    I was looking online at buying a 50mm 1.4 CCTV Lens for my Sony NEX 5N Camera

    And I came across a few of these which appear to be longer and have an extra piece of glass, Anyone know if these are of better quality?or would reduce lens flar?

    Any idea what the extra piece of glass will do?

    I love my CCTV 35mm 1.17 - ive had it on my NEX3 for months at a time. it yields some really strange results sometimes, but i prefer to have a few original / magical shots rather than lots of clean ones.

    That lens looks pretty cool! :D 

    Without knowing which type of glass this additional element is, it's impossible to say what it does. Generally, the quality of those CCTV lenses is not very good in terms of resolution, but they often produce some pretty cool results.
