but when the options are to offer an elitist tool for an elitist gang, i'd prefer a decent tool (= realistic = digital offer) instead a dream became a real industrial nightmare.. a real reason to avoid to shoot film..
i will tie the Red to the cord on a flag pole and raise it to the top, if a tsunami comes my way.
Some of you may find this chart useful for FOV comparison:

've just seen a picture of the cook....it's hudge!
You think i can take the Red on my shoulder with this lens?
The nikkor seemes more easy to handle....but 17-35 isn't to short?
is there any other nikor with spec 17-55 or 70 with good quality?
A very good zoom lens for the future handheld shootings with the RED ONE.
Nikkor AF-S 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED VR
"VR - Vibration Reduction
This innovative VR system minimizes image blur caused by camera shake. It allows handheld shooting at dusk, at night, and even in poorly lit interiors. The lens’ VR system also detects automatically when the photographer(cinematographer) pans — no special mode is required."
Test review at
Might not be ideal on the RedOne. There won't be any power going to the lens so there will be no VR and I can't see an iris ring so I presume iris on this lens is not manual (please correct me if I am wrong).
I don't know this lens but another problem you sometimes find with lens designs where the front element telescopes in and out with the zoom is that the weight of the telescoping part can be enough to alter the zoom slightly when you point the camera down or up, not something you want to happen when you are shooting motion. Of course that may not affect this lens but it is something I would watch out for
