22mm

Thanks a Lot for the comparison. Do you have the 27mm 2.8 ? Despite diferent focal lenght would be Nice to see dof one can get compared to the 22mm f2 ( i say that from a gx85+20mm1.7 perspective).  I would love to hear about Mic input comaprison and which 1080p you've liked the most. Thanks

Something that surprised me is that there's actually a setting called "Highlight Tone Priority" that's not too dissimilar to Fuji's DR setting. 

 

 

Cool so it works on video? That is good to know!

 

Regarding bokeh, I found that fast lens tend to produce better bokeh than smaller aperture if they are at same aperture, and of course there is 1.5x vs 1.6x crop which also contribute a bit.

I bought the Viltrox EF-EOS M2 and the EF 17-40mm f4

The adapter weights 140g and the lens is about 480g, so together it's just over 600g. It does look a bit odd but it feels alright due to the M6 having a decent grip for a small camera.

Build quality of the adapter is good. There's no play on either end and it's not too tight either. It feels solid yet is quite light (most speed boosters are over 200g). 

The autofocus works really well. Pretty similar to the native 22mm, just a little noisier. It can be heard in video if the room is silent but otherwise it's not a problem.

Central sharpness is good. Edge is poor up until f8.

Weirdly, the edge sharpness at 40mm is worse than at 17mm.

Overall the adapter makes a great cheapskate option for full frame but I've realised it's a bit surplus to my requirements right now so im returning it. And with lenses like these it's better to have a camera with a bigger grip.

Quite surprising how bad it is comparatively at 40mm.

Did you shoot that from the roof of Mount Pleasant car park ?

Last time I tried to shoot something off there, I was asked to vacate the premises in no uncertain terms !

Yes. I've shot from there a couple of times now and no one's approached me about it yet 😮
