    Taylor Hobson lenses were the go to lenses for all the great hollywood films.
    Many directors would insist on them.

    Did you know that Leitz bought in their first ultrafast lens design from Taylor, Taylor & Hobson? Early versions of the Xenon 50/1.5 were allegedly stamped with "Taylor-Hobson Patent".

    Thanks Steve :) and, ironically, we have a Arri-M4/3 adapter, albeit from FotoDiox and not sure if they have a Arri-FX adapter
    with FX= Fuji X ;)

    Cheers,

    Very cool and thanks, Andrew :) and, ironically, the fellow who was fiddling with combo was / is still a Leica disciple ;)

    Cheers,

    Thanks very much, Terry :), and I checked out the supplier that we use, Fotodiox, and they have one :D although, I honestly, think
    if anyone purchases the Arri lens, it would probably be for a Panasonic GH5 or, perhaps, a Sony A7 ?? and, ideally, a Panasonic
    cuz we have the adapter ;)

    Cheers,

    Jack
