    Hey, I don't know what happened but a quick restart seems to have cleared up the performance problems! Realtime playback at full resolution is awesome! Moderators can delete this thread if necessary!

    This would be quite a dilemma, there are only three lenses after all. All I could say is, if it were me, I would go with the 40mm and 100mm and use the 40mm as a 50mm/60mm by moving closer, maybe...

    Update! Since I didn’t hear word back, I’ve decided to leave the lens as it is since I can technically achieve infinity focus at least, despite being in different spots on the focus scale. It’s a...

    Hi, I got your message and looking at the pictures, it looks like haze but could be the beginnings of lens separation or, if not that, then some sort of gassing much like what happens to the glue...

    Hey, everybody, I recently lucked into a fixer upper of a Canon nFD 80-200 F4 L that was quite the experience to take apart completely for fungus and oily aperture blades, now I’m resetting focus and...

    I would also say to wait until the 3000 series is out, which should be very soon, and see how they stack up with the current high end RTX products. If you had to buy now, I wouldn't think a single...

    I've taken apart several lenses, cheap and expensive, anamorphic and spherical, and the main issues I've found tend to be reversed elements causing distortion and overall softness or complete...

    Oh yes, the Sirui lens is incredibly nice and I could see building a set of those once there’s more in the line. However, my goal for my next movie is to use above APSC and film with the anamorphic...

    Okay, I tested the adapter out and it turns out to be a dud!

    To start, the lens had dust inside it from the factory which was a shocking quality control issue and I would have to send it back...

    I have the 2X adapter, not one of their anamorphic lenses. From what I understand, the lenses are just precisely mated lenses with the 2X adapter incorporated in the design as a single focus unit....

    I think Komodo will have a big impact on the used market! The thing with RED now is the support for the cameras. Yes, I purchased a used RED One MX to film my first feature (still in VFX post!) and...
