    Im not sure if this is in the right section .. my apologies if its not

    The following is a video of my experience with the Canon efs 55-250 IS stm on the GX8 via metabones speedbooster , not so much a review , more of a demo
    This is my first video of this type so dont expect any Digital Rev or Tony Northrup type quality .. just a quick and dirty video ;)

    thanks for the review, I enjoyed watching it, just don't compare to DigitalRev or Tony Northrup as they are no quality at all.

    I wonder if a Sigma 50-500 in EOS mount would work? Or Tamron 150-600

    well they should attach without any sort of hacking ..
    i'm wondering if the 18-35 sigma works.. i might pick it up
    i already had it when i only had my canon t4i ,, and it had way to much front focus and back focus issues..which seems typical with sigma on dslr's unless you spend time with the sigma dock
    but when it did nail focus it was super sharp and bokeh was very nice,. i would say , second best lens i've owned

    but from what i read ,,front and back focus issues arent a problem with mirrorless?
