Hey all,

I've heard that there are several lenses that don't fully cover Super 35...mainly older zeiss primes and some zooms. Could any of you guys clear this up for me as to what lenses will and won't cover Super 35? Thanks.

Hi Joe,

Most older primes will cover S35 1:1.85 extraction. With older zooms you need to take more care, if it's made by Cooke it should be OK, however as always a test is a good idea.

Stephen,

In your experience, do Zeiss Standard Speed Primes T2.1 cover Super 35 pretty well? And how well would those cover a 3 perf frame?

Hi Joe,

They should be fine on a Film camera.
