SX Mini USB Filter Wheel + OAG

Hi,

Anyone using / thinking of getting this filter wheel?
it seems pretty good with options for 5x36mm unmounted filters and best bit is that the OAG is built in, so risk of flex due to the OAG is reduced. and it weighs just 500g.

my concern is with how much weight it can carry. obviously not heavy cameras, but would it support 0.8kg (stf8300m)

I initially thought of getting the 7 position wheel but the backfocus adds up to 59.5 with the SX OAG (29+13+17.5CCD).

Reports on the SX forum appear favourable but there aren't many user reviews out there.

Cheers
Alistair
