I went today to a photograph shop and asked about the autofocus Nikon lenses. They got their own ring to use the iris in manual position! I dindnīt know this before. This is what i was looking for, range is awesome big, finding from expensive to affordable prices. I donīt care about breathing since lot of big (more than 100.000 €/$!) bugdet films have this issue too, So, where is the problem?

I saw canon lenses donīt have this sweetness option since they changed the mount. So even if Nikon lenses are manual or autofocus they will be able to play iris games. And if they run from 200€ or 300€ anyway its a real well good investment of money because you can use them for photography and video. Im on Nikon... and Fuji (I saw this 12 megapixels babe and canīt take it from my mind).

Canon always giving problems...

Is it a good option then (the best)? What all of you think about the Nikon lenses? Iīm just jumping from my chair thinking about the Micro on my lady and one of those beauties over them!

Nikon lenses are the best. They're high quality, relatively inexpensive and can be quite sharp.

The best thing about them is that you can mount any Nikon lens to any Nikon body. No other manufacturer that I know of has done this. Canon is especially bad in this regard coming out with lenses only for a specific camera and then dumping them when they produce newer products.

Auto focus lenses can be used in full manual mode. You're not stuck with only auto focus.

I agree. Now that I've got Canon taken care of, I'm trying to find a source for metal the Nikon mounts.

Ebay is a good place to find cheap Nikon Lens, you need to watch out for lenses which are scratched or have mold growing inside them. I got a very nice manual 50mm/1.4 off ebay from significantly less then my local camera store.

James,

I was just checking out your website - you said you have different grades of GG - are you making them yourself or buying?

Also, you mounts for the SLR, in the guide, are you going to tell where the best place to buy them? I am also assuming that the price is still the same for the parts to buy - you said $45.00 originally for all the part and $35.00 for the guide right? I see that the guide has gone up, but has the parts list gone up to?

Thanks

It is mentioned many times within this thread that he is having them made through a company.

Will your adaptor be compatible with Sony HD FX1?. I have registered at your site. But so far did not receive any upgrade. (I follow your progress daily) No date fixed for the release of your manual?.

Obin, I got the latest draft of the guide with the drawing updates today and approved it for printing.

I think I've got an appointment with a new Sony HDV camera! We'll have some updates on that next week.

Looks like I'm going to release a softwre video monitor with recording capabilities. It will have different aspect ratio frames and a video flipper for the micro35 devices. Anyone interested in something like this?
