    It is so unfortunate that Red is not very supportive of Nikon glass. I have been waiting about 3 years for Red to support the 20mm f 1.8 AF-s. Still waiting.

    Made phone calls and offered my lens to map and verify. Told by bomb squad guy about 18 months ago of the offer. He called back and said Red did not want the loan of the lens.

    Perhaps this was overlooked. RED has been great implementing firmware to support lenses. Remember Nikkor has for most part changed design and functionality several times through the years so it's never as easy for a universal mount to recognize everything right out of the box.

    Other AF-s G lenses have been supported. Even some obscure D lenses have been supported, although obviously the autofocus can not be supported on those lenses because it is a screw drive which Red mounts are not equipped for. Still hopefully waiting for the 20mm 1.8 AF-s love from Red. It is such a wonderful lens.

    How does that 20mm 1.8 look wide open?

    The 20mm 1.8 is wonderful wide open. Sharp and nice contrast. Good rumor has it that Panavision rehouses Nikon AF-s primes. I think it is a bargan lens for the price. AF-s lenses are not tight tolerance lenses so they can focus fast on still cameras. I have noticed that all
    AF-s lenses exhibit image shift to one degree or another when manually focused, however there is little or no image shift when the internal lens motor is used. This is why I crave for Red to support this particular lens.

    Checking a thing with Nikon AIS. I thought as iris on Nikon was still the same design for decades, the iris could be motorized on AIS, but it doesn't work.
    Do i need to create a lens profile to make it to work ?
