just got the mattebox

finally got the overpriced mattebox by chrosziel. sidewings are coming soon. also the schneider 4x4 filters.

unfortunately the rods don't fit the wide angle lens. the rods are barely short enough for the 20x lens. but not short enough for the 3x lens. kinda sad. not that rods will do anythign (without the follow focus) other than look cool but it helps with giving actors/talent/and clients a hollywood feel.

Robert, can you explain this in more detail? Do the rods show in the picture when the lens is in full wide? If so, buy some 15mm aluminum tube and cut it to the desired length. Should be no big deal.
