    Hi.
    Please can anyone advise which TAAB focusing tab fits the 35mm Loxia best?

    The lens measures around 200mm in circumference, which sits right on the border between the 'standard' and 'hefty' sizes of TAAB: TAAB Focus Tabs - Red Dot Cameras

    You can always ask them (Red Dot Cameras) for a more definitive answer.

    Yup, I did, and they don't know.

    OMG!

    But looking at their web page, the "Hefty" one is for circumferences of 200-235mm. If this was put on the Loxia 35, the band will certainly overlap, which will make the lens look unattractive (unless the overlap sits directly within the tab).

    I suppose you could try the "Standard" and if does not fit, I'm sure you could return it for a refund. Shipping outside the UK is a bit on the steep side though!

    I have the Loxia 35 too.

    By chance it looks like I have just picked up a work trip to the Liverpool Street area in a couple of weeks and I shall have time to drop in to Red Dot after the meeting. Trying one out is I'm sure the safest approach. I'll post the answer here 'cos others might be interested too.

    I was a bit surprised they didn't know as well. I supposed it's got something to do with why they aren't called Blue Rectangle Cameras...
