Rolling Out Another Batch

The 11-16mm has been doing extremely well and received a lot of good reviews especially with the release of the RED Epic camera and it's ability to cover the entire frame. There was a small slump where the lenses were constantly in stock and just sitting on the shelf. But now we can't build them fast enough. [caption id="attachment_813" align="aligncenter" width="640" caption="Bridge shot with RED Epic and Duclos 11-16mm by Mike Seymour"][/caption] A little background on the lens and our conversion can be found here: Duclos Lenses PL Mount 11-16mm. We build our conversion lenses in batches of 25-50 at a time. The base lens is a bit difficult to find since it's such a great photo lens, making it hard to find in stores and online.  Once we have all of the stock lenses ready to go we begin tearing down the plastic housings and unwanted parts. The lens is essentially stripped down to the core mechanics and glass. Our local machine shops crank out all new aluminum and stainless steel parts for the housing and components of the new lens. All of the material, machining, assembly, and testing is done right in the San Fernando Valley. When we say Made in the USA, we mean it. Kinda... (The original Tokina lens is still made in Japan).

We learned from our mistakes and are producing a much larger quantity of parts for the conversion. So if you're in line for a Duclos Lenses 11-16mm, know that we are building them as fast as we can and yours is on the way.
