    why is it so expensive compared to other two zooms form the same line? if it cost like 11 -20 it can be a good solution htat wont brake your bank. basically 11 to 75 is really workable range

    Pros and cons there. I've rigged around worse. Some people don't like the gear up from because of potential torque related movement. I'm at a point where I work around whatever. Ideally more generous spacing for sure, but this is a compact zoom really.

    Probably due to it being an entirely new design. I am expecting performance on par, but more likely better than the other zooms in this series. But we'll see.

    Fair question. Here in Toronto, many home have driveways in an alley behind the narrow homes. During this pandemic, many have turned to their laneways as an extension of their homes to keep active. Of course, Laneway can have many meanings but that's how this project started. Now it's more of personal stories whether they have a laneway or a regular street and home.

    Another point to mention is that this layout is better for gimbal work, because you want to have the weight close to the camera to balance it more easily.
    Looks similar to the Atlas Orion Lenses.

    I think for gimbal work you are much better off with EFF drive by wire setaup. No external motors or gears on lenses needed....

    This lens naturally gives a vintage look or you get that during post production (i am not talking about grain/noise)?

    I heard the lens designers learned a lot from when they designed lenses at Olympus. It has a controlled flare and not too contrasty. The grade I'm trying for and added grain does lend to a vintage feel but I get nice results without using diffusion.

    These are beautiful. Love the grade and the simplicity of the storytellig.
