Well, I couldn't stand it any longer. I just had to get that Volna-3 so I bought one off Ebay. Can't wait to get it in. With the colors the Volna produces, I might never need to buy Magic Bullet (color grading software for video) as it looks great as is. Will post video when I get it in!

Thanks! Yeah I found one for $90 shipped on Ebay so I figured it was worth the risk to at least try it out and see how it works out. The thing that decided it was my wife who is usually not impressed by this or that lens I show her but the Volna-3 got a definite "wow" out of her. She's also my shooting partner at weddings so this lens is really for her. I just hope she lets me borrow it from time to time Smile I'll post some video shot with the lens when I get it in Smile

It's a sexy lens.

Tell us how she'll react when she'll try it. Wink

She already loves it. Usually she gives me a hard time with my LBA but with this one, it's like "Buy It. Now." Does anyone know how long it takes for a lens to make it from Estonia? Surprised
