I just did a feature with them on the Varicam and was very happy. Others have reported a slight magenta shift when wide open but I didn't find this. Very nice lenses that aren't talked about as much as the Zeiss DigiPrimes.

Thanks Mitch, since we are on digitall and it is easier to measure, i would like to know how many lines do the lense loose at full aperture compared to T2.8 for example. Any way were i can find this?

Or do you think because the "lower" resolution of the varicam CCDs, there is not really going to be a difference in definition shooting at T1.5?

Thanks

I just put up our set of primes on our lens projector and could easily resolve 200 lines even wide open. It didn't appear to change as I stopped down. They are very sharp glass.
