Lenses for the SI-1920

Could one of the SI folks advise on what lenses are being proposed for this camera ? If this has already been outlined, just refer me to the link. Thanks.

The best lenses to use are the Arri Ultra Primes (there are some specifically for 16mm called the Ultra 16's, and then for the longer focal lengths, you can use the normal Ultra Primes). Cooke also offers 16mm adapters for their zooms

After that you have the Zeiss Superspeeds and the Optar Elites.

Those are all PL-mount lenses.

After that you have c-mount lenses from Fujinon, and you have F-mount Nikkor lenses. We will also be supporting ground-glass converters.

So overall there are many professional options to choose from to get the look you want.

Jason, ever since I learned about you guys and your camera I've been waiting to hear those magical words: "F-mount" and "ground-glass converter" Now, that spells affordability to me. I'm sold!

Fujinon Lenses

The Fujinon lenses which you provide with the camera head were discribed as " high resolution lens up to 1.8 megapixel cameras" Were they good enough for the SI .? Have you done any testing with those lenses?
