    What do you wish you'd settled on?

    Given my investment history, vintage lenses are about to bottom out. :(

    I do suspect that the move to larger formats will have some impact on things. Double...

    What do you recommend checking for? Just haze/fungus/etc. or also do you test the lenses on your camera/on a collimator?

    Where do you find so many lenses? The 24mm is over $2000 on eBay now. If...

    Yeah, mine seems to be improving. I've gone from a UV bug zapper to a pretty crazy light that also seems to emit ozone. Still a little tint.

    It's not completely better, but you can see a before...

    I have been trying to cure the 55mm's yellow tint for a few days and have had some luck. Not scientific at all (auto white balance and auto exposure muddy the result), but I took photos with my...

    Thanks. You've tried both, I haven't. I appreciate the feedback and will hang onto the EVA (I love it) and save up for (or rent) an S1H!

    Thank you! EVA rolling shutter I believe is around 16 and S1H is much more in FF but possibly less in S35, 13ms? They both have 60p in S35.

    Regardless not that important. I will wait for a price...

    Thanks, loving what I'm hearing about this. Looks like it might be a really fun camera with a great image. I love the Varicam and EVA1 color already–only thing I wish it had is internal NDs.

    Details? How is highlight dynamic range? Is IBIS smooth enough looking for use in video?

    Thanks, I got it working. Though still need to figure out how to get the aperture to work when it's stuck to the adapter without pulling on the aperture tab.

    But worried about the haze. (See...

    Just got my 24mm f1.4 FD L today. Styling doesn't match the 55mm aspherical, but it's supposed to share an optical design with its older (far more expensive, outside my budget) 24mm S.S.C. brother.

    I lack the experience to add more, but that makes sense to me re: Ultra Primes.

    How do you feel about Ultra Primes? I think the look is at least coherently modern, but I can't say I love it. I want to blame aspherical elements, but I think only the 8R has one among all Ultra...

    I think S.S.C. is marketing speak for multicoating and was implemented silently in some models like early T* coating. So those might all be S.S.C.

    Thanks for the thoughtful reply. I always liked using heavy Classic Soft-style filtration, so I suppose personally I like a softer look.

    Can you determine the age of the lens from the serial number?

    Are we simply in some sort of nostalgia cycle and will early EF-mount glass be the next hot commodity?

    Welp just ordered a non-AL (S.S.C.) 55mm f1.2 aspherical. Wikipedia says it's the same design with newer coatings. Might even use it to shoot film... If it's not the same design lmk though.
