    Hmm... time to think about if I should invest in Nikons ...

    Most (or all?) G and D lenses have a toggle switch for auto or manual focus, but the iris of G lenses has to be electronically controlled without the aid of an adapter a la the Optitek mount.

    Edit: and the Red Nikon mount has electronic control for both iris and focus, if I'm correctly informed.

    Have been busy building a really nice set of Nikkor AI-S primes. Beautiful Lenses, built to last, and relatively cheap. 7 primes (cinemoded) + the Aluminum mount should run just shy of 6K.

    yes, that is understood, but i think Jarred knows what i mean---something like OptiTek Mount where you have manual control over IRIS with iris ring....but then with an electronic option....this is what i had meant....and i believe Jarred talked about this option being a possibility.

    Could you specify the differences between the 2 mounts or is it "just" the material?

    Cheers

    Can I order one now before the price goes up? :-)


    Can I assume you have characterized the 14-24 zoom, it is probably the best wide angle we've ever seen (well maybe master 14, but I can't even afford to rent it :-) )

    "Can't even afford to rent it." Quote of the year. Hilarious.

    This is fantastic news, I really thought the Nikon mounts would carry more of a premium over the Canon ones. Thanks again, RED, you continue to take care of your customers!
