E-mount lens for Black Magic Pocket Camera
on Nov 24, 2015 at 3:04:59 am

Hello, does anyone know if an e-mount lens can be used with a BMPC?

The lens I have is a Micro Four Thirds SLR 35mm t0.95 prime lens. I also understand that the BMPC has a MFT sensor so maybe it'll match without an adapter? If not then can someone please link to me a web page that's selling the right adapter or at least tell me the name of the adapter that I should be getting.

One last thing, does adding an adapter reduce quality in any kind of way?

Also here's the lens that I'm talking about for better clarification.

That's all thanks and any kind of help/advice would be highly appreciated.

Sadly, Sony E mount has a shorter flange to focal plane distance than Micro 4/3 (e.g., 18mm for E mount, 19.25mm for MFT).

This prevents E mount lenses from being adapted to micro 4/3 mount cameras such as the BMPCC.

You can, on the other hand, mount Micro 4/3 lenses on E mount cameras with a simple adapter.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
