  1. Like the subject line says, I am crazy and want to convert my Contax Zeiss set (f2.8/25, 1.4/35, 1.4/50, 1.4/85) to anamorphic PL. How stupid or expensive (most likely, both) is this idea, and who would you recommend to do such an insane task? The FAQ mentioned many anamorphics started out as Zeiss lenses in the first place. Joe Dunton : JDC comes to mind but if you have better ideas, I’d love to hear it. Thanks!
  2. I was wondering if there was any way to convert a C/Y mount to PL mount without a full rehousing. I would love to have a set of MMJ Contax Zeiss lenses in PL mount but so far I haven't seen little to any information regarding this subject. I know it's possible to convert a C/Y mount to M42 so maybe it would be possible to convert it to M2 first, then screw on an M42 to PL adapter which might work on few C/Y lenses but I know for sure the diameter of the particular Contax lenses I want would be too wide to fit inside of the adapter. And I I know It wouldn't be possible to make the flange of the
  3. Hi All, I'm a new member but have been reading this forum for years. I'm a 25 year old budding cinematographer from South Africa. After fulfilling AC & operator roles across the spectrum for the past years, I've recently had the privilege to land work as a cinematographer and/or director on large release Music Videos & commercials. Basically I want to improve my personal rig to shoot more narrative passion projects. I have a great Contax Zeiss set but it has one problem. When shooting S35 format, the lenses wider than a 35mm don't perform well enough in terms of
  4. Hello guys, I am in the process of building my kit and I would like to ask for your advice. I want to reach the most cinematic look while maintaining maximal portability and reasonable budget. So far I was using GH5 with 25mm Voigtlander lens and right now I am thinking of either getting also 10 and 42mm to complete my set or going full frame and getting old Contax Zeiss supers. I like how Voigtlanders work with light, but sometimes I feel I could get more filmic results with vintage lenses (for example with my old Hellios that I am sometimes using). I would like to hear your opinion ab

  8. Curious about these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-Ver-Ex-Modified-Contax-Zeiss-Distagon-50mm-1-4-For-PL-Mount-Arri-Red-/261321787197?pt=Camera_Lenses&hash=item3cd7fe073d Apparently Contax were designed for still photography but the glass seems to be quite good for motion too. What I have a little trouble with is the wide range in cost of lenses that seem fairly comparable. Why some Zeiss lenses are a couple o' grand, and others are over 10 grand is odd. I'm not referring to a new Master Prime vs. an older used lens. That makes more sense. I'm thinking more older standard speed vs. o
