16mm Filmo 70D lens combinations

Post by Phil_F_NM » Thu May 24, 2018 8:26 pm

Is there a guideline for a minimum and maximum focal length one should mount on a camera with a turret? I'm thinking I don't want my long focal length lens in the field of view of my wide.
I know a lot of variation exists with regard to physical dimensions and lens design comes into play as well. Since I have no ability to check through the lens, I'm hoping there is some old guideline to follow while still maximizing the range of focal lengths on my cameras.

Thanks all.

Found it.
There is a bit of a chart for turret lens combinations in the B&H 70DL manual. Funny that I already had the answer in my computer and on my phone but hadn't paid attention to it until now.
