Hi
The title says it all really. Do all 35mm primes focus correctly on super 16 cameras...presuming the mount is correct. ie PL, Arri etc. Or do some have different focussing depths.
Many thanks Rob

Hi,

35mm Arri PL mounted lenses should work OK. Sometimes the barrels are too wide and may hit the viewfinder. When fitting a lens always make sure the rear element does not hit the shutter! A very expensive mistake!
