Hi All,
Just bought a pansonic G80/5 after using canon 40D for many years. Got the kit lens with the 80 but have a mixture of lenses from canon,sigma and tamron for the 40D. I still intend to use the 40D but would like to expand lens range for 80. Would it be best to get viltrox for 80 or to buy native lenses?

Sorry should have stated it would be the speedbooster version.

Someone I know tried a speedbooster, but wasn't particularly impressed by the results, particularly from the unknown brands. Sharpness was good, but chromatic aberrations were bad.

Thanks for that Derek. Have decided to get it. Fingers and everything else crossed.

Got it. Sent it back pretty promptly. Focus issues. Shame, good idea. Perhaps time will out.
