Arri 16S - Prime Lens Set Best Practices

Recommended Posts

Hey 16S People - 

Finally doing right by my 16S and am making up a set of Cooke Kinetals for use in a few upcoming projects. Camera is good to go more or less. In the past I have borrowed some old Zeiss primes for use in the bayonet mount, which I’ll miss certainly, but am happy to be using the turret again. 

With the standard mount lenses, what are people using for lightly greasing the standard lens mounts for use in the turret? Vaseline ok? I actually have the Arri grease as currently supplied by Arri. I don’t mind using it but if Vaseline works I’ll be happy to use that too. 

Also where are people getting older lenses serviced these days? The 50mm needs to be collimated and has some haze that I’d like a solid lens tech to have a crack at removing. Any info appreciated. 

Stay safe out there!
