    all these are lovely guys but yes a fair chunk of change.... i am just after personal use so mark ii's are fine , I would rather avoid mark i's as i would rather have better mechanics the mark ii / iii offer and non triangular bokeh. i also fancied PL mount for simplicity and having a streamlined system but if the price is right i could pay to get it adapted to pl from arri b , anyone know of a good tech to make this conversion in the uk? or are ciecio7's adapters enough performed by oneself?

    i guess my budget dictates i play a bit more of a waiting game to grab a better deal than some of these pristine looking sets appear to be . lovely though so cheers for the lens porn

    actually all the super16 speeds have triangle bokeh, i have mkII and MKIII lenses and they all have the tringle iris blades.

    duclos is fully converting one of my lenses right now from b- pl for $400…or you can get the conversion parts from visual products, not adapters but conversion.

    MKII and MKIII have 3 blade (correction: 9 blade triangle) apertures and create triangle bokeh. MKI have 5 blade (correction: 6 blades hex) apertures and create a bokeh similar to Nikon AI/AI-S lenses.

    True Lens Service - http://www.truelens.co.uk/

    Arri B to PL will cost you 280 from them. Much cheaper to get the Arri B to PL adaptor from ciecio7 (that is what I did). They are held in place with 3 grub screws. Easy to fit and are rock solid.

    True Lens will charge you about 65 for lens gears and 65 for 80mm fronts (so the MKI's all have the same front and fit a matte box). Only the 16mm and 25mm of the MKI's have filter threads. The 9.5 and the 12mm have no filter threads. None of the MKII or MKIII have filter threads but they do all have 80mm fronts so fit a matte box.

    And here is a MKII 50mm that went for a similar price:

    they are indeed the ones i was referring too. you like your ciecio7 adapters then adam? good to hear thats the route i was considering, good to see the other options though. Really all have triangular do they ? well i can live with that , my contax have funky ninja stars and i digg that - better mechanics is enough of a reason for me - however, has anyone ever tested whether their is an optical difference between the mark i's and ii's? (i know the mark ii and iii's are the same).

    Yup. Fits perfectly and it's rock solid. As if it was shipped like that.

    Yeah. MKI's have 6 blades. In 1984 they introduced the MKII and switched the aperture from 6 blade hex to a 9 blade triangle aperture.

    as well, before i had the 50mm, ive been switching mounts, which was a pain, but using a 50mm 1.4 contax MMJ and it matched almost perfectly with the s16 speeds.

    here is the real price of what 50mm s16 speeds go for when someone knows their value

    there was another but it sold for 3499…i know because i bugged the guy for a month with best offers
