How much weight on a taking lens to not need a lens support

John Palmer

Recommended Posts

Hey, I have an anamorphic lens that weighs 1 pound and 1 ounce. It seems to me that it is a little too much weight for the mount but I dont know. I'm just not sure how weight the lens & body mount could take without risk of damage. Right now I do not have a proper lens support but have rigged my matte box so that it can rest on it, which works but is not ideal.


Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this.

The lens (Dyaliscope junior 16) is attached to a canon FD f1.4 on a gh4

      Selling my Iscorama Pre-36 beauty with the original taking lens! I bought this for a feature film back in 2014 and paid way more than my asking price. Used only indoors for 7 solid days. Upon completion the lens went back into the pelican where it was stored in my studio for the past 3 years. I've held onto it for sentimentality and because it's gorgeous but now it's time to say goodbye. No scratches. Very clean glass. No fungus. The usual internal dust inside the elements as one would expect from a lens that's from the late 1960s. Some mild oxidation on the physical barrel that bars no effect on image quality.
      I really love this lens and I'm sad to see it go but hopefully it will find a better home with more usage. I'm located in Los Angeles, California but will ship worldwide upon payment.
