This is my first post,
I'm one of those shooting director types, I do both on different projects, for corporate and promo and sometimes narrative, and I'm looking forward to discussing lots here.
My first question for this respected community is this: is there anywhere or anyone in London who can take a look at old cine lenses?
I have a 1972 Angeniuex 20-120 t3. It works great from 35-120, an ancient feel to the images that I love and a soft painterly look wide open, but anything wider on the zoom and it's crazy fuzzy until things are very far away. Close focus just disappears completely.
Also it's not even close to parfocal, though I don't know if that's supposed to be the case to be honest, as information is hard to find.
The zoom markings are out of whack so it's clearly been repaired at some point...
I'm using on an OCT19 to EF adapter from ciecio7 on eBay, currently with Canon APSC, and intend to use with the Blackmagic 4K whenever it turns up.
Any assistance or links in diagnosing what's up (if anything) would be greatly appreciated, many thanks.
