Hello, Backers

We have got above 90% response rate on the survey and have did summary on the mounts you need. Everything is good till now. Production line works ok and the capacity guaranteed. We are going to be in mass production phase next week and start to ship from July 21. Please be sure to write the exact shipping address you want before July 20. The address change option is still open now.

      Wel, I was hoping to get it before 10th Aug, so expecting a mail from your side on 21st July as you have mentioned that shipping starts 21st July. Actually, I am going on a trip on 10th Aug, testing & review was on my cards. I have to wait longer I guess.

      Great service providing the extra hood.
      I will use both.
      So looking forward to this lense arrival and will put test video up on youtube and the M4/3 DSLR blogs.

      @Brian Patterson, Yes, the metal one is standard and is definitely there. We will only have it available to retailers after all shipments are sent to our backers and their retail price is $199.

      I assume a ‘premium’ metal one is standard still?

      Funny how some feel they need a second one - so many do not use lens hoods. I do on all my lenses but especially on these compact primes. Don’t mind the threaded version as you can add filter before the hood and should be able to rotate polarizers easily by just gripping the hood.

      As a second tier backer, I’m looking forward to receiving my sample early (hint,hint) and giving it a thorough testing on the street.

      Will these lenses continue to be produced for sale at retailers or is this just a single production cycle project?
