Is the Angenieux 9.5 - 57 better overall than the 10-150? As regards breathing? Is the 17.5-70 any good and how does it compare to the previous two? What is the .7 Retrofocus adaptor for the 17.5-70?

Thanks,

Paul

---They're close. I prefer the 9.5 because it's smaller and focuses closer. 150mm is too long for hand holding. All zooms of that vintage will breath when focusing. Zooms focus by changing the focal length.

The 17.5-70/16-64mm is ang's first 16mm zoom from the early-mid50s. A break through lens at the time.
I think Cinema Products must have gotten a good close out price on a load of them.

The retro zoom is an afocal adaptor which converts it to 12.5-50mm. It has a fousing scale which cvers the one on the lens. A clever design feature.
I suppose it's okay for B/W.

the 9.5-57 *HEC* model would typically be better.

The quality of 10-150's varies widely. I've used one that matched a Zeiss 10-100 T2 (forget if it was "Mk I" or "Mk 11" Zeiss. Others were "cokebottles"

Ken @ Whitehouse AV is very knowledgeable on these lenses.
