    I just sold my Panasonic 25 1.4 and I want to go for Metabones Speedbooster XL m43-Canon and for some 7-800Euro lens (new or maybe used).

    I have a GH4 and I want to make interviews and film in the coffeeshops (a coffee blog project)

    Today, in october 2015, there is a better lens for my purpose, comparing with the Sigma 18-35 1.8? I prefer a fast aperture and a variable ND filter, because the bokeh is better. On my Summilux 25 1.4, at F1.4 the background seems almost clear, at 2-3meters between subject and background. I make an experiment with Canon 6D and a Sigma lens, and at F2.0 the backgrond is almost blured, at the same distance to the subject. So, when the people say "GH4 with m4-3 lenses deliver a clinical image, like tv news" they are right.

    The only problem with the XL is the corners will be black in photo mode, in video the crop is such that it shouldn't be an issue.

    (it's an APS-C lens)
