    C-Mount 6mm f/1.8-16 1" HC Series Fixed Lens is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Wide Angle for the BMPCC I used this lens on a cross-country road trip, using the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera on a suction mount inside the cabin of a truck. Even looking through the window glass, when I switched lenses from a high end Nikkor Zoom to the Kowa 6mm, during the edit, you could see the marked jump in acuity. Given the lack of filter potential (a weakness for a native ISO 800 camera) I could only use this lens at the very beginning and end of the day when shooting in the truck. There was no room for a matte box system, needed to get an ND working. This lens will stand up to most any prime lens, and is a welcome (wide angle, finally!) addition to any pro shooting situation with the Pocket Cinema Camera.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Wide Angle Lens for the Pocket A great, sharp ultra wide lens for the BMPCC with low chromatic abberation and distortion. It covers the BMPCC and Panasonic GH4 4K sensor. Downside is that this lens has no front filter thread, but if you search diligently enough one of the anamorphic lens holders will clamp onto it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great lens for the GH5! I use this on my GH5 in 4K UHD and set the stabiliser to 0.1mm to lose the vignetting yet gain the smooth footage. Its sharp, VERY wide and has character. Not for the clinical hearted or those who hate flares!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Review on mows 6mm Amazing lens for gh4. Very small and light shoots great in low light situations ( f/1.8) and is the equivalent of a regular 12mm on the gh4. That is hard to find for the gh4 without using any adapter

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A beautifully engineered lens I'd say the perfect ultra wide for film making! Far far better than the dreadful Laowa 7.5mm. THIS lens is quality! Made from METAL parts not cheap plastic! A small package with a large result! Recommended highly for the GH4/GH5, BMPCC/BMPCC4K and the JVC LS300! Shalom!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best UWA for 1" sensors! You can't beat this! Solid construction, tack sharp optics and excellent build quality only the Japanese can master.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GH4/GH5/G9 Users It should cover the 4K crop OK. Use the Metabones C-Mount to M4/3 adapter for infinity focus. Check out the C-Mount on M4/3 group on Facebook for further info, they are a good helpful bunch!
