C-Mount Lens Compatibility List

Please make sure that the C-Mount lens you add / modify has proven to be working with the BMPCC. If it vignettes, add the information at what focal lenghts etc. If it has to be modified to fit the adapter, also add that info. There are too many “maybe working” kind of infos on C-Mount lenses already, so it would be best to have a list only containing solid information on stuff that really works.
