    Hmm, that 12-24 f/4 sounds like a nice accessory for my SpeedBooster.

    Was actually hoping to see a 24-70mm 2.8 ART. Can't have it all.

    they said they were trying to match the quality of the otus 85mm f1.4 but then including autofocus option for more then half the price of the otus. Sounds good:-)

    this is a definite buy. But this is also an indication of how expensive the CINE glass will be.

    Hows that?

    The new 85 is not that much more than the list price of the other ART primes.

    For example:
    20mm= $899
    50mm = $949

    All of those are available much cheaper in retail.


    The CINE lenses will be more expensive but a lot of that is due to materials, construction and lower volumes.

    I reckon the cine primes are going to be about $3-5K each.

    Yeah... probably close to CP.2 price point. I think they might struggle to get a lot of sales tho as there is a lot of competition in that space now and they are simply re-housed stills lenses where as the CP.2 might use the same optics but they have updated iris and interchangeable mounts.

    Time will tell.

    I know they will be more than the photo lenses, I agree with Michael they will be pushing that 3-5k each as they don't mind going head to head price wise with canon. They will definitely be at least twice the cost of the standard photo lenses.

    Twice the cost would be very good.
