    (AF-S lenses have the focus motor in the lens; earlier AF-D/AF lenses utilized a focus motor in the camera body.)

    That stands to reason. BTW, knowing Jarred, he'll probably give us a another little nugget of Nikon love tonight.

    Looking good, team...
    Too be honest Fries engimeering were doing that with theit Mitchell conversions from the mid 1970's on, My 35R3 has a PL, BNCR, Panavision & Nikon mounts. 4 screws as well!

    This mount may be worth the wait. We've had problems with our "third-party" mount and the customer service has been less than satisfactory.

    Nicholas .. Which adapter do you have? What issues have you been having? I suspect the Red Nikon mount is a ways off yet and then there will be the issue of pent up demand so I am looking to purchase something until the real mount is available. The front runner right now is the Optitek.
