Hey everyone,

I'm fortunate to currently own an immaculate set of set of 4 Zeiss MKI prims (9.5, 12, 16, 25mm). For my next project however, I will be doing mostly static portraits so I am in the market either for super-16 telephoto primes (ballpark 50-100mm) or a zoom lens.

I have hunted high and low and it has been rather difficult to find any S16 telephoto primes in the upper tier (Zeiss, Schiender, Cooke) that are fore sale individually.

I am really hoping to spend no more than 5000. In this range...

*Would it by advantageous for me to be in market for a zoom lens instead of further primes at this point (so as to cover a wider range, to have the other capabilities of a zoom, and because they seem to be more readily available)?....I may be wrong but there seem to be more top tier brands of S16 PL Mount zooms (Canon, etc).

**Also, if anyone has any resources for dealers that might have S16 zooms or telephoto primes in stock I would really appreciate it. A lot of the dealers of this stuff seem to be very difficult to find on google sometimes.

Thanks!
