    Comments about FGM08-28 Small Film/Cine Lens Gear for Cavision Follow Focus Systems:

    It was a choice between this, or a gear ring for $49.50, which would not have fit my Canon 100mm Macro F.2.8 L correctly. Cavision has a gap in gear ring sizes, which does not cover all Canon lens barrel sizes... Instead, just pick up this gear, and change it when you need to. Works fine with my Canon L Series lenses, and much less expensive than the gear rings.

      It's really easy to set up. The follow Focus is small but pretty smooth. The only problem is the 0.6 gears, what limits you. But it can easily be fixed with the 0.8 one. Bought apart. Good purchase.

        Comments about FGM08-28 Small Film/Cine Lens Gear for Cavision Follow Focus Systems:

        I already owned a CAVision follow focus which I used on my broadcast video camera. Recently I purchased a Canon 5DmkII camera package and wanted to make use of my existing gear instead of having to buy all new gear. This small gear was easily swapped out on my follow focus, allowing me to pull focus on my Canon SLR lenses with the Redrock Micro gears attached. I then can easily remove it and swap back the Fujinon gear when I need to shoot with my broadcast lens.
