Testing the Metabones Speed Booster Ultra on Panasonic MFT cameras

The Metabones Speedbooster Ultra allows the use of Canon EF lenses on Panasonic Lumix Micro Four Thirds bodies such as the GH5, G85, G9 and GH4. It increases maximum aperture by 1 stop and makes lens 0.71x wider. I tested the Metabones Ultra on my Panasonic bodies (video here) and found that it works pretty well with the Canon EF lenses including the monster zoom lens Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM.

This combo (Metabones + Canon 100-400) was used to shoot the recent total lunar eclipse with the Pansonic GH5 and G85.
