Wow, I would totally buy a relay for my M2 knowing it has a built in ND filter and iris ring. holy cow!. It would be a beautiful baby. Letus meets M2.... The Letus-rock35

Ahh! I totally forgot that the iris is not inside the camera body but in the actual lens as it should be on XL series (I use a GL2)...duh *knocks forehead* I should've known...sorry. But that is very clever of Quyen and the design looks rock-solid. Hoo-rah!

No ND filter at this time, only IRIS control. I am open for other adapter makers to contact me to have this made for their units if they are interested. Make 1 relay lens for some adapter, it doesn't worth my time and effort, thanks.

A relay lens is basically a normal lens, which is designed to focus on a flat surface. So as any normal lens it should have an Iris and a focus. It would be very hard to work with a lens without an Iris. That's not different for a relay lens. The P+S Micro35 relay lens for the XL/HD100 series has an Iris and a focus ring for the record.

Hello Andrew,
Yep, I've seen that one. I'm waiting also.

It's hard to find a perfect sunny day in Oregon this season. I manage to take my camera when I go to church today and have a couple of minutes at the park nearby. I will try to upload some seconds when I get home. No firewire at church, thanks for your patient.

http://www.letus35.com/park.mpg (12.4MB) 6K compression
http://www.letus35.com/park1.mpg (6.55MB) 3k compression
Both files are the same thing, just make the smaller file for people having difficulty to download larger file. Couple of minutes is too quick for anything nice. Full resolution mpeg1 file. I am sorry if you don't like flowers, thanks.

wise fool

This is my first DVi post, so go easy on me if I say something really stupid. I am a still photographer who is interested in using my assortment of Nikon lenses to improve the quality of my videos. I read a lot of posts about the importance of having high quality glass on the subject side of the GG, but wouldn't obtaining the best relay lens possible be of equal value? Has anyone considered using a 35mm macro lens as the relay lens? These lenses are optimized for close focus, and have an aperture adjestment...would this be equivalent to iris adjustment in video. I have not done any tests, but I would think that a macro lens would be better suited to focussing on a GG at short distances than a 16x or 20x zoom, which has more elements and is designed to cover a much broader range. It would also address the "leaf blower" isse of hanging a shooting lens and Letus on the end of a long zoom. Any comments?

the non xl versions of the letus use a macro and the 16x lens. the relay lens does away with both of them. a macro by itself can not do the job of a relay lens. also it would have no focusing abilities or iris control
