    I tried the 24-70 2.8 E new generation Nikon lens and it worked to some degree but did not work between 2.8 and 4.0 as I remember. I spoke with support and they have limited support for E type lenses (sounds like the new Art) but until it is supported, it will not work. All the lenses with the mechanical lever work similarly to one another, so they all tend to work on iris. Hopefully, the next release will support more lenses in Nikon mount.

    Thanks Jon, sounds like its an E lens issue then. Such a shame as, as you say, even with unsupported lenses, if they have the mechanical lever they still work (well at least have aperture control).

    Now I know why my Nikon 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR was giving me trouble night of the Supermoon. Funny it worked first time I powered camera, then on battery change it never registered. Good thing the moon is really bright.

    It is so unfortunate that Red is not very supportive of Nikon glass. I have been waiting about 3 years for Red to support the 20mm f 1.8 AF-s. Still waiting.

    Have you asked support?

    Made phone calls and offered my lens to map and verify. Told by bomb squad guy about 18 months ago of the offer. He called back and said Red did not want the loan of the lens.

    Perhaps this was overlooked. RED has been great implementing firmware to support lenses. Remember Nikkor has for most part changed design and functionality several times through the years so it's never as easy for a universal mount to recognize everything right out of the box.

    Other AF-s G lenses have been supported. Even some obscure D lenses have been supported, although obviously the autofocus can not be supported on those lenses because it is a screw drive which Red mounts are not equipped for. Still hopefully waiting for the 20mm 1.8 AF-s love from Red. It is such a wonderful lens.

    How does that 20mm 1.8 look wide open?

    The 20mm 1.8 is wonderful wide open. Sharp and nice contrast. Good rumor has it that Panavision rehouses Nikon AF-s primes. I think it is a bargan lens for the price. AF-s lenses are not tight tolerance lenses so they can focus fast on still cameras. I have noticed that all
    AF-s lenses exhibit image shift to one degree or another when manually focused, however there is little or no image shift when the internal lens motor is used. This is why I crave for Red to support this particular lens.
