Tito Ferradans Posted April 16, 2013 Share Posted April 16, 2013 I found an interesting set of Hawk lenses - 35mm, 50mm, 75mm, 100mm and 135mm - marked as T/2.2 (but actually darker than that). They have a 2x stretch, PL mount, and DEFINITELY need servicing. The 35mm is a huge beast, the 50mm has the alignment loose, so if you twist it, things skew in the wrong direction, etc. They're at a rental house and the owner told me they haven't been out for at least two years. They're all marked as "B-Series", which Google told me are "cheaper versions that Hawk made for the Indian cinema market", which we come to understand as "bollywood anamorphics". source: last post on this page - http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthread.php?25095/page4 I'm considering an offer to buy the whole set, as it doesn't have any fungus, haze or scratches, but I'm a bit worried about how much it's worth. Also, if I'm gonna be able to use them combined with a 5D3 (I'm seriously considering removing the mirrorbox). Anyone got comments about these lenses? Has anyone seen something like it? Are the any better/worse than OCT-19 LOMO roundfronts? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
