Wondering if anyone figured out a way to make the aperture ring stand out more like a video ring or something. Itís to close to body and needs to be larger. Any links or ideas would be helpful

I'm not sure if there is an accessory for the aperture ring. I have only seen follow focus add-ons for the lens' focus barrel.

Here is one:

Perhaps it would fit the aperture ring as well?

Zeiss makes them too:

This is how the Cool-Lux Lux Gear Kit looks on the 35/2 Loxia. I think it's too wide for the aperture ring...

I have both the Cool Lux and the Zeiss video rings and neither fit on the aperture ring unfortunately. The Cool lux works ok for follow focus and the Zeiss is great for that, but if anyone finds a solution for the aperture ring I would love to see it.

Thanks Steve. Maybe some nice zip tie might be the answer. The connection can act as the TAB

Actually Lenstab should work perfectly on the Loxia 21/2.8's aperture ring since the band is 0.25".
