Noktor asked me to test out their new SLR Magic Hyperprime 10mm T2.1 for MFT. Thought some people might interested to see footage, as lately most MFT tests are done on the GH4. Here's the video: It's a pretty good wide angle option for the non-Speedbooster folk. Thanks for watching!
Hello to everyone! I would like to buy some decent moderate wideangle for GH4 but have limited budget unfortunately. I came down to these 3 options: 1. Used Zuiko 14-54 f2.8-3.4 MK1 4/3 mount + electronic adapter (MMF-1 or MMF-2) - 190â‚¬ 2. New Panasonic 14mm f2.5 - 180â‚¬ 3. Used Sigma 18-50 f2.8 EX DC Macro Nikon mount - 160â‚¬ wideangle needs to be useful for both outdoor and indoor shooting. Since I allready have BMCC nikon speedbooster (0.64x) to me the best option seems Sigma 18-50 f2.8 but I cannot find anywhere how sigma behaves, especially on 18mm with the speedbooster attached (11.52mm). There is also a used Tamron 17-50 f2.8 nikon mount for 250â‚¬, but I do not want to go that far with the price if I don't have to. Advices are really welcome :) Thank you all in advance!
I'm looking for a wide angle lens to compliment my collection of Nikkor AI-s primes, the widest of which is currently a 24mm 2.8 AI-s (used on D5300 and G6 with Speedbooster - so Super-35mm crop). Obviously I need something wider and there aren't really any decent manual prime options. It sounds like the Rokinon/Samyang 14mm isn't up to much. I've narrowed it down to the Sigma 10-20mm f4-5.6 and the Tokina 11-16 f2.8. I'm currently leaning in favour of the Sigma. It's main use will be with my new monoCam (Glidecam style stabiliser), so communication with my D5300 will be handy for auto exposure (i.e. no touching the lens/camera while flying the stabiliser). Because I'll have it stopped down for use with the monocam, I won't usually need the extra speed of the Tokina (which looks pretty soft wide open anyway). The Tokina looks like it is sharper than the Sigma, but not by much at the apertures I'll be using it at. I prefer the look of the images I've seen taken with the Sigma, and I like the extra focal range. Any advice/suggestions/experience before I go ahead and buy the Sigma?
