HI

I have a shoot coming up this weekend, and will be using the sony F-950. However the only lenses available to us are a set of Canon HD Primes (First Generation not the HD-EC range). Does anybody have any expirence in using these lenses and will they be up to the job!? Many Thanks

I noticed so many new people joining the forum and somehow missing that rule on the registration page, even though it's at the top of the list of instructions -- I wonder if it's not prominent enough or something. It probably doesn't help that I think it's one field that they have to fill-in and put two names in with a space, rather than two fields. At least with a two-field entry, you can perhaps set the program to reject the submission until they enter a name in both fields.

They are very nice lenses, very clean and sharp with good contrast and very litttle chromatic abberation. The 5mm is fairly huge and requires a 120mm to 130 ring clamp to fit ontop a 130mm back mattebox, and then you'll need fairly large filters to cover it, I think 5x5. The rest of the set are 80mm fronts. They all have a slight magenta shift when wide open but this disappears at a 2.8 or above. This does not occur on the new EJs series.
