    I've tested so far only by hands, and this morning I decided to put on a full rig with RTmotion and a Mistfit Atom.

    28-58-85 went fine, but I've had trouble with the 37mm.
    I've done some fast swipe with the motor to check the image shift, as I've had lots of lomo and Ekran plagued by it.
    Well, the body, and the image shifts when focusing.

    I've sent a mail to Iron glass, and currently waiting for a answer.

    Whoa, that’s nothing like the 58mm I’ve used. Def unusable.

    I hope the mkII will address all the weak spots - moving design, non stainless steel mount, etc. While totally usable with Alexa, URSA, Venice, FX9, and other sheer amount of internal nd cameras, using mkI with matte box doesn’t seem to last long enough.

    No you can use it with a mattebox, just not clip on.
    And you have to have a bright tangerine black hole doughnut.
    I just purchased one, it's perfect. A little hard to mount on the front though.

    I've actually used it with such clip-on matteboxes: Arri LMB-15 (2 or 3 filters stacked), Tilta MB-T12 (2 filters stacked). It was the first thing I've tried to do when I recieved the lens and noticed it was a moving body design. Didn't have a chance to actually shoot any footage with a clip-on, because it was in April - early May and it was the Covid-19 hot season, everything was banned here, filming on the streets etc. But I've tested it at a couple fellow rental companies and it was fine - no image shifts, smooth throw (I was on a tripod). Just wasn't sure how it was going to survive the real set life with a clip-on on it - but I think now we have the answer thanks to you (it won't).

    Personally I hate matteboxes on rods/with donuts etc. I use them hard-mounted only when I use zoom lenses, or do carmount stuff.

    I've received a new unit from Iron Glass. I'll test it further in the next few days.

    Saw that they're having a Black Friday Sale. So now I am considering putting in an order, just wondering what people's experiences are with these, now that they've been out for a while?

    It's fine, but the markings are off. I couldn't care less about them as long as I have infinity.

    The only drawback for me is the forward movement. I fear to let them sleep at a rental facility because if they use a clip on Mattebox on it, as they could be damaged.

    The 135mm is on its way, and I truly miss the 20mm.
    As soon as they offer the mk2 upgrade, I'll do it.

    Ok, but the image shift is gone on your new 37mm? Decided to order them as well, let's see if they'll be the MK2 by the time they get around to make mine..

    I recently purchased a set of Clavius lenses, and was thinking that the Iron Glass Mir 20mm rehouse might be the perfect wide lens to pair with that set since I'd rather not deal with the clip on wide angle adapter. Has there been any news for the ETA of that lens? I see they just released their Tair 135mm rehouse, so the Mir should be next?

    If anyone in the states wants to pick up a rehoused 58mm in PL I've got one available in the marketplace.
