im wondering if anybody has an idea of the quality of these lenses. can anybody give me an opinion of what the image quality is like compared to zeiss superspeeds of the various mk's?


also, did they make a 50mm and 75mm multicoated preset switar? i cant seem to be able to find any info on this.

They're great, in the world of c-mount lenses. 50mm came in preset (I have a 50mm preset macro) and I think the 75mm did also.

The Vario-Switars also came in BL, but I don't know how they stack against Zeiss. I believe Zeiss trumps Switar.

ok but my question really asks:if zeiss trumps multicoated switars,wich zeiss? all of them? just the mk2's and up?

i have the 26 and the 10 multicoated, plan on getting the 50 in a bout a week although its not multicoated, and looking for the 75mm..dont think it was multicoated.

i just want to see what people think of them in terms of quality and a reference point
