Well, by "modern" I don't really mean the latest Master Primes, but say some Zeiss standard (the 2.1 sets) or something similar.

Is there really such a big optical performance difference to account for the big price difference between the older lenses that would be mounted on a 2c and the PL mount ones? I mean would it show so badly on screen?

I'm asking this because I've just seen some footage shot with a combined schneider/cooke set of lenses on a 2c that really looked surprisingly good, and that kinda left me wondering.

Can anyone share a similar experience? Or comment about how good/bad are the older lenses?

I have a short coming up and I'm seriously thinking of renting a 2c package and save some money for better (is it?) use.


Thanks a lot guys, hope to get some feedbacks on this one!

Cheers

As I recall, this is a pretty well worn question, here. You might find some useful info faster by running some searches for previous threads.

You do realize that the 2C is an MOS camera, correct?

Oh ok Paul, thanks for pointing that out, and sorry to have brought this up then. I did browse a bit through the 35mm forum and didn't find anything relevant, but I'll dig deeper then :)

And yes Jon, I know it's an MOS camera. Thanks for the warning, mate.

Cheers
