Letus35 v/s G35?

I love the idea of plug'n'play G35 - and dont like support/rod based systems like M2.

Looks like Letus35 is similar to G35 (www.cinemek.com - G35s new home)

anyone has compared both? price / image quality / ease of use

I've seen really great footage shot with both. I'd like to try the G35 and most likely will once it's available. As far as the differences this is what I've read/know so far.

Letus 35a, Guerilla35
$350, $1000+
Vibrating GG, Static GG (wax?)
58mm thread, 58mm thread

Theres more but it escapes me at the moment.

I think the G35 (or should it now be called C35?) shouldn't be classified as "58mm" mount. From what I see on their forums, the new one is larger.

Also at the camera end it has "adapter mounts" set up for 72mm, 58mm, etc. And I believe it's best to use their adapter mount to position the optics exactly where they should be, not just a regular ring. I see it also has some other neat features to do with dialling the camera in, but we'll have to wait and see.

Aren't the Canon FD and Nikon "ground glass to flange" distances different?

I have LETUS35A. Some are talking about dust and dirt. I have not come across any issue with dirt so far and used it for a month.
