my first camera was GH4 and due to my company's preference towards Canon back then i had to buy Metabones Speedbooster S. Back then had no Speedbooster Ultra, but works perfectly.
Fast forward till now, I bought a GH5 and thinking about getting the native lens.
I love prime lenses, great choice for commercial work and conceptual shooting.
But Zoom Lenses is damn useful for run and gun shooting solo.
Now I'm torn with a prime or a zoom lens.
Let's say if i have 6k,
and i have to choose between
Olympus Zuiko PRO F2.8 12-35 IS, Veydra Prime 12mm T2.2, Leica Nocticron 42mm (damn tight 85mm but beautiful), or Leica Lumix 12-60 mark II.
The reason I'm considering zoom lenses is because the Dual IS, having a gh5, i want to fully utilize my gear. But, the Primes are freakin' awesome in terms of cinematic quality.
So many sacrifices, so many trade offs for each of them.
which one is the best?
Then you can go buy all the F0.95 primes to deal with low light and DOF stuff. I have a Voigtlander 10.5mm F0.95, super bright, very wide while looking still linear. But these Voigtlander lenses are a bit too expensive (and also somewhat big for m43 lenses) so trying Mitakons, which are not bad at all. The focus peaking works well so these lenses so them focus pulls easily.
Native m43 lenses are great because they are so small you can bring your whole collection to a shoot without thinking it will take up too much space. DSLR lenses with speed booster you'll probably only want to bring no more than 3 lenses.
