MFT BMCC Lens starter kit

PostTue Dec 18, 2012 1:11 am


I see lots of people talking about lens kits for their EF BMCC but was wondering what the MFT users will be using with their BMCC (once it arrives).

This is my first video camera purchase (figured I'd invest in this over a DSLR just based on the RAW workflow and the dynamic range). I already have a 35mm SSC f2 and 50mm f1.4 FD lens which I plan on using with this camera but was wondering if I should continue building an FD lens kit or look into other lenses since MFT is such a versatile mount.

Would love to hear your answers.

Thanks a ton,

My opinion:

- 8mm Samyang
- 12mm f1.6 SLR MAgic
- 17.5mm f0.95 Voigtlander
- 24mm f10.95 Voightlander
- 35mm f1.4 Samyang (or keep your 35 if f2 is fast enough for you)
- Keep your 50mm
- 85mm f1.4 Contax Yashica/Carl Zeiss

This covers all the ranges...
