    Sony SCLPK6/F Reviews

    CineAlta 4K Six Lens Kit (PL Mount) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best buy value. I bought a set 3 years ago and it has been the best buy. I have 1 f55, 1 fs7 and Alpha 7SII, all three with PL adapter and I have do projects with the 3 cameras simultaneously, equaling the resolution power and color reproduction between the 3 cams. The resolution power is real for 4K and when I finished in UHD or HD the result is very satisfactory. The only details is that they are quite heavy lenses, but the cost-benefit ratio is very good. In wide lenses have some slight spherical aberrations not so bad for the cost. I have done many commercials, as well as the image and several scenes of Top Chef Mexico.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent entry level primes Amazing lenses for the value at the sale price. Sharp, clean, and neutral is all I really ask of lenses. if I want a look I'll start messing around with diffusion and other filters. Reasonably fast, and sharp wide open. My only real complaint with the lenses is that they are big and heavy...but they are well built. Great mechanics. I even had a green AC drop the 20mm during a shoot, and it survived the impact on the wooden floor! Perfect set for an owner op. Great for daily use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid kit I primarily work in advertising and occasionally do narrative work. I came across this set a few months back on a job and fell in love with them. They are very well made, smooth, sharp, lenses. When I found out they were on sale at B&H I bit the bullet and bought a set. These aren't for everyone though. The lenses are relatively heavy and large when compared to others in their price range. More comparable in size and design to cooke s4's than Zeiss CP.2's. Wide open they are tack sharp. The bokeh is pleasing with a nice creamy quality to it. Mechanically these lenses are bullet proof. Visually they have a quality between the sharp clinical look of a zeiss ultra prime and the smooth dynamic look of an s4. These lenses have a very neutral optical coating with almost no warm/cool shift. They would make a very nice workhorse kit for someone who needs the quality but not the brand of the bigger names. I have used them on the Sony f55, Red Epic, and Arri Alexa with no complaints.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much Overlooked I've had my set for almost two years. I use them with my F55 and Arriflex 3C. Other than the need to do lens changes a bit more carefully, due to their size and weight, they are stellar lenses. Excellent color, contract and sharpness, across the entire set. It's unfortunate lens experts haven't given more attention to them since many buyers, who can't afford comparable lenses, are missing out.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Lenses Great value over all! I'd have to say the color rendition and color matching is very good. No noticeable color fringing or CA so far. Tact sharp but not clinical, but most definitely pleasing. Pretty heavy so balance well and/or hit the gym if hand held! Focus ring and iris ring is pretty smooth no binding yet but we will put it through the paces.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent set of primes for the price Excellent color matched Minolta glass. Mechanically very solid. In my opinion these are optically superior to the CP2's and the speeds aren't all over the map. The only downsides are that they do not cover FF35 and they are a little heavy like the Red primes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Competent, dependable and a cracking image... I have to echo another reviewer here - and why I'm writing this review. I cannot understand why these delicious lenses haven't gained more traction. Quite simply, these are professional lenses - 'professional' means people pay money for the results you provide. And these lenses deliver money-making, on-screen quality again and again. We use them on FS7s and they are transformational. I still get excited in the edit suite looking at their perfect image capture - no compromise. The even illumination across S35, close to perfect geometry (the 20mm - the widest in the set - and technically the hardest to correct optically is distortion free), very low CA (a bit of longitudinal CA in extreme situations but no CA at the point of focus), flatteringly sharp (faces are rendered beautifully but the eyes still snap) and that 'pop' of the subject makes for, I think, an irrestible combination. No surprises, just very well drawn images. We do a fair bit of VFX and the fact that the set is matched is a huge benefit. Relative out-of-focus backgrounds look the same between the lenses at the same aperture so the look is consistent both in composites and, of course, adjacent shots of the same scene. OK, they're big and heavy. But there's no compromise. And if you don't want to compromise then you should seriously consider this glass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another pleased buyer I've been a Canon L glass owner/operator since moving to the 5D Mark II as a video shooter in 2010. And, as good as that glass is, if you're looking at these lenses, you know just how insufficient they are for video work, particularly if you have moved back to video cameras. Having grown tired of renting CP2s and CN-Es, I was surprised to find these much more affordable lenses. Since buying and using them, I've grown even more surprised that they have garnered almost no press or even chatter among cinematographers. Make no mistake that these lenses are rock-solid (quite literally). As everyone said, yes, they are not lightweight (about six pounds each). And, as cine primes, they are not for everyone. They carry almost no brand recognition or loyalty, and so they are not likely to rent out in favor of glass from the likes of Zeiss or Canon. So, if your business model requires that you rent out your lenses, you might want to reconsider. But, for me, these lenses have changed the game. The price and uniformity, coupled with the quality, is simply unmatched by any other manufacturer. And, because they are less expensive, I don't need to rent them out anyway, which is good for their longevity. They are matched glass, not just in optical quality/color/other characteristics, but also in terms of their design. They have the same constant maximum aperture. They are all the same size (except for the 135), and they all put the focus gear in the same place. They have the same front diameter. They all share the same bokeh characteristics due to the 9-blade iris. In short, they are a proper set of lenses, unlike the offerings from some of their most closely matched competitors, which have apertures all over the place, and are rehoused still lenses. But perhaps the most important thing to note is that the character of the lenses works well for me. They are just pleasing to look through. They are not overly clinical, but they aren't too dreamy either. They are quite sharp, but they still produce a nicely rendered image, where you feel like you are right there with the image on screen. Breathing and CA are controlled very well, as is flare. There was no compromise with these lenses, and I was immediately confident that I could implement them with no surprises. I was hesitant to invest without being able to rent or try them first. And, I'm still surprised that I can't find much in the way of sample footage or other reviews online. I guess I'm just lucky to have found them.

    Hello, Im trying to buy a matte box thats a good fit for these lenses, and I dont have the lenses yet either. What is the diameter of the lens housings at the front of the lens? I know they are pretty big, I just want the best size mattebox so I don't have to deal with donuts if possible. Thanks!
    Asked by: JB H.
    The front diameter, for the purposes of matching with a matte box rear: 114 mm (4 1/2 inches).

    How do they work on a Sony a7r mark 2?
    Asked by: Alessio D.
    This adaption of PL lens to E-mount camera is easy and thus there is a variety of adapters available. Since these adapters are robust to hold PL mount lenses solidly, they are expensive.

Any feature film shot on these lens with arri alexa,or red epic or black magic Ursa cameras?dr asok
    Asked by: Anonymous
    These Sony lenses make their owners happy and are commendable cine lenses. However, they are not on par with Zeiss Ultra Primes. Thus the difference in price.

    will these cover 5k on a RED Epic-X?
    Asked by: keith d.
    The Sony CineAlta 4K lenses are designed to cover the Super 35 format. The RED MYSTERIUM-X sensor is similar in size to the Super 35 format therefore these lenses will cover it's sensor. There may be some slight vignetting with the 20mm lens but not objectionable.

    It is suitable for sony a6300 camera?

    It is suitable for sony a6300 camera?
    Asked by: Sukesh
    While it would be possible to get a PL to E mount lens adapter and put these lenses on a a6300 camera, we feel it would be overkill, like bringing a shogun for a game of darts. More appropriate would be these: Rokinon 16, 35, 50, 85mm Cine DS Lens Bundle for Sony E Mount B&H # ROSLKSE (B&H Kit)

    Will this kit cover a RED Scarlet-W 5K sensor without vignetting?
    Asked by: Christian
    The RED Scarlet-W 5K is Super35 compatible. These lenses cover Super35 and should work fine. But as in any movie production, testing is the wise and prudent way to go.
