Focus lenses

I found some new focus lenses on Ebay 262923070670 for over $100 off new price so is it worth mounting them myself?

RE: Focus lenses

I wouldn't unless you have e-z mounts

RE: Focus lenses

E-z mounts are great, makes lens easy to clean & save a heap of cash. invest in a couple of them.

RE: Focus lenses

I don't think so jjl1210!

RE: Focus lenses

I use nothing but II-IV optics.

RE: Focus lenses

just ordered an EZ mount and a Black Magic lens. Anybody tried them??

RE: Focus lenses

They both work great. It can be a little tricky getting the lens installed of the EZ mount because of the o-ring. Tip, moisten your finger and rub it around the o-ring, this will help the lens slip down easier. Let me know if you hae any questions.

Also with the Black Magic lens. FYI - if you use a HeNe beam or the piercing sensor it wont work with the Black Magic lens. The beam can't pass through that coating.

RE: Focus lenses

awesome thanks mate!!

RE: Focus lenses

They just dropped the price for 2 lenses down to $325 (262942089972) so how can I go wrong.

RE: Focus lenses

jjl1210 - who is the manufacturer? I'm curious.

RE: Focus lenses

you can go wrong by not installing them properly and reducing ur savings into a waste of money "if its too good to be true it probably is" thumbsup
