Hello everyone, Great to see that there is a dedicated lens section on this lovely forum now! Ironglass, a Ukraine company, that has been offering cinemodded Russian lenses (such as the Helios 44-2) for a number of years is now offering a completely rehoused version of their lenses. I bought the original cinemods back in 2018 and am now thinking of upgrading. So I am familiar with their optical performance, however I would be interested if anyone here has seen these up close and can speak to their mechanical capacity, i.e. how well the rehouse is done. I've seen a number of announcements around the web from last fall, but no real hands-on reviews. I'd be really grateful for anyone experiences on these!
Is there any loss in quality using a ZF lens on a Canon body via an adapter? Would having a mount professionally switched using a company like Duclos in the U.S or TLS in the UK, be any better? Alex
