Footage from the 13X3.5 wideangle lens

Hi!
I have in one of the other threads promised to give a link to some footage I shot with the fujinon 13X3.5 lens. It is from a musicvideo we shot in last week. The link is:

Hope you enjoy it!

Thank you for the contribution Henrik. I was looking for CA and vignetting on the brighter shots and I didn't see any. It looks great.

Does the lens breathe very much - compared the the 16x5.5?

For professionals I would say this lens is well worth the price tag.

I'd like to see a resolution chart shot with it if you have the time.

Looks great! Any filtration? How much CC? What mode?
I have the feeling we will see more stuff shot with the HD100 than any other of the new HD cameras.

Hello Henrik,

Good video, I didn't notice any CA or SS. I did notice in the dark areas HDV compression blocks, but I see those with my FX1 as well.

It is shot in SD mode - everything is set by default.
In the post I have added glow and filmgrain and have done a little bit of CC. Given it a bit more chroma and have set the midtone a bit higher.

As you turn the focus ring the lens will appear to zoom in or out. This is called "breathing." Low quality zoom lenses tend to breathe more than high quality lenses. Prime lenses usually don't breathe at all.

Thanks Tim for the explanation! Then I dont see any breathing - It does not zoom in or out when I turn the focus ring.

That's good news. You video looks great BTW.

I would like to see a resolution chart too if you have time. If possible could you do a direct comparison to the 16x lens.

Thanks for your contribution.

SD explains why I thought you used some filtration like a mist filter. It looks softer than I would expect from HD.
The video looks great, kee up the good work.
