    Hello,

    Is Olympus Zuiko 12mm heavier than stock DJI 15mm?

    I wonder if I change the lens, I lose some flight time.

    Stock 15 mm weight is 115g, and Olympus Zuiko 12mm weight is 130g. 15g in between, it would be almost the same flight time.

    15g might upset the balance of the gimbal though

    The 12mm is a nice lens. Also lets you capture a wider angle than the 15mm at a lower altitude which in this arena means a lot...:)

    The only issue is the lens hood. Bought one from B & H and liked it. It was mentioned that the weight of that hood was not good on the gimbal motors by a post from another thread. I have had no issues on all the imagery I have used it for. Kevin

    Yes Chnjab is right. I couldn't get it on with the filters I have. That is the hood. I still use it when needed.

    @The Editor I think this thread would be better under the Zenmuse X5 heading.
