Has anybody ever used these lenses? They seem fairly good value for money and are good equivalents to the much sought after mk2/mk3 superspeeds, but are they any good? build quality?

Very nice actually. Early units had build quality issues but I believe this has been corrected.

You can also get the Elites from BFC in Brussels and JDC in the UK (under the name Xtal Express). JDC had the lenses rehoused and changed some of the focal lenghts ever so slightly (the 14mm became a 14.5mm for instance)

Hey Max,

Whats that BFC stand for. Stateside it was the Blimped Fox Camera (65mm if I recall) sometimes also refered to as the Big F**king Camera. lol

Yes, BFC was Mitchell's 65mm offering -- BNC "Blimped News Camera" was the 35mm equivalent.

I think it stands for Brussels Film Centre. They also have a set of anamorphic Elites by the way.
