The new Mitakon Canon EF to MFT Lens Turbo adapter can be ordered on eBay (Click here). It basically does the same job of a Metabones Speed Booster but costs much less (and will not match the Metabones quality).
UPDATE: Personal View has a long topic about these alternative adapter. It’s interesting to read it to learn about their strength and weaknesses.
Having shot with multiple systems and hundreds of lenses, the Nocticron is right there at the top among the best lenses I’ve ever shot with. It is extremely sharp right from f/1.2, has gorgeous bokeh, low distortion, incredibly high image contrast for a fast lens, super fast autofocus, optical stabilization and a pro-grade build. If you are a Micro 4/3 shooter and want speed, background blur and optical quality, you can’t do much better than the 42.5mm Nocticron.
No doubt, great lens! Wish we could get more of these…and if possible for a bit lower price too :)

Zacuto posted that interesting GH4 chat with Panasonic manager Matt Frazer. A real must see if you want to learn more about the GH4! There are a couple of very “honest” answers from Matt about the real ISO improvement and native ISO of the sensor.
