Once purchased, is it possible to switch lens mounts? I'd like to be able to move between PL and Canon RF
Asked by: Barry
Yes you will be able to switch to different lens mounts using the Interchange Mount System (IMS) kits for LWZ.3. But the choices are PL, EF (Canon), E(Sony), F(Nikon) or Micro 4/3rds. We do not have an RF option at the moment.

question

At what T stop does the lens start to go down in exposure?
Asked by: Jan S.
On the ZEISS LWZ.3 zoom lens, the aperture ramping is linear from 21mm - 100mm, meaning as you rack the zoom at wide open aperture, the light transmission changes from T2.9 - T3.9 in continuous, even steps.

question

Can the Zeiss LWZ.3 be used with a speed booster? I want to put it on a GH5S without the full 2x crop
Asked by: Mark
The ZEISS Lightweight Zoom LWZ.3 can be used with speed booster adapters as long as the lens mount is compatible. Most of these adapters are F-Mount to MFT-Mount, so you would have to order the lens with the F mount (item number 2149-225) or by changing the mount on an existing PL or EF mount lens with the IMS F accessory (item 2152-133).
