    Same thoughts over here too.

    I think another thing to consider is going to be people working for a 16x9 delivery for UHD screens too. That 6K HD and near 5.5K resolution is going to be a very commonly used format, especially for broadcast.

    Sorry, Phil...just couldn't resist posting it here. I'll take it off my post if you want.

    Thank you for all hard work and sharing the results with us all.

    and do all the focal lengths cover for all the above options?

    There are options out there that should cover that aren't all DSLR glass (and all the mechanical issues associated with their usage)... I am just getting ready to invest in glass after my Epic and Dragon upgrades and I'd like to verify for those looking to purchase full frame entry level cinema glass what our best options are... Thanks
    Absolutely. Those I can actually pretty much drop the info on now as I've tested them not on Dragon, but elsewhere.

    Zeiss CP.2 Primes - All lenses cover Dragon 6K, except for the 18mm. That does cover 5.5K however.
    Zeiss CP.2 Super speed Primes - Covers all Epic Dragon formats.
    Schneider Xenon-FF Primes - Covers all Epic Dragon formats.
    Canon CN-E Primes - Covers all Epic Dragon formats.

    I'll add that to the top.

    Phil, do you happen to have the Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L IS II USM?
    From what I've seen, it's super-sharp all around.
    I wonder what would come-out when combining this baby with the EPIC Dragon...

    The 300mm f/2.8L IS II certainly covers. I'm actually rather impressed by the 400mm f/2.8L IS II. The new stabilization on that thing is wonderful.

    However, I have to say for cinema use the 300mm T2.9 Red Pro Prime might be the deal of a lifetime really.

    What about the CP2 15mm?

    Oh and as a broke guy I am really kind of stoked that all these cheap lenses will cover! Cuz the reality is to even move away from DSLR glass I'd be moving right into the entry level Cine glass market, so to have so many inexpensive options is really kind of neat! Cuz they are all soo cheap that for a set of expensive lenses one can afford to own ALL the sets of entry level FF cine glass!

    Comparing the Canon 300mm and 400mm (both L f/2.8 IS II USM) on this site, it looks like the 300mm is just a tad sharper, especially in the corners (throughout the aperture range).
    Hover your mouse on and off the test charts to see the difference. You can select to add a 1.4x or 2x extender on these lenses.
    I don't have any experience with the RPP 300mm, so can't compare really. The price is definitely attractive ($5950).

    It will cover. The only CP.2 that has FF35 coverage issues is the 18. IMO, now that the 15 is available and since there are a number of great lenses in the set, I don't see why anyone would ever buy the 18mm. The 18mm CP is a complete turd and a huge blemish on what is mostly a rather good set of lenses. Oh, and get the 50mm T2 macro instead of the faster 50mm prime. The T2 macro version is miles ahead as an all-around better lens, the other is just "meh..."

    I'm assuming the Leica 19mm f/2.8 Elmarit-R will cover 6k?
