I'm interested in using a S16mm Angenieux 12-240mm T3.5 (Arri B mount) on a camera with an EOS/EF mount.
What I have to do is use an Arri B to PL adapter, then PL to EOS/EF. The image circle is enlarged to cover S35mm by using a teleconverter/extender. As mentioned many times before on various places, Stanley Kubrick used this combo with a 1.6x teleconverter to just barely cover the S35 1.66:1 frame in A Clockwork Orange and with a 2x teleconverter for Barry Lyndon.
These guys have done the same: http://www.tetongrav...-of-a-new-lens/
My question is: Does it matter where I put a teleconverter/extender in the chain?
Does it have to be:
[Angie lens] -> [Extender with Arri B mount] -> [Arri B to PL adapter] -> [PL to EOS/EF adapter] -> [Camera]
Or would these two setups:
[Angie lens] -> [Arri B to PL adapter] -> [Extender with PL mount] -> [PL to EOS/EF adapter] -> [Camera]
[Angie lens] -> [Arri B to PL adapter] -> [PL to EOS/EF adapter] -> [Extender with EOS/EF mount] -> [Camera]
Work and cover the S35 sensor as well? I think they all do, but I wanna check here as well.
