Ok, video FINALLY up :) Vivtar 35-105 3.5 lens test. I've actually shot a cash paying job since then and I've been happy with it.

I just got finished shooting a bit with my Nikkor 28mm. I've done this in the past, only this time I knew what I was doing a bit better. Before I had the ISO set on AUTO and adjusted accordingly with the apeture ring everything looked all grainy and the whites were all a bit blown out.. Gotta learn somehow..

Video test up soon!

Here is a quickly assembled collection of "yard clips" from my SMC Takumar lenses (50mm f1.8, 35mm f2.0, 28mm f3.5). These are wonderful lenses that have unbelievable feel and build quality. The focus rings are works of art and the optics are good as well. At some point I want to test these versus some of my modern lenses on the 7D/t2i to see if they impact alaising at all. Love the look and the CA and sharpness appear quite good to me for any lens (note the shot directly into the sun and on the branches suspended in the sky).

George,

Sorry I failed to pull out the SMC 135mm f3.5 in the comparison. Oh well!

102 year old lens on a DSLR

If you want vintage, then you've got to check this out ... here's a dude using 35mm Wollensak Cine-Velostigmat F5 ... the kind of lens used on hand-cranked silent movies.

Not exactly the '70s vintage lenses you were looking for ... but super-cool ...

Robert,

Yep, that would be vintage. I think it's funny how so many of us are chasing technical purity, pixel peeping, obsessing on data rates.... and then others make interesting pieces by using very imperfect lenses to great effect. Something to be learned here!

Thanks for sharing.

Hey Robert,

you're the president of Juicedlink right? Glad to have you on the forum. Just showed someone how to use the use the CX231 coupled with the DN101 last night on my T2i. Great product. I also used it throughout my shoot in Brazil.

Thanks for posting!

Here is a clip that features primarily vintage lenses. The exception is the extreme wide angle shots when we used the Tokina 11-16.

How is the Mir 24 doing in Low light ?

It seams like a perfect wide angle choice.

The Mir 24 is an f/2.0 so it's pretty decent in low light. Not as good as f/1.4 or 1.8, but still really nice.

One thing gets me down tho.

550d and 7d has the 1.6 crop factor.

So, we, owners, have hard time getting good wide angle look to our footage. For example the Mir 24 will work as a 55mm lens.

We need to get supper wide angle lens in order to get An average Full frame camera Wide angle look.
And the supper wide angle lens don't come with a cheep price tag as far as i know .

Yeah, but those long lenses are even more expensive. It's nice to have a 135 that reaches like a 220 or a 200 reach 320. The Tokina 11-16 gives me all the wide I need on the cropped sensor.

ohoo, works for zooms as benefit. :)



But that Tokina 11-16 is 600$. Not exactly cheep. Have not seen any cheep and good vintage lens from the super wide angle section.

35mm and 50mm end has their choices such as Mir 24 and Pentax smc 50mm 1.4 . (Can vouch for this one, its amazing.)

Am i wrong? Is there choices from supper wide angle lens similar to Roger's mentioned Tokina 11-16 for a price of 100-200 $?
