    I only had the BMCC MFT a while back which is a Passive MFT mount so it was full manual. Recently I have been thinking of getting a BMCC EF mount as most of my glasses are EF. I am told that the BMCC EF is full auto iris and that manually adjusting the iris is either not possible and/or the stops are not displayed on the screen. Is this true, a bug that has been fixed in later firmware, or a feature?

    Not sure if you're looking at info when the BMCC FIRST came out, ever.

    But no.

    On an EF body with EF lenses, you have full control of your aperture. You stop down or open up by using the forward or rewind buttons. Theres also an auto iris button if the mood strikes you.

    Also, your fstop is displayed on the screen.

    Just to amend: there are a handful of lenses that don't register with bmcc for whatever reason and then you have no control
    (And no auto iris either.) Iirc my canon 10-22 did not work, I had to set it on a standby canon body and then transfer to bmcc where it would retain the last setting (which is mostly to say I stopped using my 10-22.) I think that specific lens at least got fixed in later firmware

    Thanks folks. I thought that info was either wrong or outdated... Likely from an earlier firmware. The person who told me was then misinformed. I did want to verify it here and both of you did.
