I guess you would need a shoulder rig to truly run n gun, but if you were doing quick setups for interviews on sticks... and needed to re-frame after every question or the subject started crying and the producer wanted you to push in quickly... then you could do that with this setup and not worry about losing focus. Yes, the lens is big, but this is about the smallest 2/3" lens you can get! I saw what AbelCine did... their adapter doubles the image size... and I am not sure why they decided that was necessary... 4/3 adapter to pl mount to AbelCine B4 optical adapter... I'm assuming they have a lens in their adapter. All you need to make the lens work is have a 4/3 to B4 adapter with a 2/3" lens that has a built-in doubler... which doubles the image to the correct size for the 4/3 mos chip in the camera! I'm still looking forward to trying this setup with the AF100.
