It's the only baby anamorphic with internal focus as far as I know. The rear threads, have a bit of wear on them but still function perfectly. Previous owner was using bore screws into the threads, so some of the paint on them is worn off, but they still thread clamps perfectly. I affixed the ProtoDNA front clamp via bore screws but I think I lined them up perfectly so that the screws are boring into the small indentations from the original front ring (which is also included with it's original cap).
Even still, I put precisely placed tiny squares of tape between the screws and lens body to protect it as much as possible. The ProtoDNA is probably in the best shape it's ever been. Even still there are some tiny cleaning marks on the glass that I couldn't even really photograph. The service at Duclos cost pretty much what a new unit does... So be confident it's prime.All clamps and rings detailed below are in good to. CLAMPS/RIG: Included are Rapido clamp which threads onto the rear and provides 46mm male threads.
Also RAFcam rear clamp which threads onto the rear and provides 52mm male threads. Also included is front clamp providing 52mm female threads (for use with ProtoDNA) AND front clamp providing male 55mm threads (by RAF) incase you want to set this up with a FVD-8. Also includes original front ring and original front cap AND original screw on rear cap. Right now I have it setup with the ProtoDNA.
