I'm a happy owner of a Letus Extreme adapter, but I would like to take more professional videos, using more professional lenses.
I actually own a good TV Zoom Lens ( VCL-915BYA ) and I would like to know if there are any ways I can mount it on the Letus. I know that you can use some Prime Lenses, but can I mount a TV Zoom Lens?
Thanks for your help!

It would be wise now that you own an adaptor to start skooling yourself of the techinical elements of these adaptors and the lenses that are ideal, most TV lenses are made for 2/3in sensors (Sometimes 1/2in and 1/3in) 2/3in is roughly super16 film size you've got a piece of ground glass in that letus that is Full Frame 35mm which is much much bigger, so your TV Lens wasn't designed for and won't cover that piece of ground glass ( which is your intermedate film plane ) Yes you can get 2/3in primes but even these won't cover your Ground Glass, you need 35mm Still (Nikon F, Canon EF, Canon FD, Minlota, Pentax M42, etc lenses) or S35 Cinema Lenses (PL Mount or OCT9 Mount) You can get Zoom's and Primes in both, but they need to cover the Ground Glass, so 35mm Lenses, I have never hear of a B4 or B3 mount for a 35mm adaptor, it just wouldn't make sence and deafet the purpose of the adaptor itself.
