    Any advice on good quality, cheap follow focus gears for micro 4/3 lenses? I need them for the Oly 17mm f1.8, as well as the Oly 12-40 f2.8. My follow focus is the RT motion wireless system. (It's for our Epic rig, but I want to use a modified version of it with a GX7 we have acquired.) I realize the auto focus is very good, but we are shooting a 70's-set 16mm-look, and I don't want to see any electronic-looking autofocus. Since we have the wireless, I figure, why not use it?

    Are you looking for a custom fit ring or a generic one? I am not aware of one specific for those lenses. I have seen the redrock and the cinevate adjustable fit rings and both were good quality. A friend of mine tried some of the cheap ebay made in China ones and they sucked. One broke the first time he used it and the other one slipped a bit.

    On a side note let us know how that wireless follow focus works out.

    Thanks, the Cinevate offerings look great! I'll post again when I get things up and running.
    Cheers!
