  • Super light travel rig for bmpcc - What one lens?

    This has no doubt been asked in the past though I'd love to hear what the current train of thought is.

    I'm also about to go on an impulsive shopping run to the local lens shop (I'd normally research for days online), so hopefully any replies will come in sooner rather than later.... :-)


    I'm heading off on a 16 day road trip across Europe (with the kids in Tow).

    I'd love to take my full BMPCC rig (Sigma 18-35mm and a Tokina) but also want to:

    - Travel super light.
    - Not get bogged down changing lenses


    So I'm thinking I'd like to invest in a pancake MFT lens or a Nikon lens to go on my Metabones Speedbooster. Optical Stabilisation would be a real plus.

    I'll then go super minimal, i.e. no cage (I'll miss the top handle), 2 x 128Gb SD cards, Variable ND filter, Spare batteries (*Plus charger to keep in the camper van), Zacuto viewfinder, Mini tripod (can also act as shoulder rig, poor mans stabiliser). Small camera bag.


    Any words of wisdom very welcome.

    ...and I seem to have gone full circle... back to the first lens I ever had with the camera.... a 20mm Panasonic MFT 1.7

      If you want more flexibility: the 12-35mm Panasonic.

        I can't imagine there's any better choice than the 12-35

        Maybe the 14-42 if you are on a budget.

          The 12-35 would be my first choice.
