LETUS 1/3 relay available!

I got a twitter update from letusdirect that stated: The long awaited 1/3" relay is now available! We have a few in stock and more on the way http://www.tinyurl.com/13relay.

Anyone else hear about this?

At last there's one available. I wonder how the quality is. What size threads are on the end of the lens? Can it be used with other adapters without altering the intended FOV adjustments? and how long is the lens in length?

Very interesting. It says "35mm Full frame size" so I supose that DOF is the same as 35mm. Unfortunately there are very few info in the prduct's page.
If anyone find a review or link to a review please share it.
And is cheaper than Copla...

I am VERY interested in this..

I am now sitting on the fence between the P+S mini35c and the letus 1/3" relay with the letus Ultimate. I originally looked at the letus but the lack of a 1/3" relay lens, eliminated them as a candidate.

I went to the letusdirect website but there does not seem to be a link to it from their product page... unless i am doing something wrong?

tried phoning them but got left on hold and then the "leave a message" recording came on... that is something that really concerns me about letus.. they seem to have horrible support. I am not sure they are a wise purchase when it comes to that..

Someone know if it's possible to mount this relay on the XLH1, or is there another relay lens coming out soon for the canon camera?

kudos to the letus folks... they just made their adapters more attractive to the 1/3" camera loyalists. I hope others will follow.

Is this the only way to attach a Letus to the HD-250?

I'd love to use my Letus35 Elite, but $2600 seems a bit steep

I'm using a non-flipped Brevis35 MP.1 on my HD200 with no problems, which is basically the same as using the Letus. Doing the image reversing with the HD200.

The only caveat is that you need to use the Macro ring on the stock HD200/250 lens to achieve backfocus and image framing instead of just the lens focus.
You actually use them both together.

Been using Nikon 35mm lenses with the Brevis with pretty nice results.
