Has anyone had experience with Stone Cinema's PL lenses? They have rehoused Contax/Zeiss primes with prices close to CP.2's. Just curious.

I think these are much older lenses.

As in Contax Zeiss, mainly the same as the Ultracam lenses.

I question if they can be serviced. He said I could come by and test them out. I might do that next month.

Any more info on the Ultracams Stephen? I'm not familiar with them.

Saw a pic of the conversion. The focus marks are very close together and not spaced well at all. They look useless to me for FF.

Leonetti Made 15 cameras about 1979 as an alternative to Panavision. I own 2 which very ocasionally get used.

They got discussed before here
