    I have the black magic pocket 4k. The lens i have on it is the panny -12-35. I also have from when I used the original BMCC the sigma 17-50 f2.8 and the Tokina 11-16 2.8 with a novoflex adapter. I'm a director not a DP - and I've heard rumblings about the panny lens. My question is would you folks sell the panny lens and get a metabones adapter for the sigma and i guess a dummy mount for the tokina - it being a nikon lens. I'd appreciate any feedback. Thanks

    Personally I like to have at least 1 native lens about in case any adaptors malfunction, which in my experience is a possibility even with the more expensive of the bunch like a metabones.

    The 12-35 is a pretty great all-rounder to have with you in a small form and has ois. I'd keep it and wait until you can budget to get a metabones.

    Second that. It's not the greatest lens out there, but other than many adapters it always works (as long as nothing is damaged). Can save your behind.
