Are Zeiss EOS mount lenses compatible with the C100?

[ Edited ]

Hi There,

 

I have the Zeiss 100mm Makro and 15mm lenses which both work great on my 5D. But when either lens is mounted on my C100 MKI, I can’t change the aperture.

 

Are the Zeiss lenses compatible with the C100?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Cheers,

 

Ben

You can’t use the camera controls like you can for all other exposure settings.

 

You can only use the wheel on the handle which means you always have to have the handle attached. And the handle joystick also doesn’t work like it does for other exposure controls, only the wheel.

 

I’ve always suspected the auto aperture on Canon compatible lenses would bite - better to get the more flexible Nikon ZF mount with a proper ring - despite the focus going the wrong way.
