Thanks Vivek,Stiff focusing ring on any old Angenieux is major pain to get corrected. It calls for professional (experienced/specialized in Angenieux) repair (personal experience).
Sorry to bother and insist but could you help me a bit more.
I think you have one exemplar ot this Angy f:0.95 type M1.
Is your focus ring smooth enough to make it pleasant and fast to use ?
Given that the one I want to buy is supposed to get a little service to make it as smooth as it should be, do you think 500€ is a good price ?
Well it looks like very different in size and design than the black one you have, no?The cine lens linked is most likely to be similar (if not the same) as the other Cinors mentioned.
Apart from covering the all sensor, which is a big advantage, do you find the f:0.95 Berthiot to be a better performer than the Angy ? (I know it's a difficult and subjective matter...)
