Hi

We're considering a set of Optika Elite T 1.3's as an option, but have never
tested them.

Some questions:

1
General opinions

2.
Build and mechanical quality (compared to SuperSpeed MK II/III)

3.
Focus marks. Are they precise and sufficient?

4.
Optical quality and consistency?

5.
Servicability (These lenses will be used a lot...)

6.
Any other input greatly appreachiated.

They are considered as an option instead of another set of Superspeeds or
standards from Zeiss (thus not an alternative to Ultras or Masters, which we
already have a set of...)


Cheers!

Gunleik,

I'd recommend you contact Duclos Lenses. http://ducloslenses....enses/Main.html They may be able to share their point of view.

I purchased a set of S16 Mark III Super Speeds and had them checked at the Duclos shop. They were servicing some Russian prime lenses at that time and we discussed the differences. I seem to recall the biggest difference was the build quality and durability, the Zeiss were much, much better in that regard.
