Every lenses collector know Kinoptik, a famous french factory. But here in France, no photographer know it … Kinoptik is still producing lenses for army applications or special request. Apochromat lens series are famous for sharpness and very typical french bokeh. Here this is a Kinoptik Erax 32mm f/1.9 in rare macro version.

 

Kinoptik erax lenses are faster than Apochromat. Here this is a real Kinoptik macro erax, the minimal focus on Sony A7S is at 0.12 meter … Exceptional !!! Sharpness is crazy and bokeh delicious !!! I love this lens, colors rendition is perfect with a typical french cine feeling. To use it’s amazingly smooth. I really love this lens. Not too expensine … for moment !

Dallmeyer is an old and famous UK factory of cine and photographic lenses. Here we present you a 1930’s Dallmeyer cine lens, the Kinematograph (2″) 50mm f/1.9 in c mount. This lens was produced before Dallmeyer Speed or Super Six and it’s non coated. I find the lens very beautiful in black paint with a chrome ring. My copy is in excellent condition for an old lens. Perfect glasses and beautiful iris.

This Dallmeyer Kinematograph pre Super Six is surprisingly sharp with an great bokeh. The lens lans is small and lightmeight perfect to use on Sony A7 or micro 4/3 cameras like Black Magic or GH4.
