Will this be compatible with the new BMPCC6K with Sony CineAlta Six Lens Kit?

It is not. This adapts Canon EF Lens to a PL-Mount Camera. The Pocket Cinema Camera 6K is an EF mount camera.

What happens if you use a lens that covers full frame on this adapter? For example a 35mm 1.4 L Series lens that is larger than S35
Asked by: Rick
This adapter is meant for Super35 EF mount cine lenses so they can be used on a full frame sensor camera with a PL mount. This comes with caveats. As a consequence of the image being blown up in size to cover the full frame sensor, the FOV (Field of View) narrows for it has been magnified. This may require you to get a wider-angle lens. Then you lose 1.36 stops of light using this. Lastly, the lens needs to have at least a T/2 exit pupil aperture so the light can spread enough. Paradoxically, this T/2 sized exit pupil is still needed when you set the lens to the required T/2.8 or higher number that is needed for this adapter to deliver quality. There is no information as to using Canon full frame EF lenses. I would say that such a lens will mount, that the image will still be blown up and you will still lose wideness. However, I know of no Canon EOS EF lenses that have manual aperture to fulfill the requirement of a T/2 exit pupil and then being able to stop down to T/2.8 or more.

Can this be used to adapt a Canon EF Zoom (24-70mm 2.8 for example) to a Canon C300 Mkii PL mount?
Asked by: martin
No you cannot. This adapter is designed for super 35mm/APS-C Lenses only. Full Frame lenses like the 24-70mm 2.8 will not work.
