Panasonic 14mm F2.5 - Distortion?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Would love to have a lens on my BMPCC that will make it literally pocketable - the Panasonic 14mm F2.5 looks like a good candidate.

Only thing I'm worried about is distortion. it seems to exhibit some heavy barrel distortion in stills shots I've seen (non-corrected RAWs).

Given the BMPCC has a smaller sensor than MFT, I guess the barrel distortion will not be as bad/obvious.

Does anyone have any experience with this lens on their BMPCC?

Would love to know your thoughts

It's the one lens that would make the Pocket Cinema Camera actually pocketsize. For this reason I believe the 14-mil is even being portrait on the retail packaging of the BMPCC.

Does the 14mm pancake have the best characteristics in the world? Probably not, but it does make for a pretty nifty combo. Especially if you want to keep drawn attention to a minimum and can live with the rendering. And 14mm f/2.5 is pretty sensible on the BMPCC too. So sure, to borrow Julian's words: go for it.
