Hi all,

I am looking into buying a set of Zeiss Compact Prime lenses. I was just wondering if anyone has shot with the Compacts having the PL mount and the compacts with the EF mount.
Is there any different between the lenses in terms of focus pulling, or are they exactly the same lenses just with a different mount?

Many Thanks,

Rob

I suggest contacting Mitch Gross at Abel Cine in NYC. They're a dealer for them and Mitch was showing them off at NAB. I'm pretty certain Mitch said the only difference was the mount itself, that the mounts can be interchanged...but I'm not the horse's mouth...Mitch is.
