    Good question. Cam driven mechanics I believe is more expensive but I know of several lens lines and zooms that use cam focus mechanisms that are in the mid-lower cinema lens cost range. I think cam...

    A solid lens adapter, if made correctly and with enough tight tolerances, will not degrade the image. Think of all the Sony cameras with FZ native mounts + professional adapters, such as the F55. ...

    I would always say Duclos lenses here in Hollywood, since they are the best out here. However, if you're looking for Florida, reach out to ZGC, INC. They are in NJ, but their main lens tech "guy" has...

    Ah! So the cat is out of the bag. If there aren't any anamorphic elements, how did they get those focal lengths?

    Did they simply RENAME focal lengths "as if" you were using true anamorphic?.......

    Call Christine at ZGC. You'll probably only have to send to their head lens tech Guy Genin in Florida which is much closer than England. :)

    Absolutely!

    Although the manufacturer spec for lens coverage for the Mini S4's is 33.54 (image circle via Cooke's website), they put that because it was the size of Red's Epic MX 5k sensor...

    Perhaps at first it was a pain to get 87mm MB backs, but now they are almost everywhere. If Celere lenses prove to be popular too, making proper stepping rings or native backs to fit the set should...

    Can anyone tell me what the advantage of a m4/3 cinema lens is? m4/3 has amazing PL adapters on the market, which is superior because you can support the mount instead of the lens.
