    Too many variables to fully list here, but it truly does come down the lens and the lens design if it's going to cause issues. It's not just about vignette either, it's about gate flare and other things that can occur.

    I personally would recommend only using the VV PL and EF mounts for VV filming as it is the one answer that doesn't cause trouble.

    Plus isn't the cost difference only $50? ($700~750)

    Thanks Phil. So far I haven't had any issues with the S35 EF mount I have on my monstro and my canon lenses. I may look into getting the bigger EF mount but I think eventually I will be getting away from Canon glass and staying PL.

    not much of a difference unless you are shooting 8K with a super wide lense.. also I think there's a flange issue where it will box off part of a flare unnaturally. but, get the VV anyways, it'll give you a chance to upgrade the EF mount to have the captive screws, the original EF mount the screws came off was always a pain to keep track of... the resell value of your old EF s35 is pretty high and easily covers most of the cost of the new one.

    The one I have the screws stay in. I been all the way to 16mm on my mount and haven't seen any issues yet. Maybe if I go wider i will see issues.

    My Motion Mount S35 have NO coverage issues with any FF lens I have tried on my VV Monstro in FF/VV mode. I dont understand why, but it works. Even with an 18mm. I shall try an 16 or 14 when I can get my hand on one.

    I got the first iteration of Canon mounts, have not had problems with gate flare etc, I guess its more prone to do it than the newer versions but no biggie.
