    If you could choose what lens mount the BlackMagic Cinema Camera came with...

    I would choose M43 because with such a small sensor you need to have fast wide glass like the Voigtlander Nokton 25mm 0.95 and the SLR Magic 12mm 1.6

    Yep. The 12mm SLR Magic lens should be ideal for this camera. Fast & wide. And if you want really wide, the 7-14mm Lumix lens should look phenomenal.

    The other best part about a m4/3 lens mount is that almost anything else can adapt to it. Canon EF, Canon FD, Nikon F, PL, etc. It's essentially a universal lens mount, so there's really no downside to having it.

    Thats what I was thinking. The EF/EOS guys could still get a lens adapter or even the Redrock lens mount, while others can use the Voigtlanders or olympus lenses that are designed for the smaller sensors.

    Although I have micro 4/3 lenses including the Voigtlander 25, I hope they stick with the EF mount (at least for now). After following the original Scarlet, and Red changing and changing, to then eventually never see the camera... I just want Blackmagic to get this camera to market ASAP, however they want to design it.

    M4/3" seems the obvious route to me, fast, wide, compact lenses designed for the smaller sensor. It'd make the move to the smaller format less of a headache.

    I'm kinda hanging out for a Letus relay lens so that you can throw a 35mm adapter on one.

    m43, no question. Opens up a world of possibilities.

    M4/3 mount. Then we get Nikon F & G, Canon, PL and many others with adapters.

    I'd be happy if they offered M4/3 manual. Cine Film cameras don't have AF or AE.
