    Hi Andrew, it's unfortunately impossible. The focal flange of the mount is reduced by ~4.5mm due to the focal length reducer. So yes, you could mount a focal length reducer in the OLPF, but the measurements would be all wrong. Our system is designed in a way so that you can swap the regular mount with a SpeedMount without having to readjust the sensor position.

    Still no DSMC1 hope with the new design?

    (I apologize for continuing to ask... I just need to make sure).

    Hi Mike,

    unfortunately, it's not possible to make a DSMC1 version with the current optical design.

    After waiting for weeks to receive the prototype parts, we finally yesterday fully assembled the SpeedMount EF mk2. We will make some minor adjustments to the design and start the first production run next week. So everyone who preordered a SpeedMount mk2 PL or EF should receive them in June.

    We will offer for all SpeedMount EF mk1 customers an upgrade to mk2 for free when they are finished.

    Attached is a photo of the first fully working SpeedMount EF mk2 prototype on our Helium and a photo of the SpeedMount PL mk2.

    This is great news! Mk1 has been performing great for me so far. If the locking pin gets an improvement, this will be a welcomed upgrade for sure.

    This is such a brilliant innovation. Can't justify the expense just yet... but it's a hell of a lot cheaper than a Monstro ;-) Would love to pair this with my Zeiss ZF primes getting converted to EF mount at the moment at Duclos :-)

    The SpeedMount mk1 and mk2 share the same optical block, so there's no optical difference (the tolerances are tighter on mk2 to guarantee that the optical performace is best possible for all units).

    Here's a music video that was shot on the SpeedMount PL mk1 some weeks ago:

    I'm with the SpeedMount EF mk2 prototype in the Bright Tangerine booth #54 at Cine Gear Expo. Hope to see many of you there!
