BMCC lens choice

Peter Haken

Recommended Posts

Just read you article on EOSHD on wide angle BMCC lens choice, very interesting thanks.


Looking to buy a BMCC very soon and researching lenses.


These are the  hot contenders with my 1K budget for glass

Tokina 11-16mm F2.8 (constant aperture)
Sigma 8-16mm F4.5-5.6




Prime Cine route with Rokinon/Samyang

Please excuse my naivety, but which BMCC mount should i go for as the above  lens offer different mounts anyway?


On researching think MFT is my best option



Looking to shoot promos and general stock film


Thanks in advance Pete

You absolutely do not want to get the BMCC EF, as getting the BMCC MFT is much more usable. 

For this you then want to get Nikon (G) F to m4/3 RJ Lens Turbo. (plus of course a normal adapter)

Then this would be a good starting starting point for a lens collection (make sure you get them all in Nikon F mount! Very important. Plus, you can often pick them up cheaper second hand):

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8

Nikon 50mm f/1.8D
