  1. I have a Zeiss Milvus ( CINE ) lens set for EF mount for sale. This set consist of these three lenses:

    21mm f2.8 - $985
    35mm f2. - $845

    Looking for $2600 for the set.

    These lenses are Nikon models ( manual iris control ) that have been professionally converted to EF mount. 

    The lenses come with follow focus gear rings, and all three lenses have Dulcos 77mm front rings for the included 77mm front caps.

    The lens bodies are in excellent condition with perfect glass.  If you have an offer send me PM. I am located in the DFW area of Texas

    I just read on the BM forums that CVP only had 1 camera delivered to them.

    Pretty much the same thing here in the states, only 50 cameras arrived this week, and all were demo cameras for stores. This info is from Hot Rod Cameras. I'm first on their list, and they have promised me a camera next week as they have been promised by US BMD distribution to receive another order next week, but they do not know the volume of the shipment yet.

  4. Back with the OG Pocket I felt like B&H was telling me anything they felt they needed to, to secure my order, they pretty much told me I was within the first 10 orders they had received, and I was guaranteed to get my camera before I would ordering elsewhere. During my first call inquiring about delivery and my place in line, the first 10 statement I received when ordering was refuted by different sales rep. They told me something different each time I called. Late I found out a small camera shop had a few in stock, I called placed my order, received my pocket with in three days ( this was after all the ebay price gouging ) Since then I have avoided B&H just because I think they arent going out of there way to be upfront with B&H pre-orders.

    Since then all my pre-orders have been with Hot Rod. I like that if they don't know they will tell you they don't know. There is no estimate games,  and no changes in delivery times because they will only tell you what they can guarantee.

    Nobody has their pre-order yet. It'll be December for most of you.

    You're probably right about him not receiving a pre-order, but the guy does have a few feature films in Hong Kong, maybe that was his ticket?  Either way, he's got camera, and we dont make those decisions... 🤷‍♂️ Your post make it seem like you'd be happy if no one get's the camera because you didn't.

    Anyway, It's your site, I'll leave you to it. No more responses from me on the matter.

    And I totally see the logic giving a demo unit to someone with 55 subscribers.


    But are we not considering that maybe it's possible the camera was his pre-order, or the fact that he was director, actor, and producer for a few films in Hong Kong?

    I hoped you were past all that since you decided to go with the X-T3, guess not 😕

    I preordered P4K at HOTROD on 30 august and they answered me now about my order:

    "We spoke to both Distribution and Blackmagic in the US this morning and there is still no confirmed release date. You are currently 58 on our preorder list, but we have no idea how many cameras Blackmagic will ship in the first batch. We have ordered plenty of cameras to cover all of our preorders if they ship our full order"

    I also pre-ordered through HOTROD the day of BMD's NAB announcement.

    I'm 1st on their list, and that is the same feedback I received from them on the ship date.

  8. Andrew,

    Jun could also view your comments about him as snide. All because he got a camera, and you did not... It feels like you're jumping to critique all video's uploaded by someone with a Pocket 4K in another attempt to support your stance that BMD is giving cameras to the wrong people.


    I remember a thread here, some time back where more than a few guys critiqued your color grade on one of your Canon videos, and you responded like you never thought you'd receive criticism.  You have threatened to quit this whole thing more than once, and people have always begged you to keep at it. People are here because they appreciate what you've created, but you pay way too much attention to the negative...  No one can argue the numbers your site gets, but your victim attitude isn't winning.

    In order to put this unfolding drama to an end, I'd propose we use the youtuber's way to end these disputes: a boxing match btw Andrew Reid vs. John Brawley (or a BM rep chosen in this forum).

    The venue might be the same Manchester's gin distillery where the BM event was held.

    The match has to be streamed live on vimeo, still to be decided whether to use a BMPCC 4k OR a Olympus E-M10 III.


    I see you planning, just make sure a specific person get's their invitation or your name might slandered for being a faulty fight promoter.

    Thank you for your cutting edge satire, very original.

    Original... No, but the proverbial phrase fits your situation like a glove as you called out Dan Sherman for being upset after the emotional mess you've displayed here throughout the last two days.

    B&H has the expected availability date listed as 10/5.

    That's typical B&H "expected delivery" nonsense in attempt to keep the orders coming in...  BMD are on record denying any involvement in giving them that date or any other date.  My vendor has spoke with the distributor, and they have no date as of yet but still planning for Sept for preorders.
