Lenses for BMDCC

Andrew : is the Tokina 11-16mm a good option? What about the Sigma 8-16?

I m also debating about Sigma 30mm 1.4 VS Samyang 35mm 1.4

If you value the faster aperture more, on the Tokina then that has to be it. Quite a big difference between F2.8 and F4 as well.
A shame we can't have both in one lens!
Also don't forget the rather lovely Canon EF 10-22mm F3.5

Impossible. Te EF mount has a much longer distance from lens to sensor than m43, you cannot make the distance shorter with an adapter. An adapter could be possible but it would need lenses to correct the distance, that makes it kinda pointless (quality loss). That's why a m43 mount BMCC is quite a big deal...
12mm f2 will be delicious on the bmc plse let us have a ef m4/3 adapter!?
Now the BMCC supports Image Stabilisation the Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 or 24-70mm 2.8 might be interesting options if you want to work handheld.
Samyang is working on a 10mm prime for aps-c-sensors (non fisheye), could be interesting if you don't want/need zoom.

One lens I've always been on the lookout for is an inexpensive 24mm f/2 or lower... f/1.4 would be dreamy. The issue I always have with the crop sensor on m4/3 is finding and equivalent to my Minolta 58mm f/1.4 @ full frame. Anyone have something like this or know of one that doesn't cost an arm and a leg?

I prefer the Samyang 35mm F1.4 it is sharper.

As I m getting MFT mount, I m thinking between Samyang/Rokinon 24mm f1.4 or Voightlander 25mm f0.95. I prefer second one, but it is much more expensive. Any thoughts?

Hello all. I now have a BMCC and just purchased the Canon 10-22mm. I have mounted the lens but I can't seem to control the iris using the "fast forward" and "rewind" buttons. I was able to use them with a Tokina lens so I know how the process works. Any thoughts? I am so use to aperture rings this whole new way is driving me crazy. Any help would be appreciated. Steve

I am a big fan of the sigma 30mm with tiffen variable ND (or any vari ND for that matter) combo.
The voight 17.5, sigma 30, and rokinon 85 t1.5 will be my main lenses for the time being.
may rent a zeiss compact prime when I finally get the camera to see if it would be worth saving up for.
I was very surprised at how filmic the sigma 30 looked with my gh2, and my mouth is watering to test it with the BMCC.
I have the rokinon 35mm t 1.5, and 95% of the time I will decide to use the sigma over it.
All of these are great lenses, but if I had only one lens to use with the BMCC I would probably go Sigma 30mm (unless I had the choice of some $3000-$50000 lenses) lol

Thanks for the reply. Primes seem not to be a problem having an aperture ring. The issue is more with wide angle zooms. I do a lot of documentary interviews and need to change the focal length without moving the camera physically.
