Canon to Panasonic change

Postby chrishull3 » 04 Jan 2011 14:01

Hard to believe but as my 550D had another small problem Amazon have given me a refund which i did not ask for or expect so basicaly its 6 months free videoing, i have decided not to get another 550 despite i could get one for lower than my refund but a Panasonic GH2 instead, i dont want to sell my lenses and dont worry about auto focus, i am not sure what reasonably priced canon to panasonic lens adaptors there are, any info would be helpfull.Chris

There are plenty of reasonable adapters out there on Ebay for £25 approx.
Note that the adapters result in Canon lenses effectively doubling the focal length on the GH1. I'm not 100% sure the same applies to the GH2, but I think so. Bit of a nuisance that.

But none of those cheap adaptors give any kind of control with EF lenses,there is reports of one in the near future that will cost around £600 uk sterling which would be of use with a large lens collection but my total EF lenses are worth less than that second hand.

Chris,

I'm also looking at a GH2 for video. Have you purchased it and tried it out? I'd be most grateful to hear your opinions of it.
