Got myself some new glass for Christmas. I do prefer native lenses but the Sigma Speedbooster combo works really well! Screengrabs from GH5 + Speedbooxter XL + Sigma 35/1.4 + Black Pro Mist 1/4. 

Edit. Oh yeah, thanks to @jase and @kidzrevil for introducing me to Black Pro Mist, and other, filters.

Need to buy that combo in 3 .. 2 .. 1 ..

Just got a Voigtlander 40mm 1.2. Haven't had a chance to test in video yet. But DAMN

A few stills from a shoot last night all on the Pocket 4K XL and CZ 35mm 2.8.

40mm is just the perfect focal length for me, I like it a lot. When I heard that Voigtländer created a lens with such crazy aperture I was sold. If I werent that invested in M43 and preferred Panasonic over Sony, I would be tempted to make the switch just for this lens. Perfection.

I also love the focal length, perfect for me as well.  My favorite lens was the Voigtlander 40mm f2 Ultron before this. I made the mistake of renting the 1.2, now I have to figure out what to sell to keep it :) The subject separation is insane.

The Canon 35mm f1.8 LTM can get some (imo lovely) swirl even with a m4/3 camera (the old gm1). 

I wasn't blown away on the FF A7. It was decent on the APS-H Leica. But definitely cool on MFT. Will have to try it on APS-C this week.

My favorite go-to-always-on photography lens is the Canon EF-M 22mm/f2. It's so good - with distortion-free light wide-angle optics, good sharpness even wide open, fast and silent autofocus in an incredibly small pancake design - that I switched to EOS-M as my street photography/always-in-my-bag camera system. (With the EOS-M100, there is finally a really good compact body. That said, I use Sony A7 for full frame/low light photography & MFT/Blackmagic for video). 

Since Mattias is posting his dog...

I had to sell my G7, so to get the most out of my EOS M, I'm sticking to crop mode with c-mount lenses. I've added a Cosmicar 6mm 1.2 and Tokina 12.5-75mm 1.2 lenses to my c-mount lens collection. I tested all of them along with my Meteor 5-1 17-69mm 1 lens from my K3 16mm camera. All are tested wide open. I don't plan on shooting wide open all the time, but I wanted to test sharpness and DOF at wide open apertures.

Tokina 12.5-75mmmm at 12.5mm

So, as much as I love my Canon lenses, I am having a lot of fun messing around with vintage lenses and ML Raw. I still cannot believe how amazing the Minolta 35mm 1.8 is on the 5D3. Here are a few more shots...

My next big goal is to convert a 58mm 1.2. But in the meantime, I think I’m going to buy a Helios... it is one vintage lens that has eluded me for the past 5 years. I found one that is listed as New Other in EF Mount? Did the Soviets make a Helios in the EF Mount? I believe it’s the 44-M 7... maybe? Also has anyone used any of the new Zenit Helios lenses? I saw a 50mm 1.2 that looks intriguing. 

And here’s one more from the Minolta.

Also I want to add so there isn’t any confusion to some users that are unaware... Minolta lenses will not adapt to Canon EF without having the lens modified. There are adapters but they have a corrective glass inside that is not of good quality.
