Recently overhauled by Optitek. Where they designed and installed a new PL mount, and cleaned/re-greased the focus and iris. Both operate very smoothly now.
Some details below:
-The minimum focus is 2ft 10 inches
-Tested against a Lomo 35mm SQUARE FRONT this ROUND FRONT 35mm has a wider field of view which is nice.
-The lens is sharp, and the focus breathing/distortion/mumps are minimal.
-Some light scratches on the front element. Nothing that might effect the image.
-Small chip / separation inside the front element along the edge. In my test footage it did not have an effect on the image so I just left it as is.
-Has rear cap and temporary front cap
-Produces very nice anamorphic images and a very nice lens
