I have the opportunity to get a (super16 converted) Canon 11-165mm (PL) for a very reasonable price.
I previously used the 10-100 Angénieux on my Super16 SR2 but was somewhat disappointed with the image quality
(in terms of contrast and sharpness). The man at the lab put it simply (but perfectly):
"It was ok in the 80s, but it simply doesn't meet today's expectations of focus, contrast and all-over look."
I was wondering if anybody had experiences with this lens, or even footage (16mm) that could be shared.
I am not sure if testing the lens is of great use to me, since my only reference is the Angénieux and I guess
it won't be hard to "beat" it.
Will one be able to tell the difference between images from this lens and those aqcuired with primes on Super16mm?
Will this lens meet our 'modern' expectations?
Thank you and a good day to all.
