F Bulgarelli Posted August 19, 2009 Share Posted August 19, 2009 Had a chance to project a set of the new RED primes and was actually very surprised with what I saw. Good contrast (not as good as Cookes or Ultra Primes but still very good) Slight pin cushion/barrel distortion on the wides (not much really) Hardly any breathing (that really surprised me there because it is one of the hardest things to build on a lens) The 25mm is super heavy, steadycam guys are not gonna love it Some of the long lenses had better close focus than the Cookes (What!!??##) Good resolution, resolving almost equal to the Cookes I understand they are in the range of $20.000 a set, I couldn't believe it. Also, tested the light transmission and for the most part, T2, a little off from the 1.8 they claim They do feel a little more bulky though and the front diameter is 110mm, another accessory you will need to make that clip-on work. overall, not bad Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
