Hi,

I also have that lens and aperture control works. However VC = IS does not. I believe that all IS / VC will not work with the current firmware as there probably no signal from the camera to initiate the VC/IS in the lens. In Canon cameras (DSLR) the VC/IS will be initiated at focus/metering request (that is when you press the shutter button) I believe this signal is mission from the Kine. This is a know issue and nothing to wine about. As far as I know that is quite high on Kinefinity's priority list.

For the record:
Tamron SP 24-70mm f/2.8 DI VC USD - IRIS CONTROL WORKS, STABILISATION DOES NOT
Kinemini 4K, Canon 5D4, Canon C100MKII

Yes I know the aperture works I never said it doesn't. Just sharing my thoughts on VC as I haven't seen it in the list.
I'm happy to hear they are looking into it and I hope they will be able to sort it out.
However I would still like to understand how come so many great lenses is not compatible.

I am totally in the same boat. There are far too many great lenses that do not work.

For the record:
Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM - NO IRIS CONTROL
Sigma DC 17-50 1:2.8 EX HSM - NO IRIS CONTROL
Canon EF 85mm 1.8 USM - IRIS CONTROL WORKS - max aperture (f2)
Canon EF 50mm 1.8 USM II - IRIS CONTROL WORKS - max aperture (f2)
Kinemini 4K, Canon 5D4, Canon C100MKII

The Cine lenses have manual aperture so they should work just fine :)

Cine lenses should work fine since the iris is controlled manually, not electronically. :)
