Hello,

 

I'm looking for a good full frame lens to use it with my both camera (GH5 + METABONES Speed Booster XL 0.64x Canon EF) and for my canon 5d mark IV.

 

Everybody told me that the sigma 18-35 1.8 is the best lens for gh5 and metabones but it's not a full frame lens, i like the canon EF 16-35 2.8 mark II because it's sharpe and cheaper than the canon EF 16-35 2.8 mark III.

 

I'm gonna use the lens for videography and photography so any suggestions for a good lens would be helpful.

 

 

- Does the canon EF 16-35 2.8 mark II work good with my GH5 + METABONES Speed Booster XL 0.64x Canon EF ?

 

- Does the Autofocus work with this lens ?

 

- What about the vignetting ?

 

Thanks

Tough problem, you've got two different sensor sizes, even with the focal reducer.

 

A 16-35 zoom lens is pretty wide to begin with, especially on full frame.

 

In theory, the Canon EF should work on either camera. The Autofocus should work as well because it's a Canon brand lens. I've never had issues with Metabones not communicating autofocus.
