Does anyone know whether or not the Kinoptik 9mm F/1.5 Apochromat 'C' mount lens will cover Super 16? Or, are there some that will and some that won't?

Does anybody have any experience with this lens? If so, can you tell me something about its quality and your experiences with it?

Thanks in advance.

It does cover; it's the lens that comes with the Ikonoscope A-Cam. It is an "acceptable" lens.

Thanks Mitch!

I was wondering because I didn't know if there were older versions of this lens that don't cover. Do you happen to know?

How would you compare it to a Switar RX 10mm in terms of sharpness, contrast, etc.?

There is only one generation of this lens. It of lesser optical quality to the Switar.

Sorry but there is, at least, 3 generations of this lens. All cover fully s-16 and they are f1.5. The first/older one is T1.8 or T1.9 (I have seen both) and they have a big spherical aberrations on the corners at s-16. The second ones (which Ikonoskop use) are the 921 series T1.7 and they have other optical design and excellent performance, as good as the old Zeiss 9,5 but with more coverage. The last ones are the same 921 series design with other bigger housing for follow focus, PL mount... (only see in pamphlet).
Sure 10mm Switar is excellent lens, but not plenty s-16 coverage.
All the best

My bad, I was thinking of another lens. It is a pretty decent one, at least that latest generation. And that is the unit that ships with the A-Cam.
