I have a bunch of lenses left over from a Canon T90. All are FD mount, of course.
I was wondering, can I use them with

1-The BMPCC
2-The BMCC
3-The BMPC
4-The Ursa Mini?

If I choose to use those lenses with the BMPCC I will have of course to deal with the crop factor. Do you think I can use a Metabone adapter in addition to the adapter necessary to use the FD lenses, so the crop factor is not as big?
At 3000 bucks the Ursa Mini seems amazing, especially if I can use those old canon lenses.
I'll appreciate your answers
Philippe

I think your question is better served by asking which lens mounts have adapters for FD lenses, as most of the cameras you are asking about offer different lens mounts. The lens mount available on blackmagic cameras are MTF, PL and EF. MTF mounts have adapters for FD lenses, and there are a few that adapt a FD lens to an EF mount but they do introduce artifacts to the image, and I haven't done the math for the flange distance, but I know of no FD to PL adapters.

I think I'll have to buy new lenses.
