    I don't know if anyone has posted about this yet but Metabones has new Speedboosters on their site specifically designed for the BMPCC 4k. Price is same as original BMPCC Speedbooster $649.

    I'm surprised there aren't any comments about this, maybe most users have already purchased the existing m4/3 boosters or even Viltrox to use on thier BMPCC 4K's

    Still, would be very interesting to see some sample images with the new boosters

    I was hoping they will come up with one speed booster for the BMP4K that will accommodate both APS-C and FF lenses so this is disappointing so I'm staying with my existing speed booster - no sense of spending money on new replacement. .

    I suspect a lot of people already owned a general m43 speedbooster even before they bought the BMPCC 4k... or the bought one soon after the BMPCC 4k was launched. I am a bit more discerning about my optics so I wait for the Blackmagic specific optics.

    The Speed Booster ULTRA 0.71x is the one you want. It works with FF and "many" APS-C lenses. It does not have as wide a field of view nor let in as much light as the 0.64x but optically it is better.

    I ordered mine at 1 AM about an hour after they launched. I got it from Hong Kong in 5 days! Unfortunately I have a partner and he has our camera 5 hours away. I though about driving to see him so he can use it instead of our Viltrox but he is working on a passion project so it isn't fiscally responsible.
