    Finally a new addition to the family, but I was really hoping for a makro or a wide lens... I guess I'll have to wait a bit more.

    Well, if it's anything like the 85mm it will be absolutely outstanding. Too bad, it's taking so long between lenses though.
    Another three or four before we see the next?
    Thanks,

    I'm considering getting a few of these for night timelapses and general dark filming. The Canon or Sigma alternatives just cannot compare visually. Well the Sigma 135 1.8 is the exception and is very good.

    The Tokina Cinema Vista Prime 105mm T1.5 is stunningly sharp.

    Phil, just wondering about the Otus lenses. We need some high quality primes. How good is the focus if you use remote control say RT Motion? We were recommended Cooke Mini for gimbal, but I mist say I like with the Otus that they are 1.4 instead of T2.9. Means you also got kick as low light lenses.

    I have an Otus set I use with RT Motion. Might as well be cinema lenses, the range maps to the full dial (and the focus mapping gives hard marks) Slight breathing, nothing objectionable to my subjective eye. Optical quality is obviously outstanding.

    W/ an RT Motion kit as Tim mentioned they map well and work great. They are mechanical focus lenses internally via helicoid and a decent one at that. On a regular follow focus they also pull well, but the 28mm does indeed have a shorter throw.

    I went full hog on these with what Duclos Lenses came up with in terms of metal gears, more robust fronts that are more ideal for matte box usage. I plan on owning these for the the rest of my life for sure.

    They are indeed fast and usable wide open. Actual T Stops are a bit varied across the focal lengths, but all within about quarter stop difference between primes.
