A shop in the UK is selling a Schneider 28mm f2 xenon lens in standard Arri mount. I contacted the shop and they said it may cover 35mm, but they're unsure. Did Arri/Schneider make a 16mm version or was there only the 35mm version. Looking at the picture they sent me, it's definatly an Arri cine lens not some lens conversion of a 35mm still photography lens.

The 28mm Xenon is for 35mm.
Will also work with 16mm of course.

Cheers,

Most of the 50mm lenses in Arri Standard mount will cover 35mm. I know the Schneider 50 does, the Cooke Kinetal 50 does, and the one Zeiss I've seen does, don't remember if it was the Sonnar f1.5 though.

Best,

cool that it covers 35mm. anybody know if its very sharp? ideally I would like to have a set of 35mm covering lenses so I can use them for super16 as well unless the image will look like vaseline was smeared on the lens...
