Best Wide Angle Lens Adapter | No Vignette, Great Quality | Panasonic 8-18mm Alternative for G85/GH5
Been looking into wide angle lenses for our Panasonic G85 and they all seem to be iffy. They’re either very expensive ($1000) and missing crucial features such as image stabilization (Panasonic 8-18mm), weather sealing (Panasonic 7-14mm), or less expensive ($400), but require manual focus. To fix this we picked up the NiSi 0.7x Wide Angle Lens Adapter for 58mm thread lenses for our Panasonic G85 12-60mm kit lens and very impressed by the quality.
The adapter is a big chunky piece of glass which weighs around 300g, and has a very solid feel to it. The best thing about it however is that it just works, the quality is great, there’s no vignette and you get to keep all the features of the kit lens - autofocus, image stabilization.
Videos shot with the Wide Angle Lens
- This video was shot in 4K 30fps, however we also tested the lens in Full HD, and there’s no vignette there too.
- The seller on Aliexpress states that the lens is for Canon cameras, however we tested it out on a Panasonic and it works great.
