Ive read 11 pages of this form and rarely anyone has made the case as to what cine lens is best, I feel like more photo lenses were tossed in this conversation... anyone have suggestions on red pro primes over zeiss cp2? currently debating on making a purchase...
I'm on the look out for a set of close to cinema lenses- I can't really afford real cine lenses.. the cheapest cp2's are too slow, the new CP2 speeds are too expensive, so I have been looking at rehoused zfs.
sure they will breath a little, but this is a reasonably small issue with me.
so i have found these-
has anyone got any information on these? PS technic is a quality brand as far as I know.
and there are these- Look pretty good, but again, I can't really find any real information on them.
and from china (i think) the lens on the left below-
but these are too close a rip off of cp2s- when they really don't need to be- they could have just been bold and made their own design- and it would be a great solution. I find it funny that they think a "CP2" looking mod is somehow more desirable... but even if these are good- i couldn't see my investment in lenses keeping its value like the prime-circle or ps-tecknic.
has anyone here see or used any of these?
The glass in the CP.2 is the same as in the ZF lenses.
If you are on that tight a budget look in the for sale forum, there are ZF lenses with Duclos cine mods for sale. Save some money and but a good used set.
In all seriousness though, I do love my CP.2s and while I don't know much about the Prime Circle lenses, I do recall hearing good things about them.
