Can this be easily removed? Or is it a semi-permanent installation? Can I take it on and off easily?
Asked by: Joshua
The ZEISS Lens Gear (Mini) are slid onto the lens and attached to the focus ring of the lens simply by turning the two counteracting rings. This means the ZEISS Lens Gears can be attached in a flash and the design is tool less so it can be removed quickly.

question

Is that gear fit for work on the Leica R lens? 21mm f4.028mm f2.835mm f2.050mm f2.090mm f2.0135mm f2.8
Asked by: RADICAL
These rings are designed for the Otus, Milvus and Loxia line of modern Zeiss lenses. That being said, all of the Leica R lenses you list except the 90mm f/2.0 are within the size limits of the rings. Therefore it is possible that they will work. However, seeing that this combination is unknown, we have to say you will be proceeding on your own recognizance.

question

Does this fit the Sony 18-105mm f/4 G OSS?
Asked by: Marc Lyon G.
This gear may be too small for the 18-105mm, plus it is meant for specific Zeiss lenses. Instead we recommend something like the Wide Open Camera Universal Lens Gear, this will work with the 18-105mm.https://bhpho.to/2mtNn2G
