Wide fov lens for the old FLEX:V100

Post by mores_p » Mon Dec 13, 2010 2:59 pm

Hello,

I want to buy wide fov lens for the old FLEX:V100 cameras. Since the FLEX:V100 lens are out of stock, Can I use the wide fov lens for the new FLEX:V100R2 instead? Are they compatible?

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

Unfortunately, the newer V100:R2 lenses are too large for the original design. The lens body blocks part of the camera's IR ring when installed in the older model.

Hi Seth,

Is there still a way to purchase the older V100 lenses?

Dear Mark,

Unfortunately we no longer have them in stock. You can look at purchasing a similiar sytle M12 lens online.

Hi Vincent,

But as Seth said, "the newer V100:R2 lenses are too large for the original design. The lens body blocks part of the camera's IR ring when installed in the older model."

I am a bit confused now. Can you confirm if the newer V100:R2 lenses will work with the old V100 cameras? I am happy to buy the newer lenses if they work.

The newer M12 lenses we sell will not fit in the original V100 cameras. Instead, there are M12 lenses similar to the older v100 style which can be purchased from other companies online which may work for you.
