In case you weren't already aware, this won't fit on speedboosters as the back of the lens will hit the glass. The same thing happens with the 10-18 EF-S. Luckily, you can hack the 10-18 to make it work, but not sure if that's possible with the 18-135.

Completely off topic but I seem to remember you are based in Utrecht.

Hope you and yours are unaffected mate.

Is this the case with the lens regain also?

I assume so. That is the case with Metabones and Viltrox, so don't see why it'd be any different. The hack is easy, but you won't be able to sell the lens down the line really.

@BTM_Pix - Wow, how did you know that? Thanks for asking, I'm all good, but there's not much info right now. The police here were on strike today - it ended very quickly - so either it was preplanned or the fucker got lucky. Either way, he's not been caught yet. People have been asked to stay off the roads as much as possible to keep them clear for emergency vehicles.

Utrecht is one of the best places to live! Didn't know anything happened there. Have friends there also. Can't believe people are so stupid in the 21st century. Can't wait to skip to the 24st century and the Federation!

So, for EF full frame lenses, I get the 0.64X metabones?

Good to hear.

I've spent a fair amount of time in Utrecht over the years and I've always been very fond of the place.

Sorry for the alarming stalker thing ! I remembered from the LS300 forum on DVInfo.net

Haha, no problem, just took me aback a little. And yeah, it's a great place to live, but sad it's in the news for something so shitty. 

So about this camera huh?

Yes, I think that's right. Since the 18-135 is a crop lens, if you do decide to hack it, you'll get vignetting with this booster.

I assume this has probably been discussed a lot but I am curious what glass you guys are using with the P4K?

I assume there are a lot of Sigma 18-35mm users and native M4/3 lenses attached to the business end of your P4K, but is anyone using cinema lenses or rare vintage lenses, or even some oddball Franken-adapted lenses?

I’d love to see some samples if possible.

The only lenses that I haven't put on it as yet are the motley collection of Berlin flea market M42 lenses that I've acquired over the past few years and a Mamiya 645 Medium Format 35mm lens.

But it is only just before 1:30 in the afternoon here so you never know.

Sorry if I am braking your balls guys, but this week I will order a few lenses and I want to make it right.

I will have the lens regain/metabones 0.64X and probably some adapters (no speedboosters)

I am considering:

1) Samyang full frame Canon kit (the cheap one!)

2) Sigma 18-35 (because everyone owns one!)

3) Tokina 11-16 or 11-20

4) Canon 70-200 f4 IS or the new nano 70-300

5) probably some native PZ.

As you see I want to cover most bases.

Do you have any suggestions, advices? Shall I invest more on primes and less on zooms, or vice versa?

It rather depends on your shooting style.

I've found a 250-300 grams lens a good match for P4K handheld comfort when 550-600 grams weight seems a bit some other camera ballpark range when coupled to the 722 gr. native camera : )

Manual lenses work pretty accurate with that big monitor and effective focus assist bonus and 7artisans lenses the best bargain you can find on the light side to match the heavier cine-style Rokinon offer.

I am not familiar with the 7artisans series, at all. 6 Samyang lenses is 3000€ here, and you get a hard case also!

As you can see, I care for 3 situations.

A full set of - cheap - primes for fully rigged and controlled environment.

A few zooms for semi-run n gun or events.

And 1-2 native m43 zoom lenes(1 pz for sure) for smaller and lighter form factor.

I have the 35mm f2 and 50mm f1.1 in M mount.

The M to MFT adapter I've got doesn't play particularly nice (infinity focus issues) but I've ordered a different one so I'll let you know with regard to the Pocket 4K next week.

Lightweight helps. Touchscreen AF works as silk even though depends a bit on the lens firmware you pick. They don't behave all the same. The newer the better.

What deal have you ordered?

Is anyone using the Braw player on Mac? I can't get it to work with the .sidecar files, whether they're in the same folder as the clip or not, I always see the raw video, with none on my colours etc. I've done a grade in Resolve, and clicked the 'Update Sidecar' button in the raw properties, but still nothing. Any ideas why?

On my GH5 with the Metabones 0.67XL speedbooster, both the Sigma 18-35, and the Tokina 11-16 vignette a lot on the wide ends.

Dunno how different the BM 4K Pocket would be...

I use the .71 speed booster. I don’t get vignetting.
