    hi bill,

    thanks for your great response. i don’t know how i came to choosing the sigma 18-35mm for my first lens but in light of your words i think i’ll stick with it.

    in terms of the Metabones Nikon G Lens to Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera with Micro 4/3 Mount Speed Booster, if i purchased this instead of the cheaper adapter does this mean my bmpcc will be compatible with canon ef lenses?

    cheers

    Sadly, no. For compatibility with Canon EF lenses, you need either a Canon EF to micro 4/3 adapter with a manual aperture ring or a Speed Booster like those I linked to above:

    Manual aperture control:

  • DSLRKIT Canon EF to micro 4/3 adapter with aperture control – $31
  • Electronic aperture control:

  • $399 Metabones Canon EF to micro 4/3 adapter – (back ordered)
  • $598 Redrock Micro Livelens MFT Active Mount for EF Lenses
  • $599 Metabones EF to MFT Speed Booster, 0.71x Magnification, +1 stop brightness
  • $659 Metabones EF to BMPCC Speed Booster, 0.58x Magnification, +1.67 stops brightness
  • Again, hope this is helpful and best of luck!
