Super16 lenses to test?
Posted 21 October 2007 - 02:52 PM
I'd like to test some primes or a zoom, something that will not cost a fortune to rent...
The new Ultra primes may be out of price range, but how about SK4's? Zooms?
Anyone have experience with this situation?
Shooting Super16, stock TBD.

So if you're going for low light levels and practicals in shot, I recommend them highly.
As a complete side note, the Optex 5,5mm that has been a staple for years in the 16mm world as a ultra wide angle, is complete disgrace when it comes to sharpness. It's abysmal. This only became really noticeable when compared to the new Ultra 16 primes. Before, when compared to the rather soft Superspeeds it didn't seem so bad, so it got away with murder.

Again, I don't work for them and haven't used them but I am planning to test them against superspeeds on my next gig in November. I hope this helps and maybe you should have a look at them, they caught my attention.

After hearing that, I will see what kind of price I can get for the Ultra Primes. I've been dying to try them out anyway.
I've heard of the Elite primes, but haven't heard anything about them. If you remember, would you be willing to post the results of your test? My shoot is in December, so it could still be helpful.
