        That ActionProducts kit looks great. I'd love to see more photos. Keep in mind that it also gives a standard 100mm front barrel size for matteboxes.

        Does RP lens charge $250 for gearing and iris bearing removal/80mm lens hood or just for their gears?

          Damn, I'm starting to think I'm in the wrong line of work. I should be making film gear so I can inflate the prices by 1000% and strike it rich.

          $300 for a freaking gear......give me a break....

          I think I should just make my own and sell them for $40 or cheaper.

            $250 is for everything. I recall someone on this forum getting their nikons converted by rplens and being very pleased.

              Yeah you think its a lot but gear teeth are difficult to cut. Theres 100ish teeth that all need cutting out, mounting in a machine and all the diameters need calculating so the teeth are the right shape.

              It looks simple and cheap, but it really isn't. The drive gears on the Hocus Focus are THEEE most expensive single part of the whole unit.

                Hehe..

                You are asking where can you get the most slick designed gears for the price cheapest out of all..

                That math is not gonna work..

                If you want cheap and durable, go with Indian rip-off..

                Set of six for 90$ or something like that.. I am using them for more than year now, and no problems and complains.. No brainer..

                cheers

                  I don't necessarily need the slickest designed gears. Just something that works and doesn't look like it needs duct tape to make it work. Do you have a link to the gears you purchased? Thanks for the 411.
