Im thinking about old Angenieux c mount lenses for MFT version. Anyone knows which lenses will be compatible?

Test, test, test. My guess is the vast majority won't cover. Still, I have some c-mount glass that I've been itching to try on this camera, even before I knew they were actually doing a MFT version.

As the first reply test, test, test. Could get expensive :).

Definitely need S16 versions though. Most zooms will vignette wider than 25mm on BMCC. Not sure about primes though, but I don't think they'll be 'that' much different.

C-mount lenses made for 1" format video cameras might cover. Some primes 25mm focal length and up will cover. Angenieux 16mm or S16mm zooms will not cover the sensor, it is too big. S16mm lenses will cover a 1920x1080 crop in raw, but will be useless for Prores or DNXHD recording. This is not a 16mm size sensor. It requires an 18mm image circle to cover, S16 is 14.54mm, regular 16 is 12.75mm. You could possibly use a 1.5x extender to get coverage with 16mm glass.

Is this really a thread for compatible lenses or just a C mount discussion. Otherwise there are tons of options in 4/3 that need to be discussed.
