Lens turbo m43 + Nikon 14-24 2.8 vs Lumix 12-32 3.5-5.6

Recommended Posts

There are virtually no information about matching Nikkor 14-24 2.8 with speedboosters/focal reducers.  Thus, I would like to share with my rough, unscientific and spontaneous test: OOC .jpg, handheld, GX80, Standard -3/-0/-0/-3.  This is a comparison between: (a) Nikkor 14-24 at 14 mm, 2.8 + Mitakon Lens Turbo v.2 vs. (b) Lumix kit lens 12-32 at 12 mm, 3.5.  IMHO there is a clear difference between these two sets, including that Nikkor is wider :) I would be more than happy to hear your thoughts.

I have almost no focus peaking when lens turbo is on GX80.  Please let me know what I should change to improve this.  There is no problem with focus peaking when using the kit lens with MF mode on.

Although there is no major play between Lens Turbo and GX80, I am considering Fotga as a cheap and small lens-support solution.  Do you have any other recommendation?

PS. IBIS with GX80+adapted lens is really good.

Mitakon is the best focal reducer in this price range.....RJ LENS TURBO IS CRAP, if someone is deciding what to get avoid this RJ has blue cast  all over the place. 

well I don't know what is the look you are going for...the first sets looks more cinematic to me, the second set is more videoish...

I prefer the cleaner kit lens look as I don't want the cinematic look. It can be made wider with a step up ring and Ricoh GW-1, which works surprising well and changes it from 12mm to 9.5mm. I usually use a longer lens but the 12-32 is so small it is always worth taking along.
