Has anyone used a 35mm zoom lens on the Varicam with the pro35 adapter?
Results?

It works fine, but it is a beast. Expect to take some time at the rental house while they figure out the right riser blocks and support to get it all to fit. We've stuck our huge Optimo zoom on it a few times, and that lens comes with it's own carry handle and rolling case!

Personally I feel hat it defeats much of the point of using the adapter in the first place, but it can be done and we do so for clients on a regular basis.

I found that if I went to t2.8 with any lens I would get grain from the ground glass. What are you shooting?

I'm shooting b-roll of a single person in the AA center (large empty sporting arena) Long lens and also wide enough to see the stands from across the ice.

I'm also looking at a 200mm or 400mm lens if the zoom won't give me what I need.

We trade off resolution with the pro 35 for 35mm dof.
But with longer lenses is it worth reverting to a HD zoom and matching the look in post?

Anyone tried matching pro35 with long lens narrow DoF unadulterated HD?

Mike! Long time no speak, how are you?

My only experience with matching pro35 s is on regular lenses and using an 1/8th of promist on my non pro35 shots. Seems to get me close although I am interested in other ideas from this thread.
