  1. Inner diameter of Panasonic 8mm MFT ring?

    #1

    I am receiving the new Samyang 7.5mm FE for MicroFourThirds for a panorama test early next week and I was wondering if I could use the R1 lens ring for the Panasonic 8mm MFT for this lens.

    I anyone could give me the inner diameter and the the thickness (or should I say wideness) of the Panasonic ring, I can figure out next week if it will fit or not

    Thanks

    Karel

    You might be lucky Karel: Panasonic is shown with 61mm, Samyang 60mm. But it seams to cover all movable parts of the Samyang.

    Thanks, Heinz.

    I guess it is worth taking a shot at, seeing the pictures.

    The search for the ring is my next quest now :-)

    I really do not want to make a ring if there is something already very close that I can modify. I also have the lens on order. Hopefully it gets here before my trip next month.

    May be this one might be an alternative to NN Lens Ring:

    http://www.novoflex.com/en/products/...dapter-finder/

    Best place to ask for the lens ring should be www.cameranu.nl They have the best stock in NN Parts in Nl. I already searched our NL dealers websites.Nothing. But may be they have it in stock, websites are not so up to date. But I am afraid they only have the popular rings in stock like sigma and Samyang 8mm, nikkor 10.5/16. New orders often take 4 - 6 weeks. In this case I step over to www.magasin/skivr , our friend Vincen. Just ordered the new Tripod adapter at 07-09-11, Sepa EU money overboeking, will be in NL today with shipment TNT economy express €25.xx costs. Normal TNT is around €16.

    Urk - cameranu is not far away from you isn't it Karel?

    I should have the Samyang 7.5mm lens, R1 with Panasonic 8mm lens ring and an E-P3 to test next week.

    Thanks Heinz,

    I did mail Vincèn (I am a 'regular' with skivr) and he confirmed that he could deliver by the end of next week.
    b.t.w: does the Novoflex fit the R1?
