Is there a quick way to identify the lens, say by its serial number (6169001) or by its dimensions (front of lens body is 2.25 inches, overall length is 2 9/16 inches). It is a 24mm T* Distagon f 2.0 T2.1 lens that with an Arri standard mount. The aperture is T2.1 to 16. The focusing scale is marked from .35 meters to 6 meters, then infinity. It says Made in West Germany on the barrel. I have read that some Arri lenses were modified with narrower barrels and were for close focus. Is this one of those?
I am also concerned that the aperture ring clicks on the stops (like a still lens) rather than the smooth continous movement of cinema lenses.
Thanks in advance for your help.
