Konica Hexanon AR 40mm 1.8 - love the colors of this lens, do not love how it performs at night. Strictly a day-time lens for me.

Kern Paillard Pizar 26mm 1.9, this is another 16mm cine lens, specifically a Bolex lens. The Pizar was the mid-range line from Kern Paillard, more accomplished than the Yvar line (usually tripplets) but not as good as the Switar line (usually 6 elements). This lens is a 5 element construction. Built like a swiss watch, excellent craftsmanship despite it's "affordable" target. Optical performance is very good, but somehow the older, simpler construction Kodak Ektar is better, to my eye.
