It looks like that Voigt 40mm and the F3 is a winning combo. What strength ProMist did you use? It looks gorgeous!

It's a promist 1/4. A little strong for me usually but has an incredible look if you get the sun the frame.

Mark loves his Takumars but just got some CZ lenses, so I'm looking forward to seeing how they compare.

I think the Takumars might not be too far away from the CZs TBH.

@Zach Goodwin2 Hallo Zach, you might like the Tokina 25-50mm F4 zoom. One of the fun finds by Andy Lee, who started this thread long time ago. You could get it in Pentax or Nikon mount and adapt it to your EF mount camera. You can get them for less than 15 dollars or even less than ten! Great 2x range and quality. Nice haptic quality and great size. Got mine for less than 15 bucks with shipping included!

Anyone know of a good adhesive for repairing a lens? The front filter thread/hood part of my Canon TV-16 25mm is slightly loose (and can be easily unscrewed). This wouldn't really bother me if I were using the lens as is, but I want to use it as a taking lens for Anamorphic, and a slight focus turn skews it out of alignment. Anyone have any experience repairing lenses who can recommend an adhesive that's safe to use with a lens?

BMMCC (ProRes LT), Sankor 16c, VidAtlantic Clamp, Cosmicar 25mm f/1.9 c-mount lens, Tiffen +1, +2, +4 diopters, Tiffen +1/2 Split Diopter, Firecrest IRND

I really love this camera/lens combination, and I'm happy to be shooting anamorphic again after selling my previous lenses 6 years ago. The BMMCC's Super 16 sensor goes well with anamorphic because you can still get a shallow enough DOF, but deep enough wide open to be usable/practical. You get sharp, low light anamorphic that's actually in focus (this whole video was shot wide open at f/1.9. I can get similarly sharp/usable results at f/1.4 with my Canon TV-16 25mm, which is why I need to fix it).

I'm getting nikkor lenses from now on, either that or Olympus lenses. Maybe I would get m42 mount lenses. I understand the quality of Edmika mount FD lenses look great, but at the moment the lens mount chipped apart from my camera and it fell on the floor. The rear of the lens is made from undurable plastic. Another complaint I have is that it takes too long to get it perfectly just right to mount the Edmika mount requiring a screwdriver with the right amount of precision and timing on a lens. The guy who sells the mounts takes too long to ship the lens mounts as well. The Edmika mounts are only good if you are using them for a short amount of time as over time they wear out. I do not recommend Edmika any more.
