I would like to thank the team for there efforts..
I have a couple of questions:
Did you detect any pincushioning on the Optimo DP 30-80?
Was there any testing of the lenses close focus 'performance' (not just a min focus capability)?
We did not test performance at close focus - Trust me we had our hands completely full doing what we did in a day.
I'll take a look at the RPP's as a CF set when I get them and our camera comes back from being on rental.
Excellent work, kudos to the SALT crew.
Is the RPP 100mm noticably inferior to the other focal lenghts apart from the flaring issue?
In my Nikon mount Zeiss ZF set, I feel the 100mm is the best lens in the set optically. Zeiss have adapted the ZFs to cine lenses with the Compact Primes -- all focal lenghts except the 100mm. Curious.
For reference, is the 100mm Master Prime weaker than the other Master Primes?
The 100mm lenses were softer in comparison to the other primes in the same series, that doesn't necessarily mean they are soft overall, just that usually the next prime shorter in focal length was sharper -- or at least, looked that way. But I find long lenses in general start to look flatter and thus less snappy and edgy, could partly be due to how hard it gets to focus them, or a loss of contrast, I don't know. You are looking through more air, so to speak.
Maybe Pawel can compare his 100mm Master Prime to his 50mm and 75mm and tell you.
