  1. Thanks for posting the pictures Phil! I'm wondering how many were made in the first place and if there is a single one for sale somewhere...
  2. I hear you Tom, that's a lot of money for what it was. Did you get any good photo's with it when you had it? I'm hoping to find one at a reasonable price these days particularly because they have become more or less obsolete.
  3. Hi Alex yes that is what I've read as well. Hoping someone has one laying around without use.
  4. I guess this is a rare beast, does anyone even own one?
  5. Currently still looking for this lens, anyone selling?
  6. Thanks for the replies, indeed I am after using the more modern RS lenses, but with full manual control. At the moment it looks like Nauticam may come closest to what I'm looking for, so I will investigate that further.
  7. Thanks Alex! At the moment I'm actually looking for an unconverted, original lens, but thanks for the heads up anyway!
  8. Hi all, not sure if this belongs here or in the video forum, but probably both... Now that I have a general idea about what options there are for using the Nikonos RS lenses on digital bodies, there is one thing that seems to be missing. There have been manual focus adapters made by Gates and Nauticamcam, but exclusively for RED cinema camera's. Other companies offer lens conversions that allow autofocus on modern Nikon camera's, but this is not what I'm after. I would like to get manual focus and iris control, like Gates and Nauticam are offering, but on a Sony A7S III body. So no conversion to the lenses, just an adapter in the housing that allows focus and iris to be set from (large) knobs on the houding (ideally without the use of electronics). Does anyone know of a setup like this?
  9. Thanks a lot for your detailed answer Tom. I didn't realise even some modern Nikons had autofocus/aperture motors in the bodies. The last option (manual focus/iris control from the camera housing) is the one I'm after but I'll start a new thread on that. Thanks!
  10. So the RS lens is converted to standard Nikon DSLR mount? Do these lenses have their own internal focus and aperture motors? Do you think that after the conversion, the lens could be used on a different camera system (Sony A7 for example) with an autofocus adapter? Thanks.
  11. I'm looking for the Nikonos RS 13mm f/ 2.8 Fisheye lens (Nikon R-UW AF Fisheye Nikkor) in good condition. Please let me know if you have one for sale. Thanks, Tobias
  12. Hi all, I'm looking for the René Aumann 18mm f/ 2.8 lens for the Nikonos RS. Please let me know if you have one you'd like to sell. Thanks, Tobias.
