For the purposes of future testing for a project, I would like to get some opinions on the various characteristics of some Super 16mm primes. Flares, bokeh, sharpness, contrast, color temperature, the works. Lenses in particular I would appreciate information on are...

  • Zeiss Super Speed Mk 1
  • Zeiss Super Speed Mk 2
  • Optar Illumina s16
  • Cinema Products Ultra T

Any other prime sets that have both 16mm & 25mm focal lengths. I'm really only interested in prime lens sets, no single primes like the Angenieux 5.9mm or any zoom lenses.

What are some of the characteristics of the Elite Mark IVs? They are the easiest to get a hold of in the states.
