Letus Grabs

This is straight out of the camera, no cc. The evening light was pretty intense so not ideal and I didn't critically white balance but I think it looks pretty sharp. Look at the first shot, it's about the sharpest I've seen in a 35mm adapter for wide detail. For this test I used Nikon 100mm f2.8 and 50mm f1.8 lenses and my latest VIVIDRGB preset (http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showthrea...81071&page=6):

Steven: Nice images.

Just got the Letus35a yesterday, for use on the Canon HV20 and my FX1. Questions:

1. With the A-1, are you as close to the focusing/frame filling line as I am with the HV20 and FX1, or does the A-1 give you a bit of latitude to zoom in and out. I'm finding very little wiggle room with mine.

2. Is that the Nikon Series E 100 mm ??

3. Are you using the dual lens mount that flips for Nikon and Canon lenses, and if so, are you finding that it mount positively, or having and difficulty with it. When I engage the retaining screw, it seems to shift lens a bit off access, and I'm not sure how much that affects things.

Chris,

I'm not sure I understand your first question but I have lots of leeway to zoom in an focus if that's what you are saying.

Yes, it is the series E lens and I love it.

Not noticing the flip Nikon/Canon issue you are having.

Thanks Steve. You interpreted first question, and answered it for me. I knew the FX1 were a bit tighter in the zoom, per other experiences, and was wondering how A-1 fared..

Just missed A series E 100mm on ebay...


Thanks..
