    Has anyone found a quality follow focus that works with this lens on a BMPCC? The problem with this particular lens is that the focus ring is in the rear instead of the front, so it's very close to the body of the camera. Every follow focus I've tried has been too bulky to align with the focus ring. I'd prefer not to purchase a larger screw-on ring if possible. Thanks.

    You might take a look at the Chrosziel Fluid Zoom control. You can orient it in many ways and the control fir the gear is on a sleeve so you may be able to slide it out enough to reach the rear focus gearing on that lens. I don't have the lens to check it out, but so far I have been able to focus with the 'zoom' control. Pictures on B&H Photo or Chrosziel's website.

    I am a fan of the zacuto z-drive (I don't use the tornado grip) though it certainly is not a cheap solution, it looks like the design should allow it to work with that lens.

    Also, the new Edelkrone Follow Focus Pro will work. The new model,is much better than the first version, no backlash, and thismis adjustable now.
    Cheers
