Does any one know if BL3 magazines are compatible with BL4 and BL4s cameras?

Fauer's book seems to be ambiguous on this point. It says that the newer mags are backward compatible but the older ones are not forward compatible. Yet it mentions the BL1 and BL2 when referring to the older mags and does not say whether the BL3 mags are compatible with the BL4 or BL4s.

Thanks!

Yes, the BL-3 mags can be used on any BL.
