    What about this lens?
    Someone knows something about it?
    Yes, that older zoom was designed for Super 35mm image circle, so you'll notice it covers Helium at slightly smaller resolutions, like 7K or 6.5K.

    Phil,
    Have you tried any of the Leica R lenses on VV sensor yet?

    I haven't tested every possible Leica-R lens, but the ones I own and a great deal of others cover nicely.

    Phil,

    that is good to know! I'm starting a Leica-R lens collection, starting with a Leica Vario-Elmar-R 80-200mm f4 lens

    For the atypical Underwater and Natural History shooters

    MONSTRO 8K VV:

    NIKONOS RS 13mm Fish Eye:
    ~ Nikon Mount (Gates Custom)
    Vignettes mildly on the smaller 8K formats
    Vignettes heavily from 8K HD to FF
    Covers up to 7K FF


    CN20x50 IAS H (aka 50-1000mm):
    ~ PL Mount
    A) No extender (1.0x) Full zoom range (50-1,000mm)
    Vignettes extremely in any 8K format
    Vignettes badly in any 7K
    Vignettes faintly from 6K HD to FF
    Covers everything up to 6K 3:2

    B) No extender (1.0x) Higher zoom range (+/-400-1,000mm)
    Covers fairly well (sometimes a very vague vignetting) on all resolutions
    Unless you need every candela available on every photon, I wouldn't use it with dynamic subjects

    C) With built-in 1.5x extender engaged (75-1,500mm)
    Covers the full range...
    On every resolution...
    Mind blown (but very happy )

    More tests to do with 'odd lenses'

    Thanks Phil!
    It's a 'whacko' lens, almost behaving against the laws of optics.
    If you're ever on our 'little rock', you should give her a test run :)

    Will do! I have yet to use it on an actual shoot, but did get to test it on a 6K Dragon a long time ago. It's great that the extender allows coverage and more importantly insane range.
