Has anyone tried using the MFT BCC with Minolta lenses? I have a whole bunch of them with manual aperture and I'm wondering how well it works with a MFT adapter and the BCC camera? Is there any reason why they wouldn't work?
There have been no MFT BMCC's that have shipped so no one will have had the opportunity to try. If you have the correct adapter such as the ones linked to below, there is no reason that they should not work.
The Novoflex is a much better adapter though the Fotodiox is the better of the budget options.

Agreed, though I'd add this:
I've had much better luck with Fotodiox's "pro" lens adapters than with their regular, non-pro models. For example, I bought a non-pro Fotodiox E-to-MFT lens adapter that had an obvious design defect (a light leak!) that wasn't a manufacturing defect: It was designed with the light leak (I assume not intentional, just poorly designed). Their "pro" E-to-MFT adapter that they sent to me as a replacement is a much better design, and of course it doesn't have a light leak. My experience with Fotodiox customer service has been excellent.
