Looks like a nice set. Stonecine priced.

Do you have any direct experience with these? How do they stack up against recent Nikon ED glass (not including Cosina glass)?

Sawyer camera had a set of them. Good lenses for the time.

Oddly enough, I have no experience with recent nikon ED glass, I still use canon Fs with FD and FL lenses.

But the K-35s will certainly be mechanically superior to recent SLR lenses.

Ironically, I just got done a few minutes ago viewing recently developed footage shot with K35s. They're razor sharp. (I was lucky enough to be able to hand pick these lenses individually from multiple sets. The housings can vary, as can the overall sharpness.) I'd put them up against anything. I should point out that the particular set you are looking at has a slower 18mm (T2.8). The proper 18mm which goes with those lenses is a full 2 stops faster, matching the rest of the set.

I believe they were originally supplied with the 18mm T 2.8.

Originally the shortest Zeiss SuperSpeed was the 25mm, arri recomended used the 16/2 Distagon with the set.
