This 50mm lens provides what is considered a normal angle of view on full-frame cameras, and a tighter angle of view on smaller formats.

If the EF Mount version is adapted with a Metabones adapter onto an FS5/FS7, Will that difference in distance from rear element to sensor throw off the distance marks on the lens barrel for focus?
Asked by: bartholomew
We do not believe it would throw off the distance markers. However, this lens is available with an E-Mount, B&H # ROXN50NEX, you may want to use that model instead for a direct connection to the FS5 or FS7.

The gear pitch for these cinema lenses is the industry standard of 0.8mm. The other pitch 0.6mm is reserved for ENG 2/3 lenses and is very, very rare to have it on cinema lenses.

Can lenses be changed over to other mounts?
Asked by: Anonymous
Use a lens adapter unless you have an e-mount Xeen lens, I have some Fotodiox lens adapters, you may have a F-mount (Nikon) and shoot with a Sony camera using that lens adapter, this way you can mount it also to a GH4 with the proper adapter (F to micro 4/3), the less versatile mount is the e-mount which cannot be adapted to other camera bodies, it will only work with Sony Cameras, but Sony Cameras can accept nearly all mounts through proper adapters in the contrary.

How does the focus work? Like is it still manual or will it work with Blackmagic's bluetooth app for pulling focus?
Asked by: Logan
This is a cinema lens that only has manual focus. There is a focus ring, marked in feet, to manually adjust focus. This lens will not electronically pull focus.
