Samyang 7.5 takes panasonic shading frame

In response to a query on a related 4/3 forum, I have experimented with the VXQ1911 'shading frame' on the Sammy fisheye. It fits, and the fit is very good, all it needs is securing with glue or double sided sticky tape and you have a rear mount filter holder - just need to source the gel filters. Comar optics have a range so check them out if interested.

Thanks for the "heads up" on this Steve. I'd really like to fit an ND to my Sammy, so this is a great solution. Dang - I'm regretting selling my filter holder now!

£14.22 from Panasonic UK, I believe I posted the contact number earlier. If you mention it is the VXQ1911 'Shading Frame' for the Panny 8mm fisheye, it helps. If you mention in context with the P7-14 it may confuse the individual/system. Order Monday, it should be with you Wednesday, Thursday at the latest.
