    From my perspective the built in timecode generator and the auto copying to USB (to make for a kinda sort of "psuedo redundency") are two waaaaaaaaaaay more important features in the MixPre6 that Gen2 bought to it over Gen1, the 32bit is almost totally irrelevant to me personally (a mere gimmick even!).

    Gotta say, I cannibalized an old Cineroid viewfinder and attached the resulting loupe to my FS5's LCD over the weekend and it's improved its usability by about a million percent.

    I don't doubt it. I use one of these on mine: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ....html/overview

    It was designed for the Blackmagic pocket and it's actually a bit too small (you lose a millimetre or so on either side). It weighs virtually nothing. Huge improvement over the EVF.

    I only started using it cos I'm now in my 40s and my eyes can't focus close enough to use a naked LCD screen. It's such a great way to shoot though, I wish I'd given it a go years ago - all those wasted years!

    Does the FE 24-240mm F3,5-6,3 OSS zoom lens working as power zoom on FX6 with zoom rocker like Sony FE 24-105mm f/4 G OSS zoom lens? Thanks! :-)

    It seems that also the 24-105 doesn't work as power zoom. So what motorized zoom lenses /full frame) working with FX6 powerzoom feature?

    Sony has a 28-135mm f/4 power zoom lens too... it was the kit lens with the FS7 when it first came out and I believe is the current kit lens for the FX9.

    I used the 28-135mm a fair amount on my Fs5 and I wasn't wild about it. The range is much more useful on a full-frame sensor like the FX6's, but the zoom and focus actions weren't great (and were apparently improved for the 18-110). But the FX6's AF does make this a more tempting option...

    I got the 28-135 for my A7S3 recently to gain access to servo zoom, internal zoom (which seems to hold balance on the ronin-s from 28-100 before becoming slightly more back-heavy from 100-135, but the shift in balance is nowhere near as bad as with my 24-70), and OSS as well as a large zoom range.

    The autofocus on the 28-135 does not seem to be as good as any of the other FE lenses I've bought (Sigma 24-70, Samyang 18/35/85, Tamron 70-180). I still need to conduct further tests, but it doesn't seem as responsive and snappy.

    That being said, it can still accomplish a lot and is super useful. I recently shot b-roll of artworks and set the focus area on the leading edge of my tilts/pans. The lens handled the subtle shifts in distance admirably

    I wish it went to 24mm but 28 is pretty usable. I wish you could crash zoom, but I needed slow, controlled zooms more than I needed crash zooms. All in all, I'm very pleased with it (especially for the price)

    For the price I think this lens is exceptional (even with the caveats I mentioned previously). I don't think there's anything even remotely comparable: parfocal (more or less), solid optical quality, servo zoom, with decent AF and much better manual control than most other Sony lenses (even if it's not perfect). I never owned it but I borrowed it for about a year from a friend and was sad to see it go.
