Yes I have the 35mm 2.4 and I agree, it's probably the best Lens I have. I'm now looking for an 85mm, maybe a Biometar 80mm? Can't decide whether to get a Samyang/Rokinon CINE 85/1.4 or get the Biometar, I think the  newer 85's are much better but cost alot more. I got a Yashica ML 35 -70mm 3.5f, paid $80 with a 35mm Yashica Film Camera, but the Lens is all Plastic!! I was ripped off I think! It works ok, seems to be very sharp but the focus throw is coarse compared to metal lens. Here's a 35mm 2.4f Flektagon photo I took. '>

Ok scored a Biometar but not sure what the mount is? Can anyone tell me? the link is here, sorry but Ebay won't allow me to save the images for some reason? http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Carl-Zeiss-Jena-Lens-DDR-MG-Biometar-2-8-80-NO-10078440-/161310099092?ViewItem=&item=161310099092&nma=true&si=sK88ctmpZvtKkBPpaQc0SFG8%252BLg%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557

 

 

Ok, don't worry, another friend told me it is pentacon 6.

i've been looking at some pentax cosmicar 25mm lens and i've noticed that they dont look the same even though its the same product, like the numbers are different, some are longer than some and they are made by different companies.. I've noticed the same thing with fujinon lens also.. I don't want to end up buying another replica/knock off again

They make different lenses for different size cctv sensors , you want the 1" sensor models not the ones made for smaller 2/3 " and 1/3 " sensors as they vignette too much. - They are not knock off lenses they are different models that is why they have different model numbers.

 

there is an older  pentax cosmicar 25mm f1.9 with zebra markings

and the newer pentax cosmicar 25mm f1.4 - smaller a better lens

there are 3 versions of this - original made in Japan , then a made in china version and the latest is made in Vietnam

optically they are all the same - I have all 3 there is no differeance

 

all Fujinon lenses I own are made in Japan - I dont have any not made in Japan

 

do not confuse Fujian brand with Fujinon

Fujian is a Chinese CCTV lens maker - their lenses are no way as good as Fujinon of Japan.

Nikon AF-S 28-70mm f2.8 IF ED is one of the best lenses I have , it is the 'Bourne' Lens - used on Bourne Ultimatum , Captain Phillips and James Bond Casino Royale .

On a micro 4/3 camera with a speed booster/ lens turbo it is superb! it becomes approx a 20-50 f2  BOKEH MONSTER !

with a super 35mm field of view from the Speedbooster.

very very filmic - it doesnt get much better than this!!

Just curious if anyone has tried the Fotodiox Light Cannon?     Was originally sold as a speed booster/focal reducer but it seems not the best image quality so now is sold as soft focus.    At around $50 might be worth trying.

 

Also, anyone used an m43 focal reducer/speed booster on an E mount camera?    If it works ok with a cheap m43 to NEX adapter it would save the cost of two of them.

      I'm looking to swap my Zeiss ZF.2 lenses for the equivalent Canon mountable Zeiss ZE lenses.
      Each of my lenses comes with 16:9 adaptors (which adapt the lenses to EF bodies, with de-clicked aperture and AF confirmation). 
      I have the following ZF.2 lenses: 21mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.0, 50mm f/2.0 (Makro Planar), 100mm f/1.4 (Makro Planar).

      I'm really considering making a big upgrade to the URSA, but I've already invested in a fleet of Canon FDs. I've been doing some research on FD to PL mounts without a lot of luck. I know ARRI make an FD adapter to the ARRI mount (PL??) but besides that seems there's zilch out there. Some talk about machining the lenses to fit the new flange but I was hoping someone here knows of something...
