You can get them from ARRI in New York. They used to have two kinds, the ones made by ARRI/Zeiss, for like $60 apiece, or some they make in house for about $20 apiece.

Best,

On eBay

We are planning to make our cups (PL and OCT-19) by March too.
I saw plastic Arri cups - they are great.
Ones selling on eBay are made of rubber, and I've purchased one to show our techs what our cups should look like :-)
Good cup, with one disadvantage - it is bit too big and this may cause a lens drop out of it if you try to lift a lens holding it by this cup. Especially, if the lens is heavy.
Not sure though if our cups will be better. But they'll have our RafCamera logo, most probably, so they'll become collectibles in 50 years :-)

It would serve a camera assistant right if they lifted a lens by the cap alone. That's just plain stupid.

We have them for sale at Abel. I know we have them in stock in NY and probably in LA as well.
