probably I'll have the chance to test a set on sunday.
I can compare the CN-E 24mm to a 24mm L (the mark II), the CN-E 50 to a Zeiss ZE 50mm Makro and the CN-E 85mm to a ZE 85mm.
Just for fun I could also compare the 50 and 85 to a wonderful Sigma 50mm 1.4 (much better than Canon 50mm 1.4) and the new Sigma 85mm 1.4.
Let me know what would you like to know other than mechanics, breathing and WO performance!!
We did some quick testing with all three this week on a miniature set for an animated project we are working on. They are definitely very sharp... slightly sharper at wide open through f2.0 than Zeiss ZE (f1.4)s. At about 2.8 and beyond, there is little difference between the two. They are a little heavy on focus. In fact, using the 85mm, the knob on our new Redrock Blue follow focus loosened a bit, resulting in an impending repair. We also shot some green screen with the 85mm with good results. I definitely like these lenses, but with the limit on focal lengths (no 35mm yet), it is tough to make the committment to these lenses IMHO. If you consider something like the Zeiss Super Speed CP lenses, you can still compliment them with ZE lenses with complete color match that also offer FAR better focus control than any of the L series Canon still lenses.
I own the CN-E prime lenses.
IMHO, they're the best cine lenses for the price.
The 50 mm 1.3 T and the 85 mm 1.3 T are both great, but the 24 mm 1.5 T is really terrific.
If you wanna see the 24 mm in action, download this still picture (http://www.yousendit.com/download/WU...TXZ0TWxFQmNUQw) that I took with a 5D MK II last week.
The iris was completely open (1.5 T)
