Anyone here shoot with an exotic French made Angenieux 28-70mm f2.6 AF in Canon EF mount or Angenieux 35-70mm f2.5/3.3 zoom lens on Canon full frame? Any other working professional photographers here actually ever use this zoom lens on Canon full frame digital with clients besides me? Most photographers have given praise for its IQ and performance of this rare Angenieux zoom. OTH I have ran into collectors that have this same Angenieux but were stuffy and cooky "collector types" and do not ever shoot with it... only take it out of the glass cabinet every 10 years. :/ Pros: For portrait or still life it has the absolute perfect color palette neither too warm or cool and perfect softness not too (clinical) sharp. Usability: Headshots, Fashion, Portrait, Macro, Still life, Landscape , Product, Commercial Characteristics: very typical of French Angenieux prime lenses and zooms both still photography and motion picture cine lenses, "classic painterly French pastel colors", medium contrast, medium to high lens flare...ect. I have seen a very similar look in French cinematography. 58mm filter Lens shade that looks cool and works fast f2.5 at the 35mm end true parfocal zoom Cons: Price, super rare zoom. A white buffalo is easier to find than this lens. Weatherproof/Durability: Horrible. Scratches and dings very very easily because of the early plastic made design barrel (1980s) , not weather proof sealed at all (like modern Canon lenses). Vulnerable to shock. Very vulnerable to dust, sand, water and humidity. Basically a "studio" lens or outdoors on a perfect day (no rain/snow/sand...) Prone to lens flare but may be OK if you like the look. Vignettes badly at 35mm. The ONLY professionals I have found anywhere using this lens besides me and a few stills photographers were... believe it or not ....cinematographers / videographers! It happens that Angenieux (because of their motion picture design background) designed the zoom, focus, and iris that are all the correct direction for cinema so they shoot this on HD cinema including Canon HD cameras. Angenieux no longer makes zooms for 35mm SLR cameras since the mid 1990s. Today many motion picture rental houses rent this zoom lens out to digital videographers. Any questions about the lens please ask! I have shot with the Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L zoom and the Angenieux zoom is about the same quality...but the bokeh and colour on this French zoom is very different. I actually prefer the Angenieux for its unique look. Its mint, has original lens hoods, filters, manuals...and a French hard case and pouch with gold velvet! I included photos shot with the Angenieux zoom with Canon full frame digital.
