Hello,

I've just bought a used Arri 35 2B. It came with an old Angenieux 35-140mm zoom lens. Has anybody already used such a zoom ? Is it still usable nowadays ?? I'm not so sure... <_<
I've tried to do a search with google and I found a guy who used one with a modified Olympus still photography camera. He seemed to be happy with it, but I'd be very surprised if it ould give good pictures...

Any feedback appreciated !!

thanks

Gregory

Yes, it will still give good pictures. The images will typically be softer than modern lenses, so it depends on what you're using it for.

Hello,

thanks for your mind. I mainly want to use that lens for shooting landscapes and skies. Do you think it could be better than the Angenieux 25-250 or will it give about the same results than it ? I could read that the 25-250 is not really loved over there, and I'm brand new to all these old lenses.

Thanks again

Gregory
