Wow six pages and still no review... ;-) I know it's not your fault but it shows how much interest there is in this topic. Chris or someone will have to trim all this down when your results actually hit the web. (be sure this post gets the ax first)

Looking forward to your review. BTW, I guess I'm lucky my cats are computer friendly...

A face off between the M2, Brevis and SGPro... multiple Firewire blowouts, 6 pages of frustrated posts... is this going to be the 'Lost in La Mancha' of 35mm adapter reviews, is is doomed not to happen?

Phil, we're all behind you, good luck... cut the red wire, not the green...

What if my shootout says the Brevis is pile of poo? Joking, all three are superb.

I am doing it all now. I have published the start of it at www.philipbloom.net click on 35mm shootout. Keep checking back I will be adding to this every as soon as i get each section written

I am progressing with part two but I am too knackered to finish it tonight, my typos are getting worse and worse. I will carry on tomorrow. I hope it is useful so far. I am trying to make it as relevent and as personal to my experiences as possible.

So far so good Phil (I'll post up an edge-to-edge sharpness how-to at the cinevate forum). Just one correction. The Cinevate=Dennis comment is actually not correct...3 more have been added in the last six weeks or so. That's not counting Mike the CNC guy who does all our CAD and CNC work these days. I could still do it myself but we'd need to slow down the earth's rotation to make a day about 96 hours or so :-)

Thanks Phil!!
And yeah.. please someone clarify about the edge-to-edge sharpness issue with the Brevis... I was a little bit shocked/worried when I read that part! *sigh*
It was one of the main reasons I was going for the Cinevate/Brevis...
Thx!

Thanks Dennis, The edge to edge problems I had were really minor and I didnt actually notice it. It was Wayne who noticed it. I will definately go to your forum and see how I can eliminate it entirely!

Thank you very much Phil, lovely article for a surprisingly nice sunny day in UK :D.

I don't mind about the professional look of the product, more important is the quality of result and other practical option.

So far:
*Setup-time: Brevis > M2 > SGPro (even Wayne took 15 minutes.. wow!)
*Picture quality in term of edge-to-edge-sharpness: SGPro > Brevis > M2

Look forward to your next chapter of review.

Thanksss :D.

Hi Ing

Glad you are liking it so far. I would say setup time for the m2 and sgpro would be much the same if wayne wasn't there so I wouldn't put the m2 ahead of it there.

Edge to edge is very subjective. All three are capable of edge to edge, just on that day in those conditions I was unable to get perfect edge edge on the m2 and brevis, but both of these are capable of it. With the M2 you just need to make sure you set it up in controlled conditions with a large monitor to make sure.

Also the SGPro does look professional, just not as much as the other two!

Considering that Wayne has never even seen the m2 before his SGPro takes the same idea behind it and improves it in some ways!

Phil
