The MFT to EF speed booster retails for $599 US and is available now through the metabones website. We should have them in stock here very soon.

“In 4K mode on the GH4 we end up somewhere between 1.7x and 1.8x crop depending on the type of 4K resolution selected. The 4096 x 2160 DCI 1.85:1 mode of course uses more of the sensor area to record the image thus the crop factor is a little less. In stills mode and with the internal 1080p recording the crop factor with Speed Booster is 1.5x, or actually in cinematography terms a 1.0x because it is Super 35mm.”

    I wonder if they will work on the BMCC and BMPCC, not to mention the AF100?
