    So, what? Sony uses a 35mm FullFrame sensor but shoots slowmo with a crop. Get an "economy" speedbooster: https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=mitakon+lens+turbo&_blrs=spell_check and you're good to go with super 35mm look, awesome slowmo and 4K.

    I never used a speedbooster, So as i can find online, if i understand correctly, If a lens intended for 35mm film or similarly-sized "full frame" camera sensors is connected to a camera with a Micro Four Thirds-sized sensor, it would project an image larger than the Micro Four Thirds sensor was built to accept.

    My vacation is just the first step, then this camera will be used for work ! 

  2. Hello guys,

    I really could use some help here! Let me explain my "concern" :)

    I own a 5D Mark II, and got some Canon lenses obivously (50mm 1.4 / 135mm 2.0 / 24-70mm 2.8). This camera is just old and as a video editor, I want/need a change. I'm going to travel to Japan in a few weeks (I wanna shoot as much as I can and make a video of my trip!), and I think it's an opportunity for me to switch gear, which brings me on to this :

    Today i'm looking at new canon models, the new sony a9 and the other mirrorless camera they have. Obviously i took a peek at the gh5 / a9 / a7s2 / a6500 & the 1DX Mark II (with C-LOG!!) etc... I got Canon lenses from my 5D so it helps, but I was willing to sell everything i got to make a new fresh start. But the only camera i see that can records 4K video in 60 fps is from Canon, but size is bigger/heavier, but would be a help for some real photo shoot too. I would have gone for the 1DX2 if that sensor was stabilized because when I look at A9 shots handheld, it's just amazing how smooth it is. Having a full frame would be a bonus for me, I don't know if I could "skip" it for my next camera tho.

    So yeah; I wanted some advices, from someone who's traveling or not, should i stick to canon and keep their awesome color science or should i consider a leap into Sony and then wait for a maybe a7s3 or A9s and "prey" for they 4K 60? Any sony lenses advices for video if so?

    There is only the Japan planned yet, but that camera could be useful for my work itself though (tv / web / events...)

    Hope I was clear enough,
