I asked Phil this on the Alternative imaging forum but does anyone else know the answer?

I haven't seen/heard about pricing yet. I don't understand the other questions....sorry. You have to focus and expose using the manual controls on the 35mm lens.

I'm talking about the VTR trigger on the lens, it will be removed if you take off the stock EX lens. You still have the trigger on the camera top plate but its in a pretty awkward postion for hand held stuff. Other HDV cameras normally have LANC or some other method offered to do this which allows a remote with VTR trigger to be attached to a handgrip or whatever, the EX-3 only has a propriatery Sony socket on its back plate which as far as I'm aware the controller is very expensive. Hope that makes thing clear.

The Fujinon 2/3 inch EX adapter has a Fujinon remote socket on its adapter http://www.abelcine.com/store/produc...cat=248&page=1. From there you can trigger from a broadcast zoom demand or controller. I was wondering if the Letus mount had a similar arrangement.

It's $6000 for the Pro and $3500 for the compact. Its been mentioned several times, including Phil Bloom on his blog and by Hein himself.

Steve,

But how about the price of the special EX3 version, that's what we're talking about here. Looking at Phil's picture it looks to be a pro with a special adapter but can anyone confirm this?

Those are prices for the B4 mount versions not the special one (shown in the photo above) for the EX3.

The good news is that I've "heard" that the EX3 version will have an adjustment for three things. 1) Focus 2) Zoom 3) Aperture

I for one am VERY happy to learn I won't have to give up my "master aperture adjustment" by switching to a rely lens. Now let's just hope it doesn't cost more than $3000. (my guess is that it's going to be quite a bit more because it has these three things)
