  • Canon dSLR lens that might shine with BM4k?

    I know there is no footage and until the camera comes out this is speculation but speculation it shall be.
    The ideal lens I feel would be ones that is made for APS-C which is closer to the S35 sensor that is the EF-S. This at least help limit flare that FF lens are more prone to in relation to S35 sensor size.
    I nearly sold my Canon EF-S 60mm f2.8 Macro but I have a feeling this lens might shine with the BM4k.

            If you're looking for a good all purpose lens, I definitely recommend the Canon 17-55 f/2.8 IS as others have mentioned. Awesome lens and the image stabilization is really handy. I used it quite a bit on my Sony FS100. The focus throw is a little short though.

            The Tokina 11-16 is also very nice if you want to go really wide.

                Got the Canon 17-55 f2.8 IS since 2006 when it first came out. Another lens I nearly sold. Still think Canon IS lens are built for stills and only really successful for static handheld but not for panning.

                  Arent they FF lenses? Thinking about flares on a S35 sensor.

                    Sigma 17-50mm f2.8 with IS. About half the cost of the Canon, and close to same image quality.

                    Of course, we don't know which lenses are fully compatible with the BMPC-4K yet, so the usual caution applies about not buying "expensive" accessories until you have the camera in-hand.

                      I'd go with a set of tilt shift TSE ..... if I had the money. To swing things into focus or out is huge! and to fix perspectives.

                          Very likely it will be less of a problem on the 4K. (Think of the C300 as a comparison)
