p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Replacement for Loxia Pocket Pano Lens grip?


I have a pocket pano lens grip on my Loxia 25mm and would like to find 1-2 more for future Loxia lenses. It looks like they are no longer available from Pocket Pano. Does anyone know of a replacement or does anyone have one that they would sell? They are a great add to the Loxia lenses and really help solve the mounting problems with those lenses.

Even homemade solutions you can suggest would be appreciated.

Thanks
Bill

I can see they are out of stock on their store, have you confirmed with them they are never coming back into stock? Sad if so, for sure. I only own the 21 Loxia but that is indispensable for me. I did buy a spare when I ordered it in case I ever bought another Loxia. Holding out hope of finding a cheap 25 used one day

Yes, out of stock. I just bought a used Loxia 85 to add to my Loxia 50 and was lucky to have a spare Pocket Pano grip. But would like to order a few more for future Loxia purchases or replacements.
I emailed Pocket Pano a few days ago to ask if they will fabricate again, no reply so far.
I suggest you do the same, the more inquiries they get the more push to sell them again.

I was sure I bought an extra and now I can't find it. Story of my life.

If anyone bought extras and doesn't plan to buy any more Loxia lenses, drop me a PM. I would be glad to buy one from you!

Couldn't you cut off strips of this camera replacement leatherette to provide a similar function?

There's also one with evenly spaced rectangular nubs:

I had one that wore out and then I just learned to use the lens without it. Doesn't bother me anymore.

You could just apply a bit of gaffer tape and replace it as needed.

The tape won't leave a residue (at least none that can't be easily removed, even after an extended period) and it will give you a bit more of a grip. I've not bothered to do that with my Loxia 25 (the only Loxia lens that I've used), but I do use the tape for some other purposes on my gear.

Reply I received from PocketPano in response to my question when the Loxia lens grip will be back in stock.


I am very sorry for the late reply. In the last few months there have been some changes in the production process and part of the workshop has moved. Unfortunately, I cannot yet say when production will start again. There may also be a change to our product range. Please excuse me for not being able to make a more concrete statement.

I got the exact same message in my email this morning, too.
Doesn't look good for their product anytime soon

Nope, doesn't look promising - that is what I think as well.

If anyone has found alternative solutions would be great to share them here.

I have two Loxia lenses. I just grab the aperture ring and rotate it until it reaches its stop. No need to grab that much too narrow part of the lens body.
