Hi,

I'm interrested in Super Baltar and Baltar lenses.

I know that the Super Baltars werde made for the mirror reflex cameras (shorter flange distance), but what's the difference in 'look' and image quality between them and the older, the normal Baltar lenses ?

Are the Super Baltars 'better' or nicer or why are they mostly more expensive than the normal Baltars ?

The Super Baltars were made for the spinning mirror cameras, i.e. Mitchell BNCR and Cinema Products XR-35's, CP35's. The Baltars were for rack over earlier cameras w/o mirrors, again Mitchell et al. Yes, the lens of the Super Baltars are better. The Baltars will not work on any film or digital cameras made today except early RED's. Most of these lenses are sent to Asia where they are remounted for still based cameras, non-DSLR's, that shoot in digital.
