Hi, I am Clemens Hönig, marketing manager at cmotion. Even though I am not a focus puller myself, my strength is to adapt quickly, spotting problems and come up with solutions. I also like to connect people, as I think everybody can learn from anybody. If you just starting at your carrier, make your own path and if you are already experienced, become a mentor...

Hey Max,

With the upcoming software release, it will be possible to change the iris value on the fly, so you don`t need to map the iris anymore. We were also thinking of the option of changing the iris by the slider, even if no motor attached, but it didn`t make it into the upcoming release yet. But it is definitely on the list!

Like Clemens said, the "Set Iris" function is going to be available for all lenses in SW4.0 - it works nicely and its easy to get to via the Lens menu. Personally, I don't think I'd ever set it on a User Button - we're going to run out of room :D This feature is going to become more and more important in the future so I'm glad they've addressed making it easy to change. 

Interesting idea with having the slider control the "digital" iris value... Curious how that would be implemented from the UI side of things because I could see situations where it would be nice to have, and situations where it might really mess a shot up if you're using focus assist via cvision or a rangefinder so that would just be something to think about.
