As a Dutchman, living in a country with strong social security for everyone (and without guns), things happening now in the (very wealthy) US are so bewildering to me.
  11. People love their precious hardcoreDNA's so good luck ;-) But sometimes there is one for sale, usually at a premium above retail price. Ask around in the Anamorphic Shooters group on FB. Good people mostly, and both the developer and EU reseller of hardcoreDNA are active there as well.
  12. Hey @Hans Punk, but doesn't that mean that the Tokina is stronger? If you have to bring the camera closer with the Tokina on, then 'infinity' on the Tokina is a lesser distance from the camera. Ergo Tokina is a stronger diopter, no?
  13. Congratulations man! Rare find, where'd you get it? Let us know how you like it (and footage is always nice ;-))
  14. I have been discussing this adapter in the G7/G80 users facebook group, also people interested over there. There is a version with focal reducer underway to me, so then I can confirm whether that one works on my G7 (the Ef-M1 did not autofocus, as stated). In the discussion in the GH5 group you linked to, there was a guy who had his G80 working with AF, so there are models that are not officially supported, but DO work. I guess you'll just have to wait for a review, someone with a GX* will eventually cave in, I guess ;-) As for your question: I don't know for sure whether Sharpest Li
  15. I have the version without glass (EF-M1) and the one with focal reducer discussed above is on its way (EF-M2). On my G7, I can electronically adjust aperture, but autofocus does not work at all. I contacted the company that makes / distributes them, Sharpest Light Limited, through facebook. They are very responsive, but for now confirmed that g7 and other mid-tier camera's are not supported. See the list below. If there is enough interest however, they would look into it. Maybe that USB port will get some usage then! So by all means, send them an email or FB msg :-) Perso
  16. I just bought the EF-MFT version without focal reducer to use my Sigma 18-35 on my G7...will try and report back when I get it. The speedbooster version is coming soon, from what I understand. Compare versions here and here.
  17. Hey guys, just a shoutout for this pretty impressively featured iOS app. Was surprised to learn about it through Caleb Pike's video below, as it had been released for a while. Sure it doesn't replace a true monitor, but you get a whole lot of professional functionality to practice with (waveforms, vectorscope, anamorphic desqueeze, LUT support). If you would like to see an Android version, just drop the developer a line to let him know there is interest. Homepage here https://www.adamwilt.com/fieldmonitor/
  18. I guess it depends on you priorities. Both combo's give you roughly the same field of view, both are sharp. The Nikons + SB will give you al lot more light and more shallow DOF. But they will be a quite lot more expensive, and the whole package will be significantly larger/longer/heavier than when using the Sigma lenses. (BTW, the Kowa needs to be well aligned to be able to perform at wide open apertures, see Tito's video on the sharpness fix).
  19. Well as we're talking about a compact camera, a compact lens solution seems fitting and so: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1334046-REG/slr_magic_slrac_40133_anamorphot_1_33x_40_adapter.html 1.33 though. And mounting will be an issue with any lens on the RX100 There is also the AIvascope, 1.75x

    Thanks! Large front optic seemed promising concerning wide-angle coverage, but alas.

    Hey @au8ust, @Hans Punk and @Phil, sorry to dig up this old thread but a copy of this lens was up for auction. How did you end up liking it? Any good? Or is the unresolved nature of this thread indicative of it's meager performance? ;-)
  22. I think the first two are the same actually (although the price differs significantly at B&H, must be a mistake, same type number). The third one is the new, compact one.
  23. The new 5" smallHD Focus is a monitor only (so no recording) but it has different desqueeze options.
  24. Don't discard some mighty fine APS-C glass you can use, and that DPAF is great.
