I've never seen 62mm step-down rings selling on the Letus official website.

What ring do you use to attach the adapter to your V1? Where did you buy it?

Thanks.

Hi Pedro, looks real good !

Did you experience any problems setting up the letus extreme? How long did it take from receiving the letus to set-up and get working well?

I am thinking of buying it myself.

many thanks

Hi

No i didn´t have any problems. The only thing i found is the v1, like the hvx 200, is shifted to the right, so you have to zoom further, but i'm very pleased with it.

Pedro, did you use a follow-focus and matte-box system as well? Which manufacturer?

I must say your movie has really inspired me to stop thirsting after the latest gadgets and just go out and shoot - but the ability to control depth of field is fantastic - i wonder why sony just doesnt build a HDV camera with a 35mm lens system ?

...one last thing

Pedro, which ring size did you buy on the Letus site, and what was the name of the step-down-ring you bought on ebay?

many thanks for your help.

I bought the 77mm letus extreme, because in the future i will buy a EX1 or EX3, i also bought the nikon mount.
The ring is 62mm to 77mm step up ring.
