XH-A1 and Letus Flip Enhanced - reccomendations!

Hello everyone! I've had my Canon camera for about 2 months now and I absolutely love it. I think now might be the time to take it to the next step, so I think I'm going to buy a Letus Flip Enhanced. My question to you guys is this:

What lenses do you have? Are there any instructions or anything on how to get this setup just right (specifically like you, Stephen!). I've been doing a lot of reading in the Letus forum, but theres a lot of info there and some of it seems contradictory. Some say buy some Cavision rails, others say you don't need them. Some say eBay is a great place to get some good lenses, some say no.

Finally, does anyone have any pictures of their Letus setup with the A1? Thanks!

I don't use the Letus, but I might make some recommendations for Nikkor lenses, since I shot a lot of slide shows years ago with a Nikon package. The 24mm, 35mm and 105mm lenses were what I used more than anything. They always had two versions, a slow one and a fast one. The fast ones usually weren't quite as sharp but would be better for your purposes, since the combination of a lens and the adapter eats quite a bit of light before it gets to your camera's lens.
