As title says, some Super16 lenses for sale. The Cooke Varokinetal is just a simply incredible lens; as sharp as it gets especially with Super16. This is an original Super16 done by Cooke themselves from the factory, not a conversion. Lens was serviced by Optitek about one year ago (an inner element had some haze and aperture was malfunctioning, Jacek cleaned it right up and brought everything back to spec, and of course did a standard CLA, along with conversion to PL mount and adding a 0.8 focus gear), and has not been used since servicing except to test it and play with it a bit. Has Chrosziel Fluid Zoom damper attached on zoom ring. Body isnt perfect, has the typical finish wear that comes with normal use, but who really cares about that? Glass and coatings are purdy, and the image it puts out is just lovely. Some of the usual light cleaning marks on each, nothing of note. Only thing it's missing is a front ring to bring the front to standard size for matte box...Ive used a janky setup with some rubber bands to allow my mattebox to work on it (seen in pictures). Mattebox not included; I'll leave the front OD ring up to the buyer to get, so they can have one done to their preference. Price: $4500 USD Kinoptik Primes: Interesting little lenses. They have some aberrations wide open as is typical of tiny little fast aperture lenses of the period; but when stopped down to 2.8 and smaller, they sharpen up beautifully. Flare on both is very well controlled, as is breathing...12.5mm has very little and the 9mm has NONE. 9mm F1.5 has focus tabs, 12.5mm doesn't, but I imagine the buyer will want to get focus gears anyway. These things are just so damn small and light, they would make for great lenses for use with steadicam/gimbal. The PL is mounts on each are simple adapter type, and they work just fine. 12.5mm has somewhat stiff focus ring, so it could use a CLA; 9mm rings turn smoothly. $1100 for the 9mm, $900 for the 12.5mm. If you want all three lenses, the Cooke and both Kinoptiks, I'll do a package deal at $6,000 total. All prices not including shipping/paypal fees. Thanks for looking.
