While we have completed and tested our prototypes, our next task is to create our step-by-step production and engineering processes to produce lenses for consumers. These are highly technical and delicate engineering processes, with each lens made by hand. Giving a shipping date in spring 2017 will ensure that we have the time to set up these processes, manufacture, test and deliver each Primoplan lens.
The shipping date for each of the rewards is listed next to each reward. Once the campaign has been funded, we will be in contact to confirm your contact details and to confirm more specific dates. We will be sharing updates to our community and to all backers as the campaign develops.
The Primoplan 1.9/58 will be available with mounts for Canon EOS, Fuji X, Nikon F, M42, Micro-Four-Thirds, Leica M (rangefinder not supported - focussing via live view function), Leica L or Sony E. And new: Pentax K
We do not recommend to exchange the mount. Anyway - for those of you who work with different camera models, we recommend to choose M42 or a Nikon mount. These two mounts can be fitted to nearly any camera model, using adapters. Adapters are available online and in local stores.
If you need help to check whether there adapters available for your camera model, please leave us a note - we are pleased to help you out.
After the campaign is funded we will be in contact with you by email to confirm which mount you want for your Primoplan lens. You will be able to choose from: Canon EOS, Fuji X, Nikon F, M42, Micro-Four-Thirds, Leica M, Leica L or Sony E. And new: Pentax K
Shipping will cost $10 within the European Union, the United States, Norway, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. Shipping to other areas will cost $50. Shipping will be added on when you make you pledge and give your location.
This depends on where you are based - for most U.S. deliveries there will be no additional fee (apart from $10 shipping cost). We have a shipping hub in Nevada and offices in Georgia, so if you live within those states you will need to add local sales tax applies. Supporters from the European Union, will need to add VAT, so please add an extra of 19% (VAT Germany) to your pledge for deliveries within the European Union.
