Please let us know what filter size these trays will accept?!
Schneider is having a price increase Jan 1st and it would be great to get orders in before then.
I assume (and am hoping) 5x5 will cover the 18-50 and 50-150 but it may be 5.6x5.6 ?
I know the rear opening of these lenses is 114mm.
I don't know how much any of the gear talked about costs Red or Arri, and of course it is possible that dollar for dollar the Red matte box will be better value than the equivalent Arri matte box.

Let RED come with specifications & pricing for Matte Box. It will make sense to compare it with other brands only after that. From what we have seen from RED so far, we can be sure it will be excellent value for our bucks.
Let us wait till RED makes more details public.
OHH...THAT bit of speculation!

That said, my ideal dolly would be a light weight device where the weight comes from the operator's body. An adjustable ped arm. Basically - I'm most interested in having a roling tripod with a ped arm to get my shots quickly. I am finding on a lot of shoots lately I'm in locations that are just too small to bring a big dolly into them yet I'm really stick of adjusting the sticks. So a tiny size would be ideal. People have suggested a few options which get mounted to the operator basicaly - but that won't work, I like setting a shot and locking it off. I think there is room for a totally unseen design for this kind of thing. If it does exist. link please.
(I should clarify that i'm aware of broadcast style pedistal tripods and I've though about those, but what I'm thinking would have a much lower height range than anything i've ever seen in a broadcast style pedistal... and be a lot cheaper ideally.)
Ha-ha - well that seems to be what this whole thread has turned into? May as well toss in a bit of speculation from the "gift horse's" mouth ;)

not what you want, but maybe a combo of this and something else,

i usually use this one ...
stil have to stabilize in post some shakes that eventually happen in track junctions, anyway it's light to carry around and very fast to setup!

It would be pity. Compatibility saves money and makes wider market pool.
