    Adapters available for PL and EF mount lenses.

For me the biggest advantage is the sensor (S35 - similar to APS-C from Canon cameras) but with MFT mount which allows to use pretty much any lens on the market. It also gives you ability to use focal reducers to get full frame like FOV. It's crucial for wide fisheye setups. It also has great 120fps slow motion.


What do you guys think? I'm looking for some skate footage to convince myself.

Wow that looks extremely valid, Could be a good way for skating to move on from 720p and still have regular long lens zoom
