Hello.

I'm doing a show in US for a Norwegian tv company. We're shooting on the 900 PAL version. Interlaced.

I need a longer lens, ordinary SD. Will a lens rentet in the US work. I imagine it will, but unsure. Anyone know?

Thanks for any replies.

Yes, no difference between mount specs between PAL and NTSC cams.

Absolutely, but you'll need the rental house to input the shading info for the particular lens into your camera.
