question

what is the coverage for the Zeiss 15.5-45mm on a RED Dragon at 5.5K and 6K?
Asked by: Jeff B.
The Zeiss LWZ.2 Lightweight 15.5-45mm lens is for Super35mm sensors. This is the size that most Hollywood productions have used for decades. However, the RED Dragon at 5.5K and 6K requires lenses that provide Full Frame coverage. Therefore this lens at those settings will vignette.
