hello all,

Currently I have the OCT-19 18mm, 50mm and 35mm lens.

Which should I buy next? Im torn between the 75mm and the 150mm. I plan on going to Scotland in January to film footage on snowy mountains. Any advise? Does anyone have examples of 75mm and 150mm. I'm shooting on the Konvas 2M

Cheers

I have the 75mm and I like it a lot; and when shooting I tend to call for a 75mm more than I do a 150; but that's just me and perhaps is also just because I tend to wider lenses for the most part, so for me a 75mm is a very long lens. It comes down a lot to preference,, however I will say if you are going to be shooting a lot of EXTs, and mountains ect; a longer lens, like the 150 will probably be a bit more helpful than a 75mm.
One thing to consider with Lomo lenses is that while they are nice glass, there is a bit or variability between them. Some lenses are much nicer than others even from the same design/year/mm.
Anyway; here' a shot, uncorrected ect, from my 2m and lomo 75mm. You'll have to excuse the compression; it's the only thing the director ever got to me.

The shit is "unlit" inasmuch as we are just using the daylight coming in and there was a small sconce in the ceiling with a halogen bulb in it. The stop was around a 2.8
