M4/3 Sensors and Achieving the "Film" Look
I'm a bit of a novice, have just purchased a GH4, and have a few questions regarding the M4/3 sensor and achieving the revered "film" look. As I understand it, the M4/3 sensor is just smaller than the traditional full-frame sensor (~equivalent to 35mm), and provides a cropped image relative to a traditional full-frame sensor. Can this just be remedied by using wider lenses and/or moving the camera to achieve the same composition? Also, if I'm about to start investing in lenses, especially cine lenses, should I stick with native M4/3 options, or should I go with a Metabones EF Speedbooster/EF cine lens combo? Will the latter help me to achieve that "film" look better than a native M4/3 lens would?
