  • Nikon 50mm 1.4 and Metabone SB issue

    Did anybody come across the problem which drives me crazy. I use a set of Nikon primes with my two Pockets cams HD and the 4K. Once I've noticed on my old Pocket with the old bmpcc SB Metabones, that my 50mm 1.4 AI lens changes iris when pulling focus, changing the exposure. It happened only with SB.
    So i sold that lens, thinking it is a lens problem. Now I got another 50mm 1.4 lens and it does the same with the new Ultra 0.71 SB and new P4K.
    Only 50mm 1.4 does that! I have 28,35,85,135, 55 macro mm lenses everything is fine. WTF? I really need a 50mm in the set. Should i buy f1.8 or f2 instead or should i get the latest AIS lens or older? Please help. Thanks !

    You must be bumping the iris control on the SB when Focusing? The focus and iris on a AIS lens are not connected.

      I know its weird, but i was using FF and the DJI motor focusing through the gimbal. In both cases only 50mm iris is effected. I have no explanation why is it happening.

        Exact same setup with the exact same issue. NOT bumping the aperture ring.
        24mm f2, 35mm 1.4, and 85mm 1.4 are all fine, but the 50mm shifts aperture when focusing.
        I have no explanation unfortunately.

          I think it must be pressure on the pin that operates the automatic aperture in analog cameras.
