What alternatives are there for lightweight zooms other than the Optimo's? My DP thinks they flare and loose contrast too easily and wants some alternative options.

There is the Zeiss LWZ 14.5-45, which is about the same size & weight as the little Optimos. Nice little lens without the market penetration of the Angenieux lenses.

Do they have anything in the longer range to cover the 28-76 Optimo?
