Need Some Panasonic GH3 Lens Advise

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I recently picked up a GH3 and am wondering what lens setup to purchase.

 

I have done some research and am thinking about these two options.

 

1. Metabones Speedbooster with a Sigma 30mm 1.4 II (Nikon Mount) as I had the old Sigma 30mm 1.4 on my 550D and loved it! 

 

2. Voigtlander 25mm f0.95 and the SLR Magic 12mm f1.6.

 

Would love to know what you guys think!

 

Thanks  :)

the Sigma is a superb lens I use mine alot , Im not a fan of f0.95 lenses as they all tend to be soft fully open (unusable in my book so whats the point for paying top $$)

 

Speed boosters are very very useful I have 3 in different mounts and I now dont ever shoot wiith out them on my Panasonics

I think it starts with you wanting native lenses or not; if size and weight is an issue (for instance, if you want to put it on a stabiliser or an aerial vehicle). Option 1 is perfectly fine if you intend to get other lenses with it. The speed booster isn't cheap, but its value goes up with each adapted lens you add to your toolbox.

      The camera is in excellent condition without any marks. It comes in its original box with all original accessories including battery, charger, sync cable, strap, manual, etc. The 8Sinn cage is wonderful- it fits the camera like a glove and gives it plenty of mounting points for accessories. Price includes insured shipping to anywhere in continental U.S. via USPS Priority Mail. 

      Payment using Paypal or Cash App.

      - PRICE: $599
      - STRETCH: 2X
      - FOCUS: Double-focus
      - PAYMENT METHOD: Paypal (fees to be paid after initial payment)
      - LOCATION: Switzerland
      - SHIPPING: Not included
      - INCLUDED: Redstan rear adapter with foot support and Redstan front clamp (value = $100).
      - CONDITION: No scratches and no fungus. Clean glass with the exception of a couple tiny spots on the rear glass. A couple of VERY light scratches that are only noticeable under a light source. Body shows some signs of wear but it works perfectly. Coatings are not flamboyant but the lens creates these signature purple/orange flares perfectly well. I wasn't able to get 1000% tack sharp images, so the lens might need to be serviced. It gives reasonably sharp results though, and my issue might actually come from my taking lens. Bought it from a fellow member of the Anamorphic Shooters group on FB and barely used it because of a decrease in filmmaking activity.
      - COMMENTS: I can send some footage via wetransfer. Open to offers.
