As I'm sure you know, Jarin, they flare like crazy. Watching "Escape", there's a handful of shots where you wonder where the flare is coming from, until the camera pans 30 degrees and you see a streetlight a couple hundred yards down the road, fun...

Good luck with whatever project you've got going, let me know what you find out.

Technovision in France and Italy also have them, as well adapted Zeiss Standards. Since Panavision bought Technovision there should be a possibility to get to themin the US.
Also Panavision have themselves adapted Superspeeds. They were used on 'The Prestige' for instance and these lenses looked quite crisp in the theatre I found.

We viewed the footage from class at Technicolor and the lenses looked amazing, it probably helped that T2.8 was our shooting stop. If you can get ahold of that set of lenses, Jarin, you'll be in good shape.

Beebe used some E-Series that opened up a tad wider than the usual T2.
Panavision have a certain number of lenses that's aren't listed in the catalogue, so it's a good idea to ask if you have anything special in mind.

Do you recall what speed the longer focal lenghts were? And did they go beyond 100mm?
Unfortunately I don't remember what lens were in the set we had, or the apertures of them. I was gaffing for that class, so my attention was focused on trying to take in as much of Wally's lighting method as possible. It was a great experience to meet him and have him walk us through how he works, too bad that I didn't get a closer look at the lenses though.

Actually, he and a partner started their own lens making firm with Dalsa as their first client. They are not Dalsa employees.
Dan Sazaki works for Dalsa now, making their 1.22 squeeze anamorphic lenses.
