    Karim, you're onto something here definite;y. Valid point, though I never throw my lens to the end of the focusing range as it does go past infinity. That I am aware of. I typically magnify on my monitor to set critical during wides.

    Alex, Interesting point. I'd have to do another test with my Contax as well to see how it fares at distances past like say 6ft. Looking at the focus throw now, the Sigma has like 1/4 the throw from focusing at 6ft to infinity as my 35mm Contax does. The 50mm Contax even more than that. I'm sure that plays a big part, but I had never thought of the wearing down of the components. I've owned since new and taken care of it, but that doesn't mean a whole lot to the plastics through regular use. It is quite acceptably sharp, but in the closer end of the focusing range. I have more researching to do when it comes to image softness when stopping down. Gotta get it in front of a chart pretty soon I think to really be sure about anything.

Interior shots were lit by one skypanel 60c, some astera tubes, and a Lowell Rifa light. Exteriors were supported by two skypans 60c. Of course, we did some shot to shot matching, and basic local adjustments on things I didn’t like from set due time limitations.

    The second one was heavily graded, to a much more warming tones. The grain was also added in post. Otherwise, the halation is an effect from heavier than usual pro-mist filter and flary cinealta primes

    The TVC was color graded by https://vimeo.com/379022407
    Amazing stuff, man! Definitely some of the best Scarlet MX work I've seen yet!

    Alex, Great work. Wondering what the glass on this piece was? I also have a Scarlet MX that I got used in 2013. Still works just fine and I use it all the time as a B-Cam to my Weapon Helium. I will keep using it till it does not work any more...and then I will go find another one.

    Those were Arri Ultraprimes, paired with Tiffen Black Pro-mist 1/8 filter
