Hi everyone,

 

I am looking for an old-fashioned lens to shoot a romantic scene.

I am looking at a Angenieux 25-250 T3,7 zoom lens and was wondering if anyone already used this lens and what it looks like in terms of flare, aberrations, sharpness, color, and overall "swag" :D

 

Thanks!!

 

G.

Like any zoom from the 60's, pretty nasty! most of course will have not had a proper service for 20 years so that won't help. Expect very soft wide open, fringing, distortion, lots of breathing & don't flare nicely. Stopped down to T8 will look quite sharp. Generally Cooke revolutionised zooms in the 70's starting with the 20-100, even today the perfect beauty lens wide open & is very sharp from 5.6 until 8.

 

10 years ago a Argenieux 25-250 T3.7 would sell on Ebay for $300.
