    Looks like SLR Magic just launched EF Mount MicroPrimes! Andrew starts speaking about the new lenses at about the 3:22 mark. They are marked as APO, so I wonder if they are the same optics as the PL...

    I’d be interested in a couple CFast cards! I’m undecided at this point as to size. Either 2x 256gb, or 2x 512Gb. Potentially even 1x 256gb and 1x 512gb. Most likely 2x 256gb though.

    Ah! Gotcha. In that case, I'd probably lean towards the 25. I do agree that the 25 lags behind the 50 and 85 optically (although that's generally the case with most lens families) but it'll fit a...

    Only one lens? Probably the 32, but then YMMV. Depends on what you are planning on shooting with it.

    I'm totally with you on the idea that lens design is all about compromise! It's a point that I've echoed in discussions many a time (with the caveat that I have no personal experience in optical...

    Thanks Kosmokrator! The 82mm filter thread consistent with the 25 and 85 is good to hear.

    The 22" minimum focussing distance is a little disappointing when the average Cine spherical 32/35 lens...

    Thanks Kosmokrator! Did you happen to take note of what the minimum focussing distance was on the 32mm? Or perhaps what the front filter thread is?

    The Zeiss ZE and Rokinon would be pretty similar from an optical quality standpoint, although I'd give the edge to the Planar. The build quality would also be much higher on the ZE, but you would...

    Actually the rear shroud threads right off specifically so that you can use these lenses on a PL to EF adapter. That's one of the aspects I really appreciate about these lenses. The past two shoots...
