KH20x6.4 KRS Canon HD Lens

Anyone shooting with a KH20x6.4 KRS Canon HD Lens?
Any tips on shooting with it?
Any camera presets to share for the lens on a 330L/350L XDCAM?

I have that lens. There are no lens files available for it as far as I am aware. It is soft beyond f4 and past f11 so keep in that sweet spot if you can.

I have it on a F350. I have not been over impressed by the lens, but I have not any other half inch HD lens to compare it against. There is not much CA and it is sharp in the center, but the edges can be soft depending on exposure. It is better than a SD lens but not buy a huge amount.

Alister, thanks for your reply.
Do you use any filters with your lens?
At minimum do you use a UV Glass Protection Filter?

I have a Tiffen clear glass that I use for protection, but it does soften the image a tiny bit so i remove it for HD work.

What is the best quality lens for the 350 for an independant film maker?
