The Canon b4cm? Lets you use 2/3" c-mount lenses on broadcast 2/3" 3-chip body.

Has any one used this product? Being $2,000 it is costly over the cheaper alternatives from century optics. I wonder if the canon has a corrective lens for the 3-chip prism? I wouldnt mind putting some specialty c-mount lenses on my camera (Fuji makes a lot of 2/3" 5 megapixel c-mount primes, including a 1.8mm f1.4 circular fisheye (no typo its really 1.8mm)) Any feedback would be nice.

Thank you,

Hunter

Any one put a c-mount lens on a broadcast body? hmmm. I just put nikon AI lenses on my camera and becuase of the focal distance to the plane, it was macro to the extreme. Looking at fingerprints I could see how the skin folds. There is significant color fringing (in the blue/green I think). I am just looking for somekind of adapter with a 3-chip corrective lens (for the prism). Have any recommendations?
