Phase One and vintage 35mm lenses

Postby vinteger » Thu Nov 08, 2018 11:37 am

hi,

I have couple (a lot) 35mm manual slr lenses. Is there a list of lenses that fit/cover PO?

I would love to use my CZJ Biotar 75mm 1.5 v2 (this version https://productz.com/en/carl-zeiss-jena-biotar-75mm-f1-5-version-2-lens ) and couple more fast 50s m42 lenses :)

Best regards

Hi,

I would also love to have faster lenses.

I recently shot on the Alexa 65. ARRI has some new DNA Lenses which are fast, very fast.
I used a 65mm with a T-Stop of 1.6. It was amazing what is was possible in the night.
The lens was not heavy at all. So it’s possible. The question is what lens design they used or which lens they just rehoused.
The ARRI DNA lens series also contains a 80mm T1.9. Sounds like the Mamiya 80 mm f1.9 :)

Here is a still frame:

Probably not many 35mm lenses as the lens mount to film plane distance is much shorter than with 645 or 6x6. Generally speaking a larger format lens will adapt to a smaller format, but not the other way around because of the mount flange-to-film distance.

Your best bet is the legacy Mamiya 645 glass or Pentacon Six mount lenses. I have a stable of both. Be aware that if you use any of the legacy Mamiya lenses, you'll have to modify the rear plate for the lenses to fit over the second row of sensors in the XF body. I have six Mamiya legacy lenses, and I've modified them all to work on the XF. The most useful, of course, are the 80mm f/1.9 and the 120mm f/4 macro. As the ultimate cheapskate I have essentially nothing in them money-wise, they're a much better value for the things I shoot than the $7,000 Blue Line lenses. And the CZJ P-6 MC glass is nothing short of amazing. I have a full set of those as well.
