    PL lenses are not expensive anymore. Also vintage lenses are wildly popular and don't usually come in EF mounts. Grant is missing a point. Put simply- PL IS the cine lens standard. BM is making cine cameras and so they claim. Why don't they use cine standards for lens mount? BM seems to be always behind in this regard.....hmmmm

    I’m sure they’ve sold many thousands of 6K cameras happily with their poor choice of EF mount.

    I think they know exactly what they’re doing.

    I wish they had PL mount and have no use at all for EF.

    But business is business. I’m sure they’d sell 20:1 if they offered both PL and EF.

    My hope is they drop a PL version. I know a few people are already working on chopping them.
