The S7/i have a common fixed front diameter of 110mm, with a focus drive gear of 140T x 0.8 metric module and an iris drive gear of 134T x 0.8. The lenses incorporate a nine-leaf linear iris assembly. The average weight of an S7/i lens is approximately 3.5kg.Mounts are Cooke Hardened PL with /i Technology contacts.
