What lens to use for the combination of GH2+SPEEDBOOSTER+LA7200?

Recommended Posts

hello everyone, i just bought myself the Panasonic LA7200. and i'm shooting on a GH2 with the speedbooster adapter.

i'm considering of buying these canon FD lens but afraid it might not work; Canon FD 17mm f1.4 and 85mm f1.8

can anyone with experience of these combination share some advise?

thanks.

that 17mm may be too wide. Ive got a Canon FD 50mm f1.4 that works well with my anamorphic lens. I dont know much about the LA7200 though but I have always thought you shouldn't use anything wider than a 35mm for the taking lens

I used the Tokina 17mm fd with LA7200 and GH2. I think that was ok (if I remember right) But with Speedbooster... maybe not a good idea: Will vignette and you have to stop down anyway (at least 5.6) or image is very soft. Otherwise FDs are very good with anamorphics.

      Hey guys,
      I have a SpeedBooster for the Pocket and the Micro for sale, Canon EF lens version.
      Asking price is 450€
      I'm in Italy and I can ship to Europe for fair prices and even WW if needed (postal or UPS).
      BTW I also have a brand new Wooden Camera cage for the BMMCC plus the Wooden Camera PL Mount Pro kit for it in another thread

      $430 + $10 shipping

      Make me an offer
      Selling my Panasonic GX85.

      Perfect condition. I've had it for a year. Used it to film a wedding, a party, and home video throughout the year (camping, birthdays).
      Comes with a Lens Turbo II speedbooster, Nikon mount. This gives you a wider field of view closer to full frame.
      Also comes with #3 batteries and a dual charger.
       
      Anyone who shoots Panasonic knows their cameras have very high image quality. 4k as well as HD up to 60fps. Also has very good IBIS, great to use with manual lenses.

      Clearing out some stuff I don't use, this is a mint condition Metabones Nikon N/F to Sony E mount Ultra Speedbooster with 1 stop and .71X fov

      I don't have the container or box, will just be the speedbooster and both end caps with the support piece as shown

      Prefer local Los Angeles area pick up for $390 so you can see the adapter in person - can ship to US via PP with additional shipping and G&S fee
