The S35mm lenses from Luma Tech, made by the LOMO factory in St. Petersburg are called S35mm Illuminas. There is no such name as S35mm Optar Illuminas.
The price for a set of S35mm Illuminas is now $29,995.
Hey guys. I have a question about the Zeiss Compact Primes. With the completely inconsistent f-stops, especially in the wides, why would anyone pay $24,000 for these? If you want cinema grade PL glass, the RED Primes seem much more professional. If it's about the physical size, you could find a set of used Zeiss Super Speeds for just a little more. And if it's about needing a Canon mount, for $24,000 you could get two full sets of Canon primes and have a spare 5D to boot. Am I missing something here?
The choice its easy..
Red Pro Prime Set T1.8 across
(18, 25, 35, 50, 85, 100)
Arri Master Prime set T1.3 across
(18, 25, 35, 50 75, 100 Macro)
Leica Summilux-C Prime Set T1.4 across
(18, 21, 25, 35, 40, 50, 75, 100)
Still not sure on the Zoom side, need to have some serious tests done with the Customized RPZ 17-50's to know more, if not the best bet for 3D will be ...
Angenieux Optimo Zoom T2.8 Set
Angenieux Optimo DP Rouge 16-42mm Zoom Lens 20,500
Angenieux Optimo DP Rouge 30-80mm Zoom Lens 20,500
Canon "L" series for some Photography work and possibly some DocuFilm work in super light set up.
Hey Ketch. Would you mind telling us why you prefer the Leicas over the Master Primes? I'm sure you've mentioned it in another thread, but it might be useful to post it in this thread as well.
Evin Grant. Thanks for all your lens information over the years. This thread seems more current than other stickies. What's the best way to keep the data base up to date?
