Has anyone found a good lens option in the 8mm to 14mm range for the X5S? I dont like the zoom 9-18mm, is there a prime lens in this range that works?

Hey VantageAeria, we apologize that the Olympus M.Zuiko 9-18mm/4.0-5.6 doesn't meet your needs.
But we still recommend to use the lens in our compatible list since they have been fully tested, appreciate your understanding. lens.png

You might want to look at the laowa 7.5mm zero distortion, never used it but looks good.. not sure how it balances either but there is a video out there.

I heard that you have to trick this lens to work by starting the drone with a DJI certified lens and then hot swapping to the 7.5mm.

I was watching a interview with Chris Newman with Drone Pro Academy.  He's one of the top drone guys in the country.  By the way, he owns all types of drones from tiny toys to Octocopters, but in the interview he said that the Inspire 2 is his go to work horse.

That lens looks like a promising lead! Thanks.  My Inspire is also my go to, it flys like a high end sports car.

It works very well and is not so close to the gimbal like the X5!

Of course. It's just you cannot shoot CinemaDNG and Apple ProRes.
Please learn more details about these two formats here: https://www.dji.com/service/inspire-2-license-key

What is the A and B column indicate? I just purchased the Olympus 45mm and now it seems I need a balancing ring. Looks like there are 2 different rings? I am confused. Please explain.

Many thanks,

Many thanks,

You need both the 37-8 and 37-6 rings for the 1.8/45mm lens (if you are not using filter).

Many thanks,

Like rent said, you will need two balancing rings. If you would like to mount the filter, please purchase it according to our chart, then remove the BR-Ф37-6.
Balancing ring can be purchased in our online store: https://store.dji.com/product/ze ... cing-ring?vid=21751

Hello, I wonder if the Panasonic Lumix G 25mm F / 1.7 Asph lens is compatible with the x5s?

Thanks! Filipe da Gama/ Brazil.

Please check my post in 2# about the compatible list of X5S lens, this lens is not in the list, therefore the performance and the compatibility cannot be assured. Sorry for the inconvenience.
