VILTROX EF-M2 Booster Adapter 0.71x Canon EF mount series lens to M43, which I’ll just refer to as the Viltrox Canon Lens Adaptor for Micro 4 thirds camera’s for the Panasonic GH5 is perhaps the Metabones killer. What exactly does this Viltrox adaptor do?
- It allows you to use Canon EF lenses for Micro 4 Third cameras like the Panasonic GH5. Check Viltrox website to see the support lens list
- It gives you a different focal length which can give you new looks for your lenses
- It gives you an additional stop of light. Example F4 becomes F2.8
It does exactly what the Metabones Speedbooster does except at a 1/3 of the cost.

Who is it for?
This product is for someone that made an investment in Canon lenses and wants to use them on their Micro 4/3 camera or get an additional stop of light. I had an exciting Canon 24-105L series F4 that I use a lot with my Canon 6D DSLR. When I damaged the Lumix Leica 12-60 during travel, getting the viltrox made cost effective sense to getting a quality workhorse lense for client interviews.
The product is made in China and cost me $300 canadian. I purchased here from Amazon and you can to. I get a small commission at no extra cost to you.
I tested the viltrox with both my Canon 50mm EF 1.4 and the 24-105 F4. I’m very happy with the results and not many issues so far. In the video you’ll get the in depth review, the actual lens math for actual focal lengths you get using the adaptor and footage samples shot in Thailand and Malaysia during Chinese new Year.
