50mm F1.2 lens + adaptor for E700 spotters clearance sale

Post by some bloke » 02 Nov 2018, 15:41

Clearing out some surplus new stock as I'm setting aside NV rig builds in the near future. Bundle price £25 posted RMSD. I know some people dont like to plough through information but I prefer to give as much information as possible - and I have the time to do it. :angel:

The custom machined adaptors are a very simple and robust method to secure both a 50mm F1.2 M12 lens and an E700 camera to a spotter box. The lens screws directly into the E700 neck, and comes with a spring that lightly tensions the thread so it doesn't wobble or migrate from focus.

This vulnerable lens is usually avoided in spotter builds: As you can see its somewhat exposed to knocks during handling and storage which would easily dislodge both it and the camera away from the aim of the torch.

So I made some fixing adaptors with a protective shroud that solidily anchors them both to the box with four M4 fixing screws.

The neck of a 12mm lensed E700 is short enough to allow the lens tensioning spring to be used, but a 16mm lens neck is longer so may need to be cropped a little. See the difference here, but ignore the C mount adaptor in the photo:

This is all you need to robustly fix both a 50mm lens and E700 camera to a spotter box. The camera is fully protected from knocks inside the box so is very capably glued to the inside of the adaptor with silcone bathroom sealant that sticks it like shit to a blanket, having been guided into a central and correct focal distance by its neck - but can be removed with a good twist if required. Also comes with 4x M4 fixing screws. :angel:

Please read this sales post about the C mount lens adaptors I also make as they are fitted in the same way - following the same instructions.

I'm winding down my night vision build activities and will sell these adaptors and lens for a clearance price of £25 posted RMSD. The lens alone costs more than that at UK prices. I have four lenses left but a few more adaptors. :)

All sorted thanks Bob. Please expect to sign for the package before 1PM on Tuesday.

I have three lenses left - but the last two have lens covers that went AWOL.
