    I believe the 2.5 you're seeing is a focus mark, judging by the other marks. As Ryan noted, the 40mm looks like it opens to a T1.8, the 50mm to a T1.4, and the 85mm to a T1.7.

    Very interesting. The focus and iris gears look awfully close to each other. I hope there's enough room to fit FIZ motors on both at the same time.

    Nice looking lenses! Great to have more options out there. Hopefully at a reasonable price :)
    My guess is that this is a combo with Minolta base lenses and Cinelux anamorphic fronts.. (?)

    You can always put one motor on each side. :-)

    That focus rotation though. What's that? like 30 degrees?

    The 50mm at least has a longer throw, looks more like 100-120 degrees to me.

    Shame the barrel extends during focusing, though...

    I'm more concerned with the fact that it's mounted on a prosumer camera with the lowest rent focus motor available. The company you keep.......

    C'mon Nick, bashing guys in Ukraine because they can't afford a RED to test their lenses on? I actually like that as this points at no show/all go business that did not devote 80% of their resources to marketing, scamming their potential customers into pre payment. We know how that usually ends up....
