Any chance that fujinon's E-mount cine lenses can be mounted

Tue Aug 22, 2017 2:54 pm

I've recently got the fujinon's 18-55 T2.9 & 50-135 T2.9 cine zoom lenses for my FS7 and am pretty satisfied and amazed. I understand that E mount flange distance is 17mm, but still wonder it is possible to mount it onto my arri mini. It might sound silly, but the distance between the sensor glass cover and the sensor is surprisingly closed - almost as close as FS7's. I've tried googling, but haven't found the distance between the cover and the sensor for mini's.

Sorry for my english, i'm not a native speaker :? :?

Dear Dave,


the flange depth for PL mount is 52.00mm, from that plane measured inside onto the FSND filter mechanism you have 39,5mm.
So 52-39,5=12,5mm
Theoretically that should work, you only need someone to make a mount/adapter.

By the way, our 16mm lenses leave only 1mm before they would hit the sensor - so they fit (on your own risk!), but are damn close to the action.

An we are not talking about coverage here....

Best,
Jan
