A1 + LetusEX - First Footage

Just took some of my first footage with the LetusEX/A1 combo. Later on I was able to give it a look on a 52in Plasma. It was gorgeous. This is my first time with a 35mm adapter of any sort and a follow focus.

Some mistakes in here on the moving subject but I don't even have my marshall yet. Also there is a small smudge visible on some of the shots that I have to find and remove (gotta love cleaning these things). This was done with the viewfinder and LCD to the best of my ability.

The screens look fantastic. Looking forward to the footage.

You mentioned using a follow focus -- I am looking around for follow focus options for the A1/LetusEX/Letus rails. May I ask what kind of follow focus are you using?

I'm using a Redrock FollowFocus. Even before I was able to actually USE it I had it on and was just playing with it without the Letus turned on and just messing around. Its smooth as butter. Very easy to use also. Thanks for the comments btw. I just added the footage link.

Is it possible that the overall sharpness degrades slightly with the Letus? I have the impression that the results with the bare Canon-lens are sharper.
What does the 50mm become in terms of focal length on the XH-A1?
