    Tim,

    Have you actually put these various adapters side by side to compare how fast they are as well as relative sharpness, DOF characteristics, and bokeh qualities? I'm thinking especially of the recent Brevis versions vs. the SG Pro.

    I'm asking because you've clearly stated your preference for the SGPro and I'm wondering how much direct comparison might have been involved in that.

    I really like what you've done with this forum by the way. It's filled a big hole inon DVXUser and your explanation of the various mechanisms is great.
    I understand also that you don't probably don't want to be perceived as hawking one manufacturer over another.

    My concern is that I have seen alot of claims made for one adapter or another only to find that the person making the claims had not carefully compared them. As the units themselves are often updated and improved it may be hard to do as well.

    How is focus effected by an adapter. That is, does the 35mm lense then focus or does it remain locked while the camera still focuses? What of zoom.

    the camera remains locked on the GG, the 35mm lens does all the focusing now.

    Can someone direct me to the best info on this site or elsewhere about reducers condensers, achromats and how to choose. Maybe there is some formula or some chart out there that can help me understand better how they play a part in the whole 35mm adapter game. IG

    if the camera is focused on the gg and the focus / iris is in the slr lense, how the hell do you zoom?

    sorry for being an newbie but hey, if you don't ask...

    You need an SLR zoom lens on the front end.

    Why bother.. why don't you just use a medium format adapter. using a groundglass that's 2 1/4 x 1 5/8 like my adapter.
