    Note that Birger will no longer be making a wireless control knob, but have done a deal with Viewfactor to allow their Impero knob to control Birger mount with a Bluetooth module swapped in for the Impero's ZigBee radio module.

    One mount that should be built for the 2/3 sensors, is the four thirds lens mount (in fact a four thirds sensor 17.3 x 13mm would be a good thing too!). Olympus makes astounding lenses specifically designed for digital sensors and the four thirds system. Their speed is fantastic compared to FF35 lenses. For example, their 300mm f/2.8 on a 2/3 sensor provides the equivalent FF35 of a 1135.661 mm lens, but with the depth of field of a 300mm lens. Their 35 - 100 mm F/2.0 (equivalent to 132.5 - 378.5mm FF35) and 150 F/2.0 (567.83mm FF35 equivalent) are unequalled for sharpness, speed, low CA and center to corner sharpness - ideal for nature, sports and low light work.

    One more for your list Jim....

    I don't have any Lomos in house right now. Not sure who does. Some of them have these L shaped brackets that interfere with the RED adjustable collar and are not mountable.

    I should have a Panvavision mount for the RED for rent in a week or so.

    Mixing PL mount and an SLR mount isn't going to very user friendly. It takes 10-30 minutes to change a mount so you wouldn't do it during a shooting day normally. Pick the mount you want and buy lenses to match would be my advice.

    Updated the warranty situation on both Birger (rather bad) and Alesniak (v. good). Alesniak update on control options. Shuffled the order around.

    See the original post for details - or read through those long pages over at Birger and Alesniak :)

    And time for another update - see the original post.

    I ordered a dumb mount from Alesniak and had it on my Red in no time (ignoring the holiday FedEx delays).

    There is a Contax mount on sale on eBay. Not having heard of it before, I would imagine that the warranty situation is not cleared. http://cgi.ebay.com/RED-one-Lens-adapter-for-Carl-Zeiss-Contax-lenses_W0QQitemZ140293081841QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLen s_Accessories?hash=item140293081841&_trksid=p3286. c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|2 40%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50
