get an adapter?
2

I have a metabones 0.64X adapter and think it's excellent, although I have not tested AF with it yet.

Mounting a 14mm f/2.8 lens gives 9mm f/1.8, and there are quite a few other EF mount lenses to consider. As an example, I have a small vintage 24mm f/2 lens about to arrive, it will mostly be used adapted, as a 15.4mm f/1.2.

The Viltrox 0.71X AF adapter is excellent and only costs about $150.
