What do you mean by "automatic"? As in automatic exposure, autofocus etc.? If so, the answer is no. The MFT version of the BMCC is fully manual.

The mount is passive on the MFT mount version of the BMCC. It can't control electronic lenses. So if you have a MFT lens that has an electronic aperture or uses "fly by wire" focus control, it will not work on the camera.

This model is in ZF (nikon), ZE (canon), ZK (pentax) versions.
So you need a converter.
