  1. #1 Viltrox EF-M2 electronic speedbooster 
    So the Viltrox EF-M2 is getting al the positive reviews from GH5 users as a metabones speedbooster alternative with autofocus and auto Iris controls!

    Now I am curious: has somebody tested this adapter with the bmpcc / bmmcc?

    Yes.
    The Viltrox offering will have to pass serious measure AS A LENS first and foremost. Metabones has had many competitors and almost all of them were optically DISMAL.
    At less than 1/3 the price of the Metabones version....let's just say I'm not super optimistic.
    Cameras: Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Blackmagic Pocket Camera (x2), Panasonic GH2 (x2), Sony RX100 ii, Canon 6D, Canon T2i,
    Mics: Sennheiser, AKG, Shure, Sanken, Audio-Technica, Audix
    Lights: Every Chinese clone you can imagine

    Me as well, but the reviews on youtube seem realy optimistic. So far I can't find any examples with the blackmagic pocket and micro. And Viltrox hasn't responded yet.
