Back in 2007, I posted a thread regarding a lens compilation list because I wanted to know what lens options we would have for RED.
This led me to the idea of starting a new website dedicated to cinema lenses for our Red Ones.
Justin O'Neil and I are proud to announce:
For now, the primary focus will be lenses for 4k and beyond..but depending on how things go, we will eventually add new features.
In the coming months, I will add a user gallery with some stills from my own feature film projects I have shot using Zeiss Super Speeds and other lenses.
It would also be nice to get some quality examples of footage shot with different lenses.
I am still working on the "discontinued" lenses section to the website. If anyone has any nice pics (I have some pics of the lenses below but they are low quality) I can use for the website for the lenses listed below..please post attach the pics in this thread.
Matt Uhry helped out with the list below. Any other lenses I should add? (I want to keep it 4k coverage and up for now) I don't plan on including still lenses to the website yet..as I think there are so many dedicated websites for still lenses...but we are interested with including rehoused still lenses made for 35mm motion picture cameras like the century converted canon lenses.

a few cool website notes: at the bottom right corner of the page you can set the theme color settings to green or red. Also, the search engine is really nice..just type in the lens brand/type and your results will show up fast and easy.
Last but not least, we hope you enjoy the website!
