    I am punched in 200%, which probably makes the noise more pronounced. Here's a Super 8 emulation test where I just applied a mask over the vignetted area, to give you an idea of how cropped in it is:
    Te Graduate is one of my favorite films and is one of the reasons I love a good zoom shot. That and Kubrick.

    3x + the 1.6x crop of the sensor. If you want s16 and RAW, just get the Blackmagic Pocket or Micro. It reliably shoots Full HD in RAW as well as ProRes, with a s16 sensor.

    This morning we filmed our friend Ariel Dyer's entry for the Tiny Desk Contest. We shot with the Canon 7D and BMPCC with My Canon TV-16 25mm and Cosmicar 12.5mm. Here are my BMPCC grabs with quick and dirty color correction.
    Canon TV-16 25mm 1.4 (5.6/8 split, 200asa):


    Cosmicar 12.5mm 1.9 (wide open with ND, 800asa):

    The last one was a bit underexposed, so there's noise, but I like the rest of the image.

    About a year ago I bought the Computar 6.5mm 1.8. I knew nothing about the lens, except that it was fixed focus, it was $30, and the seller claimed it covered the sensor of the Pocket. I had written the lens of until now because it was super soft until f/8. Out of curiosity, I decided to try it again, but this time, a light bulb went off in my head. "What if it's soft because it's too close to the sensor and not technically in focus?" So I unscrewed it a little, and everything came into focus, literally and figuratively. It's still not super sharp wide open, but it's what I would deem usable. It gets better at 2.8. 

    1.8

    2.8, with the lens unscrewed even further for a close-up (that's my finger "focusing" in the top right corner, it's not vignetting). It's pretty loose when unscrewed, so I need to figure out a shim solution for this.
    You can see the lens is distorted, and it's not as nice as the Cosmicar 6.5mm (wish I still had it) but this would be a lens I would use for very stylized shots.

    I got to use my Canon TV-16 25mm 1.4 on an actual shoot (an eating competition show on youtube--my first time directing an episode as well). This was shot wide open.

    Here are a few things I've shot with Rokinon lenses (10, 12, 16, 24, 35):
    These are mostly BMPCC, and a couple of NX1 videos, but they can at least give you a rough idea of their quality. I never ended up using it in any of my posted videos (just a couple of tests), but I also used to own the 50mm 1.4. I'd say the 12mm 2.2 (MFT, not the fisheye one of APS-C), 16, and 50 were the sharpest and most modern-looking ones I owned. I shot my latest short film "Chicken" almost entirely on the 16mm with the a6300, but I can't post that yet.

    Thanks!
    The Rokinons definitely are not compact lenses. Most have 77mm filter threads and are pretty long/bulky.

    Thanks @mercer that means a lot. I had the NX1 in early 2015 and sold it (to someone here on this forum) when I got an apartment with my girlfriend, so I could have some extra money in the bank.  The 50 was definitely nice, even if I didn't have it long enough to use it on a shoot. I did sound for a web series which was shot on the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K with Rokinon lenses. I lent the DP my Rokinon 50mm and he absolutely loved it. I don't think I have any NX1 footage besides the footage of the two videos I posted. I don't save most of my test footage.

    Canon TV-16 25mm 1.4 (shot wide open with the bmpcc):

    I've just played around with it for a couple of minutes and I love it already. It's sharp, with bokeh that's not as swirly and crazy as other c-mount lenses. I'll post footage later today.

    Oh no, what have I done? Have I gone and bought the bmpcc again? I tried 4K, it was fine, now I'm back to the land of better color and DR, and ProresHQ/Raw files and that s16 sensor. Feels good. I'd say this is still my favorite camera. Anyway, I decided to compare some of my c-mount lenses. Don't mind the quick and dirty lighting and grading, this is more about the lenses and their sharpness wide open. You can tell the 12.5mm is the sharpest because of the aliasing in my beard. I still love the camera though. Here's some bmpcc/c-mount lens footage I shot a year ago (which is what made me want to get the pocket again) with the KP 26mm, KP Yvar 16mm 2.8, and Fujinon 18-108mm 2.5 zoom:
