Hello all!

I recently purchased an ARRI 35-IIC with the 3 lens standard mount turret.

I am doing some research and looking for a set of reasonably priced prime lenses.

What can anyone tell me about primes made by KINOPTIK in ARRI standard mount?

How do they compare with what's out there by Schneider, Cooke, Zeiss etc.?

I have a Kinoptik 9.8mm Kinoptik prime. It's a very nice lens, very sharp. It is also an interesting looking lens. The front element is practically flush with the outer lens barrel. Luckily I have a MB16 mattebox or else there would be problem using filters, unless you have 1x1" squares that you can drop in.

I think the 9.8 uses 2"x2" filters, just like the 16mm version, the 5.7.
