    Hey David, no this is the canon Ti mount from RED and I just stuck a leica R to EOS click on adaptor to test the glass before deciding if I want to do a more pro cine mod. I was thinking about getting an R mount which cine-mods makes but I happened to finally take delivery of my Ti canon mount which as many others have mentioned, is extremely well engineered and rock solid. I have yet to test it with actual canon glass but will do soon.

    If you just want to test a lens on the cheap I would go with this option from fotodiox and save yourself a couple of hundred dollars. Its clicks right on and any play or give or might have, the canon Ti mount from RED screws down on the lens PL mount style so its all rock solid in the end. Of course this is not my end solution.

    The gold standard for those looking to convert R glass to EOS is the one from leitax.com...same one Duclos will use when I send my lens in to get it modded.

    Damn you Clayton! I've been working on the set of primes. Just picked up the 35 and 50 Summiluxes and have been ready to pull the trigger on the rest for the last few days but have been hesitant for some reason... LoL.

    +1 for the Leitax... I had the FotoDiox before and nothing comes close to the Leitax... when you combine that with the Red Eos mount you have a very solid foundation!

    You really need to sell that lens quick...I hear the reason so few exist is that they damage the sensor :)
