OWNER NOTES

*** THESE JUST CAME BACK FROM THEIR YEARLY SERVICE AT DUCLOS. GET EM WHILE THEY'RE HOT***

I adore these lenses. Perfect if your taste is something a softer and creamier than modern lenses. Comes with a follow focus.

Just discovered they cover Dragon sensors without breaking a sweat. The 25mm does vignette just a little bit.

I've shot so many projects with these perfect little things , and I'm constantly reminded of how much I love them.

As per the Duclos Cinemod all three lenses are de-clicked, have 0.8 pitch gears and a standard 80mm front. If you're still using 77mm filters those will still screw right into the front. They've also been modified with a permanent canon mount which is rock solid.

Griffin's lens was in perfect condition, he made himself available for pickup and drop off that worked with my schedule. I'll probably rent from him again!

I met Griffin through a rental on KitSplit. He rented my Teradek Bolt 300 Kit for a longer shoot. During pickup we ended up chatting for a while, had mutual interests, and since then, have worked together on multiple shoots. He's one of those guys that you're happy to have on set because he knows what he's doing, all while being someone you wouldn't mind spending an entire day with. He's also cool enough to hang out with when you're not on set. Griffin is experienced, takes good care of gear, and genuinely cares about taking care of people. Can't recommend him highly enough, whether you're renting to him, from him, or hiring him onto your crew (and I've done all three). Stop reading my review hit this guy up.
