    What's the image quality difference between this one and the version 1?

    I think you're cool so long as it's labelled 2.6-2.8. I think the grey area comes in on some of the foreign market (non US) models where it's still the Angenieux formula but only labelled f2.8.

    Very little difference as far as I can tell - but I've never had the f/2.6-2.8 Version I & II side by side.

    I have had the Japanese market model (77mm filter f/2.8) Version I (screw hood) and Version II (bayonet hood) and tested them against the f/2.6-2.8 Version II (same as you have) and found them to be almost identical. Any difference I put down to sample variations rather than design variation. Out of the four copies I tested, the copy I settled on was the Japanese market Version I (screw hood, f/2.8) in Nikon mount. It seems if there is a difference between Version I & Version II (both f/2.6-2.8 & f/2.8 models) it may be the optical coatings. The optical formula/design appears to be identical.

    That said, I did end up getting the Angenieux model rehoused by KimCamera in Korea, and will be using that one with my UM46kPL.

    Not exactly the Angenieux mojo, but still a similar very nice and vintage look

    So now I'm covered from 28 to 210 mm @ f2.8.

    Frank,

    Is that Sigma 70-210 2.8 a EF Mount? I just purchased one and the owner says that only f/2.8 works on the newer cameras. Did you have to get yours rechipped to use the apertures with your URSA Mini 4.6K?

    Out of curiosity, how much did you buy it?
