When DJI released the Inspire 2 they also released the Zenmuse X5S camera. A brand new upgrade over the X5 and X5R which are not compatible with the Inspire 2 (sorry Inspire 1 guys looking to upgrade and save a bit of cash!)
One of the best things about the Zenmuse X5S is the fact it still takes Micro Four Third Lenses, but only 8 specific ones. let's take a look!
Listed below are the 8 MFT lenses that are supported by the Zenmuse X5S. Do keep in mind however, a balancing ring is needed for some lenses. We've provided links to the lens (where possible) if you wish to purchase the lens from our friends over at London Camera Exchange.
- Olympus M.Zuiko 12mm/2.0
- DJI MFT 15mm/1.7 ASPH
- Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm/1.8
- Panasonic Lumix 15mm/1.7
- Olympus M.Zuiko 25mm/1.8
- Panasonic Lumix 14-42mm/3.5-5.6 HD
- Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm/1.8
- Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18mm/4.0-5.6
As a company, Aerial Motion Pictures has chosen these lenses to be included with their Inspire 2 kit because they give a broad variation for aerial photography and filming, whilst having great optics.
If the Inspire 2 with the X5S lens is out of your price range then read our blog for an independent analysis of which DJI's consumer drones are best suited for filming .
