    I only mentioned it as early on with the Canon Cinema cameras there were a number of problems and glitches which seemed to be related to hot-swapping lenses. Can’t remember the exact details now.

    J. Brown, Do you turn the camera off when changing lenses? Did you change lenses during filming? FX6 powers on really quickly - I believe - so this should not be too much of a pain to do.

    This is (one reason) why I will probably keep my FS5 when I get the FX6. I have a lovely Tokina 14-20mm F2 and of course that Canon 17-55mm F2.8 IS for APC/Super35 lens mount - so no way will those...
