FYI: Wide zoom lenses for the BMCC
on Jul 14, 2012 at 4:10:20 am

Here are two examples of relatively inexpensive, wide zoom lenses which may prove useful with the BMCC:

The Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 zoom:

The Sigma 8-16mm f4.5-5.6 zoom:

On a related note, refer also to the Abel-Cine lens FOV comparator:

Compared to full-frame 35mm digital still format, the BMCC's crop factor is about 2.3. Compared to S35 motion picture film, it's about 1.6. So, for example, the wide end of the Sigma has the FOV of a 12.8mm lens on a S35 cam -- extremely wide.

Although expensive, I still think the Canon 8-15mm f/4L will be a big hit with its variable crop factor in place. All strong theories until I get my BMDCC in-hand.

I also received a Rokinon 8mm T3.8 fisheye cinema style prime lens, which is quite inexpensive, around the $350 range. I'm in the middle of producing a video comparing these two lenses, so stay tuned!
