Could this work for the Konvas 1m and KSR-1:

It looks like it attaches to standard 15mm rods and is belt drive so this SHOULD work like a charm. I actually thought about trying to fabricate a belt drive FF for my little KSR-1 so seeing this made me wonder particularly because the more modern OCT-18 mount lenses did away with the mouse ears and use the serrated grip for focus adjustment. What's your opinion? B)

I think, can be work.
Good idea.
To set a holder of 15 mm rods on left side of body.

There are also now follow focuses from ARRI and (soon) OConnor that use a rubber wheel to turn the focus ring via friction. These might work as well.

Speaking of the rubber wheel idea, there was a vendor at Cinegear last year that was making just such a device. His booth was full of HDSLR goodies. I'll see if I can find the name tonight, but you could look under the Cinegear vendors list.
