I need a decent super16 zoom for my AATON LTR7. I found on ebay these lenses and wonder if they would be ok?

http://cgi.ebay.de/w...wIt...A:IT&rd=1
and
http://cgi.ebay.de/w...wIt...A:IT&rd=1

the 25-250 is really heavy, but I have a cameflex-aaton mount adapter.
the 17-68 looks like a stillfoto lens to me, and I don't know if it can be adapted to an aaton or arri baionett mount.

my maximun budget is 2000 euro (not for this lenses, should be something better for that money)
I already have a 9,5-75mm angenieux and a 12-240 angenieux but both don't really cover super16.
I also have a sigma 8mm in aaton mount and a nikon-aaton adapter and stillfoto lenses (till now I have unsed only the 8mm and nikon lenses)

thanks
daniel

I forgot, I'm also considering this canon lens

I have read somewhere that they are not so bad

Hi,

Forget that 25-250 on Ebay. It's way to expensive for what it is. Not very sharp for 35mm until stopped well down, quite useless IMO for S16. I dismantled one to use the glass as a prop!

The Canon lens is for a video camera. Speak to Les Bosher and see what he says, he is totally honest.

A good zoom lens for S16 will cost a great deal of money, the main reason I have only bought 35mm equipment!

I have to say to all these recent posts about sticking cheap old lenses on Super-16 cameras is that you get what you pay for. There is no free lunch here kids. If you want a good image then you need good glass. A camera is a box that holds film. The lenses are everything. That's where you should spend your money. My glass is easily worth more than my camera, and that's the way it should be.

of course the lens is the most important thing on a camera, but then I also must consider what I'm going to do with my camera. Right now on film I can do only no or low budget films and I simply can not aford a top lens. I do this movies mainly because I love working on film, but where I live you will never get the money to shoot on film, the day this will happen, I will rent a nice set of prime lenses..

Hi,

You may find some old primes available that cover S16 and are of an acceptable quality. For a S16 zoom from EBay the lowest price you will pay is $4000+. What you must remember when you come to sell the lens you will get most of your money back.
