I'm wondering if a good zoom lens for the 35mm format (and RED/EPIC) exists that has a relatively small front element, accepting 4-1/2 round filters or thereabout...
I know that the old Angenieux 25-250 T3.9 can take 4-1/2 filters, but the optical quality is not that great. The rest of the good zooms (Cooke 18-100, 20-100 etc etc) all need large filters, 138mm and so on.
Again, I am looking for a zoom that has a 5X range or more, and needs smaller round filters (ideally 4.5" round).
Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
