When this going to come for Sony E mount ?

When this going to come for Sony E mount ?
Asked by: Mohammed
Unfortunately the manufacturer has not yet announced plans for any additional mounting options. However you could use a pl to e mount adapter to appropriately mount this lens to an e mount body. We suggest the Metabones MB_PL-E-BT1 https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1194555-REG/metabones_mb_pl_e_bt1_pl_to_e_mount_adapter.html

I have a zcam f6 with PL or EF mount. Do I understand correctly that the zcam f6 is compatible with a PL mount? Only with the zcam with the EF mount is not compatible. the zcam f6 has a changeable mount. It's not entirely clear to me because the zcam is listed in the incompatible list
Asked by: Josip
Correct depending on which unit a end-user can be using due to the protruding rear elements, certain ZCAM EF cameras may not work with the Vazen 50mm lens. PL units should be fine but would double check with manufacture.

Is the image circle 43mm? (same as the 85?)
Asked by: Zak
Vazen has not provided an exact measurement for the image circle on their 50mm T2.1 1.8x Full-Frame Anamorphic Lens, but it does cover RED Open Gate and Alexa LF Open Gate. Therefore, it is at least 46.31mm.
