Which lenses do and don’t work, and why?

Most popular PL lenses fit, and every regular EF lens will fit.
A list of known compatible lenses is being produced.
Primarily it is only lenses which have a very deep rear element projection which cause trouble.

Lenses with rear projection up to ~25mm behind the flange are safe.
Rear projections of ~25mm to ~27.5mm fit, but are in the ‘No Swap’ zone.
‘No Swap’ means the Revolva cartridge must not be swapped without removing the lens.

Note that lenses of this type tend often to be less than ideal on digital systems due to the acute angle of light striking the sensor.

To check safe lens fitment a simple tool is provided.
The tool is available separately for a nominal charge, refundable against a Revolva purchase.
Free downloadable files are provided for you to print, cut out and check with.
