View Full Version : Anyone have experience with these?

Wondering if any of you out there have had experience with this glass. If so could you give an overview on the performance in general. These, as I understand it, would be suitable for 2K.

I haven't tried them but I've heard that optically, they're pretty good. I believe they're russian built similar to some Optar 35mm lenses I have. If they are the same quality (and from what I hear they come from two different facilities, so they probably aren't) then they are descent optically, but mechanically they may have a tendancy to break down.
When I say "descent" optically, they won't be as good as Zeiss, but of course they won't cost what Zeiss does.
Note that these are 16mm lenses - so they won't be suited for your 4k recording. The 35mm Optars are hard to find.

Thanks Indie Rentals,
Appreciate the feedback. I'm planning max 2K shooting to begin with but will probably opt for 1080P as a start point.
