Arri bayonet lens adapters
Posted 30 June 2016 - 02:02 PM
I have a bayonet super speed that I would like to convert to pl for light and occasional use on my sr3
Has anyone had any experience with either of these solutions?
The one I have has little Allen grub screws and is a little naff (the lens jolts when in the camera- but I only paid twenty quid so you get what you pay for!
Thanks in advance

There is a guy on the forum using the C7 one. He might give some thoughts. I think it has an aluminum alloy flange. Not wonderfull but may be OK. The twist-lock designs are a much better idea than the grub screw ones.
If it's a MK II or III with the eight screw mount then Visual Products sell PL hard mounts, but a bit more money. If you find a lens tech who is collimating/reshiming all the time then swapping the mounts should be cheap.

I have the C7 screw on one and its been totally fine on my Zeiss 10-100 MKII. Its certainly possible it might come loose at some point, but easy to re-tighten and make sure its seated. Just clean the hell out of your mount to make sure there is no dust or funky particles that might make the mount uneven. The mechanical locking one actually makes me a little nervous.
