Great with all that info! What about ARRI Zeiss LWZ-1 and 2 (if there is a difference in optics)?
Would also be keen to know about the RPZ 18-85.......?
And has anyone tried MKIII superspeeds? I love these lenses and I don't really want to get rid of them. Hopefully they are ok. But has anyone tried the new Zeiss LWZ2? I just bought one of these and its my favourite lens at the moment. Especially at 4.5K 2:1.
I put up a set of MKIII Superspeeds on a pair of Epic-M cameras we used for some visual effects work for Transformers 3 through Kerner Optical. The shoot ended up using matched 16-42 Optimos on the Kernercam 3D rig... but I couldn't help myself, being a curious AC. I put up the beautiful set of MKIII's that Kerner has and took a look in the prep bay. All looked great, but the 18mm had me wondering a bit - Looking at 5K Full Frame - I thought I saw the slightest bit of vignetting/shading in the corners of the image. It was subtle - perhaps you can see it in the photo. The ultimate test would be a green screen or a neutral gray or something, but there wasn't any of that to be had. I know Dino's chart said the 18mm Superspeed was perfect, but I did see some slight shading, that couldn't be attributed to light falloff on the chart. Might be perfectly acceptable for meat & potatoes work at healthy stops, but wide open on VFX work I dunno.
Anybody have similar experiences? I hope its an isolated case as I absolutely love those lenses.
Sounds like the angle rouge is a good investment these days. How much does the v2 upgrade cost and is it available on lenses bought new? Or do you have to buy and send off?
Vignetting and slight shading in the corners - (?)
Maybe shoot a gray card and double check on a waveform monitor to be certain.
Looks like this has been asked a couple of times but don't think I saw a response: Does anyone know the coverages on the Red Pro Zoom 18-85mm? Also, I am very curious about the Red 17-50mm zoom.
Tom, I just did a quick test for you with my Ultra Prime 16mm. It's not your imagination.
