    Hi there! is this lens still available? I'd like to know some things about it:

    What is the widest lens you can use with the isco?


    what is the close focus distance?

    Sorry, it's sold by now.

    I believe Helios was the widest lens I used with the GH5 + SB. I don't remember the exact numbers for the min. focusing distances, but should be somewhere around 1.2-1.5 meters.

    I have the FVD16a from Rapido and it's a really good performer. No degradation of the image and sharp wide open. Concerning the import taxes I asked if they could ship with a low invoice rate. If customs doesn't open the box check the real value the import tax is really low, I only paid €26 to customs. It's no guarantee though but it worked out for me.

    I noticed that it is a bit heavier the the SLR Rangefinder, are you able to mount it when shooting on the a crane2? Thanks!

    I'm not quite sure what to think of them, to be honest.

    If they cost 100-200$, then I'd say go for it, but they're usually listed for at least 400$. 

    At this price point, I'd prefer buying FVD16A from Rapido which sells for 550$.

    Yep, the tend to sale around 400 dollars. All i know is that they are based on a helicoid. Rapido have shown it's great quality, unfortunately it's cost much higher due the import charges to europe. So could these home made variable diopters be as good as the rapido? The wide open tests are great. The "B&H focuser" (as JSD calls it) is also great alternative, unfortunately, overseas again, yet i don't see a big compromise in the image quality.

    Thanks for your replies!
