    Hey Evin, No mention in your gear list of a missing Nikon mount (missing from Jarrard's desk that is).

    It would be nice to hear something about the Nikon mount's performance in the final writeup as well.

    Early Prototype.... Iris worked great every lens every time all the time no hiccups, with f-stop display on LCD. We did not test AF or remote electronic focus - was it even enabled ?

    Based on what we saw yesterday I would expect that the final Nikon mount will be equal in function to the Canon one.

    I'd like to say thanks to Evin Grant, Matt Duclos, Matt Uhry, Luis Flores, and the team over at Duclos for having me out and helping out with everything. It was a fascinating experience with some very interesting results. Some surprising, some not very surprising at all.

    I was mostly a pair of hands, "flare boy", detail checker, and an extra pair of eyes for the tests.

    Can't wait to see the imagery. I've been digesting the results all night.

    The Prototype Nikon mount performed wonderfully, again they nailed the design when it comes to the mounts. I have to have one of these.

    This is a TERRIBLE picture of the mount so please excuse the picture because my pic SUCKS, but you can be assure its very nicely done and when the Nikon lenses were put onto it worked like a charm.

    Thank you guys for coming out and Thanks to Duclos, Jarred, Red, Optitek and Lensrentals.com for helping make this test happen.
    Now I just have to process and post all this info...


    The Red Nikon mount simply works, it's solid, the apertures change smooth as butter, I did ask for the AF to be disabled since I knew I was going to critically focus each shot by eye. However I expect the final production mounts to be everything we've been promised, there sould be no functional difference between shooting Nikon G Vs. Canon EF.
