Fresh Wounds -- Panasonic G1 & Kodak 63mm f2.7 C-Mount
One strange thing I noticed with many of my cine lenses, is that the more you stop down, the more severe the vignetting is. This is the opposite of what a 35mm lens would be, where the vignetting usually appears in wide apertures.
For most 16mm cine lenses, they still work best with the Micro 4/3 cameras as they vignette less, due to their smaller sensor size. I find my attention is shifting back to cine lenses in the last few days. I am quite attracted to the attributes of these lenses which in many cases differ greatly from normal 35mm lenses. Yes, they will become boring after a while, but for some subjects, they produce interesting pictures.
Kodak cine lenses occupy a place in my heart. These wonderful silver coloured little lenses are just fantastic. This 63mm lens has two version. A 63mm f2 and a 63mm f2.7. Both are nice lenses. The f2.7 version comes with close focus capabilties, while the f2 version is obviously faster, almost by a full stop. I will compare the two of them when I get a chance, hopefully when the flowers start to blossom.
