Additional grip for better handling with ZEISS Loxia lenses
As we are not only manufacturer of nodal point adapters, but also enthusiastic amateur photographers, we are passionately using the excellent ZEISS Loxia lenses for the Sony E-mount cameras (currently with the Sony A7III).
In particular, the ZEISS Loxia 2.8/21 is suitable for high-resolution panoramic photography, but also the other lenses in this series (2.4/25, 2/35, 2/50, 2.4/85) are a great treat both visually and haptically.
Unfortunately, all lenses of the Loxia series have a decisive disadvantage: the lens change is very cumbersome, because the fixed area to touch is very narrow and smooth. As a result, you turn the focus or aperture ring to the stop and abuse this, in order to grip the lens firmly. This is cumbersome, annoying with frequent lens changes and may have a negative impact on the mechanical stability of the end stops of focus and aperture ring.
Therefore, we have developed a solution that adapts optically and haptically perfectly to the lens: the pocketPANO LENS-GRIP for Loxia lenses!
The pocketPANO LENS-GRIP for Loxia lenses is an additional grip that is easily glued to the smooth fixed ring of the lens. Due to the precisely milled knurled structure, the lens is very grippy and changing the lens is child's play. At the same time, all functions of the lens are retained: all markings are visible and aperture and focus rings can be optimally operated without the additional handle getting in the way.
The LENS-GRIP is machined from high quality engineering plastic (POM) and only 0.6mm thin. The knurl structure is based on the focus and aperture ring, whereby the additional handle fuses visually with the lens and is not perceived as a foreign object.
The small thickness of 0.6mm (or 0.2mm in the grooves) allows the exact adaptation of the LENS-GRIP to
the rounding of the lens barrel. To ensure that the additional handle sticks permanently, the back is equipped with a special and extremely strong adhesive transfer
tape (a 0.05mm thin double-sided adhesive tape) from the adhesive specialist 3M.
Applying the LENS-GRIP succeeds effortlessly, because you can align the LENS-GRIP at the edges of the 5mm wide fixed ring of the lens.
