    Can someone tell me which Blackmagic camera bodies are completely compatible with m4/3rds lenses? It seems that some of their bodies don't have 'active' mounts, which will mean the AF and f-stop functions on these lenses won't work on some of these Blackmagic bodies. My main concern is that virtually all Olympus's m4/3rds lenses don't have a manual aperture ring on them, so the functionality of these Zukio and Lumix lenses will be compromised.

    IIRC the Micro Cinema Camera, Pocket Cinema Camera, Studio Camera, and Micro Studio Camera all have active mounts.

    Only the Cinema Camera had a passive m4/3 mount.
