Pdw-700

Alister, On the 700 test the J16 looks slightly better than HJ14, how old was the J16 as I will look for one of these?

The J16 is not as good as the HJ14, but if you keep the J16 between f11 and f4 it does a solid job that for most shoots is going to be passable. Of course now that more and more lenses with ALAC are coming out the difference is more noticable between a ALAC lens and a non corrected lens. I'm not sure exactly how old the J16 is as I purchased it used, my guess would be about 5 years.

Alister, many thanks for that,
I have now sold my 2 year old A13x4.5BERM, managed to get 4,300 plus vat which I have been told that is a good price.

I have always bought Fujinon however the replacement HA13x4.5 is just silly money, about 14,000 I am now reluctant to stay with Fujinon.

I have been researching the new HJ14x4.3 and found a supplier letting me have it for 11,000plus vat I have received good feedback on this lens, do you know if this supports ALAC on the PMW-350? any other thoughts would be appreciated?

Thanks

David

If you get a Canon HJ14x4.3 make sure it has the very latest firmware, apparently the lens has updatable firmware! If it does not have the correct firmware there can be a communication error between the lens and PMW-350 that appears to lead to some back focus issues. I'm pretty sure ALAC will be active with the up to date firmware.

Re: HD vs SD glass again

An old thread, but I just saw this the other night. From the ABC TV show "Would You Fall For That?". Could they have found an older lens?
