can you tell me if this type of lens is good for the pocket cinema camera? and if it works the setting of the auto iris?

This is an EF-S lens. The mount on the Pocket Cinema Camera is a MFT (Micro Four-Thirds). There are adapters out there that will convert EF to MFT so you could use this lens with the Pocket Cam. However, most are "dumb" adapters, meaning there are no electronics. No IS, no Iris control. There are "smart" adapters that let you control the aperture, but they are expensive. Search google for "EF to MFT" to see whats out there.
