I have a GH5 and am thinking of purchasing the Ronin S. I have a native mount, focus-by-wire lens (20mm f1.7). I was wondering if putting a speedbooster on the GH5 would allow me to use compatible Canon lenses on my camera with the follow focus?  Thanks!

I'm using the GH5 with Metabones .64 and Sigma 18-35. It works most of the time. Ronin-s and the GH5/S is not fully compatible due to the issues with the follow focus and rec/stop button continuing to stop working after about 5 min and sometimes less

I heard that with GH5 it stops working if you use an external monitor. And anyway I know that they are working on a firmware to correct. Viltrox is similar to Metabones, has the same automation, so I think I work well with Viltrox

This fixed my issues with using an external monitor. I use it for push to focus and start/stop record along with the external focus motor for zoom on the sigma 18-35

I use the external follow focus to zoom with the Sigma 18-35 attached to a metabones .64. You can also use it for focus too. With the new wire I had no problems with the record/stop button not working. I recorded for about 1 1/2 hours.

With the external follow focus you don't need the usb c cable and ou don't run into the black screen issue when using an external monitor.

However, I do not use external monitors and only use fixed optics, so NO zoom. My question is: using fixed optics and Speedbooster, with the USB cable, can I adjust the manual focus directly from the gimbal without using an external motorized servo focus? Thank you

Yes, you can. I use the existing wheel with speedbooster.
