Redrock M3 Cinena Lens Adapter

In reading various forums about the Sony PMW-F3 yesterday, I came across someone who wrote that the arrival of large-sensor video cameras "will be the end of lens adapters." Except that clearly it isn't, because in my mailbox this very morning was an announcement from Redrock about the upcoming M3 Cinema Lens Adapter, which is supposed to start shipping on December 1st:

The M3 is as close as you will get to perfection in a lens adapter, delivering razor sharp images with a beautiful look, wrapped in a rugged professional body and support system. The many technical achievements and enhancements of the M3 include:
  • Monster oversized optics delivery approximately ¼ stop: nearly transparent operation
  • High rpm spinning ground glass enables stopping the lens down to f16 or more without showing grain
  • State of the art power system with locking lemo-style connectors, auxiliary power ports, rechargeable batteries, and power status indicators
  • Precision factory lens collimation and an easy-to-use, tool-less collimating lens mount for added adjustments
  • Pro housing: uni-body design, precision machined aluminum, hard anodized finish, rubberized weather-resistant port covers, cleaning port, and fully gasketed for silent operation
  • Tool-less setup and operation, including new baseplate with thumbscrews, and breach lock camera connector, and integrated flip optics
