    I think I agree.

    For the money I like Nikkors, but they're a bit inconsistent. The 24mm f2, for instance, is not great. The 18mm f3.5 is boring. The 28mm f1.4, meanwhile, is anomalously good...

    Heh, I guess I will find out how my luck is soon. The 28mm and 35mm are very sharp, even wide open.

    This is based on a video on Vimeo to be honest with you. I'm still awaiting mine in the mail.

    It ALMOST covers. Slight vignetting in the corners.

    I considered buying a set of S2/S3 recently, but it's this same reasoning that made me hesitate. I'm of two minds about it:

    Cooke S2/S3 has pretty good coverage. 3.2K on Alexa. S35 I think will remain a viable format, maybe more so with the 4K+ Alexa next year.

    I do think the double speed etc. will go up in value even...

    Alex, I think that might be the older 22mm f2.8? Not sure.

    Dan, I have found even Ultra Primes get a bit wonky in the corners at 3.2k, yeah. Honestly the level of vignetting with the 22mm at 3.2K...

    Thanks, I bought one with the OCT19 mount. Most of mine are OCT18 mount but I hear they are the same optically and I have PL adapters for both.

    Sorry if my last reply was rude. Frustrating day.

    I just bought one. I have a set of other Lomos, which do cover, but they are longer focal lengths.

    I looked at some tests on Vimeo and it looks...

    That doesn't answer my question.

    Are they meant to cover 4 perf super35 or just 3 perf?

    If 4 perf, that's a 31mm image circle.

    With 3.2k Arri Open gate you have a 33.5mm image circle. Some...

    Lomo Lens Coverage on 3.2k Alexa

    Hi, do these lenses cover 3.2k on Alexa?

    OKS3-22-1

    OKS5-18-1

    Thanks.

    Good metaphor. Well put, as usual.

    I agree with all of that, except I don't think digital looks like S16. Although a 1080p Alexa crop gets very close and Red cropped footage gets close, too, maybe I'm wrong.

    And I find the Arri...

    I take it you're not a big Alexa fan?

    What about S16 film?

    I agree in theory. I remember trying out the Sigma DP2. 15 megapixels feels like a lot more when it's oversampled that much. Shot...

    I think this is the cinematography text at USC and most other major film schools:

    Excellent book regardless.

    For me, 35mm for sure.

    Vintage Cooke focal lengths if I remember right are 18, 25, 32, 40, 50, 75. Arri Mk 2 is 16, 24, 32, 40, 50, 85. Schneider 18, 28, 35, 40, 50, 75. (Too big a gap with...

    Very interesting... I have never tried the Lomo super speeds. Seems they are now worth a lot. Never used Kinoptiks except the Tegea, which is soft but with no visible distortion and has a similar...

    Of course the other unaddressed factor is mechanics. Recently started working with some Mk1 standard speeds, Schneider Cine-Xenon, and Lomos....

    Oh god I'm getting old. I have not worked with Venice, Tokina, or Angenieux EZ but two of those three sound like they probably look fantastic even if they are not my style. I wouldn't know.
