Hi,
I am considering to buy this lens, but I fear, that it is really big and heavy. Does anyone know more abouth it?
Also I would have to use it with the arri B-mount to AAton adapter on a AAton ltr7. Might be that at this point Primes are the handyer choise? (actually I use only Nikon lenses because of budget reasons).

Yes, it is big and heavy. But why be afraid?

It's basically the classic 20-100mm T3.1 Cooke Varotal with the rear section swapped for an S16 one.

You can't hand hold it, but it comes with the support bracket and bridge plate.

Wider and faster than you'll get with Nikons.

Well the info on the page basically states it: it's a 35mm 20-100mm zoom converted for Super 16. Considering that that zoom is still very popular, even today, it looks like avery good choice. And you'll even have the option of converting it back to 35mm.

Hm,
if I had the chance to do more fiction, the size would not bother me so much, although I love to do hand held camera, but I will probably do mainly landscape mountain documentary with it, so size matters and with this short zoomrange I will still need primes...
I still have 23 hours to think, I think I will need this time
