Is the crop factor really 1.74? Or with 4K DCI it's 1.62? If it's 1.62, it's exactly the same as in BM cameras and Red, which actually is a S35 crop. The 8.8 Mp frame grab looks the same as Red. Now, getting wide on a s35 camera is always tough. But getting wider on a FF with 11-16 Tokina had also been tough. No? 

 

I just played around today with my 5Dmk4 - 4K24 and the Tokina 11-16mm 2.8 I think it will do a great job replacing my 16-35 on the full frame 1080 mode

Why not an a7S for video and an a7R for stills? That way you have two bodies, but get to share the same lenses.

That's what I have. However, the A7R2 is the favour, 2 video modes, and exellent stills. Canon camras are somewhat more snappy to shoot with (5d4 and 1dx2), the A7r2 take time to write the stills to the card, like the 5Dsr. So my two favourite camras are the A7r2 and the 1dx2. As the Canon lacks Evf, its less flexible for run and gun, but have the Dpaf which is better then A7r2 AF. The Af In A7r2 is fully useable in many situations. You can support the evf to the eye, have excellent stabilisation, 1/5 of the filezise of 4K Canon. So the ultimate combination of still and video camera has still to be made. For travels, you can pick lenses that give you less weight then a Canon. What's nice with Canon 1dx2, I can now shoot action sport and wildlife with one body, both excellent video quality and stills.

- A question: it is not possible for Metabones to make a focal reducer EF->EF just to get the full frame circle from EF lenses and reduces it to the 1,74x crop? I know that it was not possbile in the NX mount, but if they can do it for the EF...(if Brian Caldwell is reading this, maybe he can answer that)...

For NX the focal reducer IS possible, and indeed...it has beed done:

Can anyone validate whether or not a firmware update has changed the crop factor to 1.29x? http://www.canonrumors.com/crop-factor-change-for-4k-canon-eos-5d-mark-iv-included-in-coming-update-more/

They apologized for giving false hopes, the update was for C-LOG only.

That's some pretty intense chromatic aberration.

This is an old post, but yeah, the Tokina 11-16 is pretty bad in that regard. Very much an overrated lens imho, I've personally found it to have a very unpleasant look and some weird QC issues like elements getting out of whack and thus focus plane being uneven.
