I just bought an Arri 35III, with a PL mount, but lenses these days are often more expensive than cameras themselves, so I'm thinking of using still lenses for starters. Let me just say that I am aware that a still lens is no replacement for a real cine lens. I know about some of the problems I can expect, but I'd like to hear some opinions about image quality.
If I were to use a Canon or Nikon zoom lens, with a PL adapter, can I expect a decent image quality, and frame coverage? I know these lenses are designed to cover a larger frame, so I should be OK right?
Any other warnings or advice would be appreciated.
