hello.
I am trying to find something on Canon 200mm/2.8 pl mount lens. I know I will have it in a kit with Zeiss HS MK2 and I wonder how does it compare to the lenses in the kit, if I can match them or not, how soft are they and all the rest. evidently there is no time for testing.
I particularly want to know how it behaves on Red camera, considering that Zeiss HS are unusable with Red when they are wide open (in the test I've done the image is acceptable only from 2.8 up) but still good enough on film, even at 1.3. This, as I understand is an issue of the sensor physics. this is not really clarified, only based on discussions and speculations.
I can't find anything about it and it seems like a rare lens. this might be due to poor quality. I am also concerned by focus misadjusments due to built quality.
thank you.
