    Sorry, yes. I shoot with the Tokna too and the Sigma 18-35mm and 50-100mm on Speed Boosters. What I wanted to convey is that a SB won't work on this lens as it doesn't come in an ef mount.

    Sorry for bringing up this old post. I just purchased the 7artisans 25mm 1.8f for my Pocket (and soon - Pocket 4K), and I'm absolutely looking forward to it. Speaking of Meike, I think they got one in 12mm 2.8f Ultrawide, too!

    I'm quite surprised no one has put up any examples with the lenses in the Pocket.

    Olympus makes a very compact 12mm f/2.0 that is very good also, minimal distortion. For an even wider AOV, SLR Magic 10mm Hyperprime can not be beat, at its low price point, and it is set up for Cinema shooting.
    Cheers

    Does anyone have some photos, video example of some sort. Would really appreciate it..that being said, I'm in need of a 25mm that I'll use for anamorphic x2, and crop the vignetting part.

    Here's one that I did. Nothing fancy as I yet to take it with me and do some shoots. Shot on BMPCC w/ 7artisans 25mm 1.8f - Graded via Resolve w/ FilmConvert Fuji Eterna.

    Hope it helps.

    Check out the Panasonic 25mm f1.7.

    Curious if anyone has tested these little lenses with follow focus, they are so compact could you even get it lined up, and if so are there any custom solid gears available. I have the 7artisans 25 and will probably add the meike/neewer 35 and 50, the quality is so good I don't feel the need to spend 5-10 the price just for a big lens with gears. Not a big deal as I don't even own a FF, but live focus pulling is tricky because they are so small. Also has anyone heard anymore about the Loawa 17mm 1.8 that was announced last fall, size wise it should match well to the others, and most of theses Chinese lenses seem neutral colour wise, I expect it to be a higher price point, but spending a bit more on one wouldn't be a big deal.

    I have both the Panna Leica D and DG version of these 25mm lenses. I added a flex FF gear to both, and while,you can focus the smaller SD lens OK, the ,anger D model is more accurate and easier to pull,a manual focus with. I also liked the IQ of the larger lens more. The smaller DG works better with AF setups, would be interesting to see how it performs on the new PCC4K in AF mode.
    I used both on the AF100, and currently use the DG on a Pen F which works well, where the smaller lens is an advantage.

    The original FT, D version is about the same size as a Veydra 25mm, but a little lighter, even with the MFT adapter attached.

    I'm not talking about the Veydra knock off, I'm asking about the tiny Meike, Neewer, 7Artisans pancakes that are about the size of old Leica rangefinder lenses. I have the 7Artisans 25 1.8, and find it quite good optically on original pocket, don't have 4k yet, but it is so small that you almost get your thumb in the shot, almost like using switars on a bolex. Just curious if anyone has successfully rigged for follow focus, either traditional or remote. Also considering switching to the meike version as I didn't realize that the 7 artisans focused Nikon style. They are cheap enough to just grab without worrying about selling. I don't currently have a focus wheel, so thinking of just going nucleus n, maybe rigged from top to squeeze in.

    Just need lauwa to hurry up, and release the 17 1.8 they announced last year for a nice compact mft set.
