    There will be a speedbooster designed specifically for the Pocket 4K.

    Planning to get the Viltrox EF-M2 for Pocket 4K too. It costs 120€ in Europe and Metabones version costs 850€. Not a hard decision even if it has a bit softer corners.

    I also wonder if Metabone are going to design a specific EF to MFT Pocket 4k Speedbooster.... or is it the "Ultra 0.71x" ?!.
    People say the ultras is working fine. But Metabone allways releases a specific adapter for Blackmagic. Hmmm.
    About the Viltrox. I only use manual lenses. But i heard about invitinity problem that can be fixed... but not allways.
    And after some 3 month some looses the screw inside of the Viltrox adapter. No Cool. But maybe can be fixed with some tape

    This guy tested the Viltrox EF-M2 against the Metatbones XL and actually found the corners on the Viltrox better. Using fast lenses, the Metabones seemed to have an advantage though.

    BS. Viltrox costs 190,- Euros on amazon. The Metabone Ultra 760,- Euro on Amazon.
    I will try the Viltrox for sure. I am not a Metabone Fanboy. Got on on my Micro Cinema Camera..
    but not using the pins. (destroyed my sigma contacts.) It is good to have some competion.
    Hope the VILTROX will work with my Nikon Nikkor and Zeiss Lenses. If not I will send
    it back and buy the Metabone. But I hope Viltrox will work.

    I am kinda glad that I only buy the Pocket in Dezember 2018. (maybe Dezember. Who knows)
    And I hope to see some more "Viltrox vs. Metabone" tests. Good tests where people
    are testing different lenses, different f-stops. Sharpnes in the middle and corner, etc.
    I have seen so many stupid reviews where people clearly have
    no clue how to handle this camera.

    To add a bit more info here, they cost about 90-100 USD in large enough quantity through Alibaba. A lot of resellers only mark them up by around 30-40 USD.

    Sure. But amazon is pretty good to compare price. I donīt care about "Aliexpress" or whatever.
    190,- for Viltrox. Metabone is 760,- Euro.
    I donīt think it it is fair to reduce the price of the viltrox by 70 Euros and increase the price for metabone by 90 Euros.

    I said 120€ in Europe. How hard that is to understand? You can buy it for 190€. I bought it for 120€ with 2 year warranty
