    Quick update, in case anyone else is curious...
    I just checked out a set of Super Speeds and they won't work on Revolva--like, not even close. Looks like some of the lenses in the K35 set will work and some won't. The backs of the Angenieux lenses look pretty flat so they're good to go (can't vouch for every lens they make).

    I love this line from the Kippertie site (in regards to lenses with rear projections longer than 21mm): "Note that lenses of this type tend often to be less than ideal on digital systems due to the acute angle of light striking the sensor."
    Super Speeds are less than ideal on digital sensors?! Let's talk about this, Kippertie.

    Not John, nor Kippertie. But he is referring to the lack of telecentricity. Generally speaking, digital "ideally" plays better with telecentric lenses angle of incident of light entering the photosite wells.

    That said, from a creative perspective, use whatever the hell produces the image you are happiest with for your project.

    Also to note, the limitation on lenses longer than 21mm is more of space limitation. John's already packing a whole punch of stuff behind the lens to make the Revolva work. It's just not compatible with everything out there. But where and when it does play nice, it's an alarmingly useful tool.

    Yeah I have the EF Revolva and it's life changing. Seems like the PL version isn't for those who use vintage lenses. Sad day!

    Just adding my 5c after receiving my EF Revolva Kit. Installed on a CF 6K Weapon.

    First impressions, really great! Colour shift extremely minimal throughout all the density's, less than some sets of Schnieder IRND's i have had from rental kits.
    Speed of changing cartridges is pretty good too although you do need to be careful as it can be slightly hard to hold on to once its all the way out.
    Flare so far is pretty good, a slight change in the gate flate but too be expected.
    It uses the exact same control board as the Red EF mount so obviously preforms identically.
    Rolling through the filters does take a couple turns to change each density but you get used to it

    I have the Wooden Camera Easy Top (the one with lots of I/O connectors). I had a local machinist shave 5mm off the front face and then add a bevel again (took 45minutes of his time). It fits perfectly now and even managed to save the front row of threads.

    Thanks for sharing that pic. I have the same Wooden Camera top so it’s good to see it can work with a modification!

    Kippertie now offers a cartridge for internal diffusion options in addition to their neutral density filters, similar effects to what they have offered for OLPF replacement. The cartridge has carbon, gold, pearl, and clear diffusion options. I just ordered a couple, think they will be great for indoors/studio/night and they work with all OLPF's. They are at the level 1 (lower) amount of diffusion and cost $500 apiece.

    Does this work with the Monstro + Otus lenses or not?

    From experience Monstro and Otus with Revolva should be just fine.
