Just ordered my LetusXL Flip v2

I Just ordered my LetusXL Flip v2. I can't wait! I just missed out on one that Quyen Le had in stock. Oh well. I know it will be worth the wait.

I hope it's not a long wait. Perhaps the end of March. I have not heard from Quyen yet. But then again.... it's only been a few hours.

Good luck!

I emailed him a week ago and he told me he is out of town for about 4 weeks so that is why he mentions it will go out around the third week of March on his website.

I just ordered other toys in the meantime.

Well if you haven't already...you might get your accessories needed in the meantime. I just ordered a bunch of other stuff and waiting for those to arrive also. Ie Cavision rods, Cavision lens bracket support, lens hoods, len's filters, Steip up rings, a on-camera monitor, etc. At least this took the sting out of the wait.

Cary-

Yeah.. I agree. I need to find a lense. I just bought an on board monitor. I was going to hold off on rails and stuff until after I get the adaptor.

Perhaps we need to start a support group for people waiting for their adaptors? Ha ha ...

Take care...

Now i have the Letus35 FE. In some days the postman will bring me a Nikkor 50mm 1.4, a Nikkor 24mm 1.8, a +10 Close-up lens, and a Cavision Rod support.
I can't wait...!!!! As soon as they come i will rent my fav camera: HVX-200 and shot some 720p50 motion pictures.

You should save your space for more lens protection. The rods can take a beating and is not as sensitive vs having prime len protection.

I believe he means that you shouldn't dedicate so much foam protection to your rails (which are effectively unbreakable) and instead you should leave a wider/thicker foam barrier around your lenses (which are definitely breakable)
