    exactly, AFAIK they have to modify the hardware, unless we're talking only newly re-designed mFT mout BMCC's to accomodate active mount. But this has not been confirmed yet. Maybe someone more enlightened can share.

    Any chance the price reduction is an effort to reduce their gen 1 inventory? I would think so, except it's pretty far off from NAB, where they've been announcing their new cams.

    This is just dreaming. I'm 200% convinced the update will bring AF on the EF model, period

    The guy's name is Grand PETTY nor Perry.

    I was wondering why not announce an ETA for an active MFT today but it will probably be six months before anyone can realistically pick one up. So I think I'm happy enough to pick up the MFT passive knowing an active will not be available for six months on top of what ever date they finally release.
