So Zero-D means zero distortion i guess? and this plus the Tstop and angle of view are the differences between 9mm and 7.5mm?
Asked by: Avid
The Zero-D would indicate as the manufacturer states, "close-to-zero distortion". The main differences between the 2 lenses, 9mm (T2.9, 100° Angle of View) and the 7.5mm (T2.1, 110° Angle of View) are the T stops and the angles of view.

Does the Komodo get any info from this lens. Such as what distance it's focused at, or F-stop?
Asked by: Ernest
no it will not, the RF mount on the Komodo is NOT a smart mount, in addition to that this lens does NOT have any electronic contacts to pass data to any camera

Does it work with a generic 4x6 (100mm) square filter holder? If yes, how is the vignetting when using a square filter?
Asked by: Ke
It does work with generic filter holders, but due to variances in design, the amount of vignetting will vary. For instance, if you need to use an adapter or step-up ring, it might be more apparent on the sides. Despite this, with a 113 degree angle, if it does vignette, it should not be very severe.

This lens does not have a whether seal gasket, would that be an issue when using it with the Komodo having in mind that I would not shoot under wet conditions only dry conditions..? Would dust become a problem over time ?
Asked by: Michael
That is correct. I don't believe we sell it but try using the CAP IT! Covers. They are expendable AKS that protect cinema cameras from dust and rain.
