GH4 4K Wide Angle: Tokina 11-16mm w/ Metabones Speedbooster OR Olympus 12mm MFT Prime???

Anybody out there who has shot 4K on the GH4 with both the Tokina 11-16mm (Nikon mount version)/Speedbooster and an Olympus 12mm MFT prime that could tell me how they compare in terms of sharpness, color, etc.?

If my calculations are correct, I believe the Tokina at 16mm would give close to the same FOV than the Olympus (26mm vs. 27.6mm).

Trying to make a quick decision for an end-of-year purchase and would appreciate any input!

I have a GH4, but haven't shot with those specific setups. That said, there are several examples you can look at to get an idea which lens you prefer:

Shot with Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 and Speedbooster:

DELTA - AFTERMOVIE - DJ ANTOINE by VENOMPICTURES


[Test] Tokina 11-16mm lens test // GH4: Tokina 11-16 by Kusushiro0322


Shot with Oly 12mm f2 (due to its compact form factor and light weight, this lens is really popular for aerial and gimbal shooters):

Jukola Start 2014 - Kuopio, Finland by KopterCam

Skatepark. Ronin and GH4 by Pixelwork


Personally, even though it will cost you $94 more, my vote would be for the $418 Nikon mount Tokina plus a $475 Speed Booster XL for the added flexibility provided by the zoom.

Hope this is helpful and Happy New Year!

So how did you work out on this purchase? I shoot mainly with the GH4 and the Olympus 12. I love the combination. I have a speed booster but use it with Canon lenses.
