    Just for the record, I kindly would like to point out that I never said they were full frame or that they had character.

    Quoting me with your particular response may imply like I did.

    Maybe I should have corrected his/her understanding based on what the Sony marketing paper says, but I use my Sigma 18-35 on the 5D Mark IV in HD (FF) at 35mm with just a little vignetting, so I didn't really think twice about what "coverage" may mean to someone, especially in this/their conversation.

    The info on the two separate versions is relevant...good to know, thank you.
    Retired.

    Since you don't particularly need any lenses but seem to have GAS, I would suggest buying vintage lenses. They are generally cheap, but still give you the thrill of trying out a lens. My suggestion is to just search for M52 mount lenses on ebay. M52 pretty much guarantees that the lens is not at all going to look like a new lens since it is one of the oldest mounts. The Russian lenses all have a lot of character. I personally have a set of mostly single coated Yashinon lenses. I never use them since I almost only do corporate, but it has been a good hobby.

    Thx guys, yeah a lot of vintage lenses have a lot of character. One thing I do not like about vintage lenses is the fact their coating is bad for shooting back lit subjects, as it will milk up the image so hard. Are there anti flaring filters out there or something? (even mattebox does not suffice, as sometimes I have the sun or other light in my framing, for example the sunset/sunrise)

    Quite sceptic about slr magic. I have had products of them before, rangefinder and anamorphic adapters, and they were all quite bad. So I said to myself I would never buy anything from slr magic again. Not seeing a lot of character in those lenses so far either. Allthough John Brawley seems to love them.

    If the optics are the same, perhaps I would rather go with the plastic housing if the weight is alot less as the v2 are weighing 2KG per lens. That is quite heavy, and plan them to use them also on a pocket 4K on a DJI ronin S. (I think it still can be done though, but less weight is def better for my back)

    You can probably find the original three lenses for very little money, if you can find them at all. They are not particularly repairable, so if anything ever happened to one people would just throw them away. Note that these lenses are only available in PL mount.

    The not being full frame part does worry me though, prob not a good investment future wise.

    Lenses with "character" yet with the most modern and flare resistant coatings?
