Zeiss Milvus with C300mkII

Hi guys,

When I bought my C300mkII I was disappointed to find none of my Zeiss EF lenses (25/50/100 f2) which work so well with the original C300 were compatible. Aperture control was lost and the camera wouldn't see the lens at all. I ended up selling them.

I'm curious if anyone has had any luck pairing the C300mkII with the new Zeiss Milvus lineup. The new 50 & 85 1.4 optics look great. No one in my area stocks these lenses and I'd love to know if they pair with the C300mk2.

Additional note, I've also found the new 35 and 85 1.8 Tamrons aren't compatible, which is a shame as they're fast and stabilised (unless the new firmware has resolved this), but the Sigma 50-100 and Tokina 11-20 both do and I'm enjoying great results with these. The Sigma 50-100 1.8 is particularly gorgeous and a perfect focal range for interviews.
