    NiSi is working on another series of manual full-frame cine lenses targeted for use with mirrorless cameras. Appear to four fixed focal lengths, 35mm, 55, 75mm and 100mm, all of which should turn out very bright with T1.1. Initially, the Sony E-mount will be used, although the optics will also be available for other mounts, Canon R, Nikon Z and Panasonic / Leica L.

    So flange distance from REDs isn't small enough?

    I bet they will shine stopped down at T2.
    Are they heavy?

    Right now I'm having a "loving" conversation regarding LPL mounts and much of the motions towards a shorter flange distance are for improved optical designs and easier to execute faster optics.

    Years ago, and you can dig up posts on the net, many people in the business were egging people to develop a new rugged mount that is ideal for the future.

    Arri has gone with LPL, which is the same flange distance of a Canon EF Mount, but essentially a more rugged mount like PL.

    However, I was hoping for the industry to adopt a 26mm-ish flange distance for opportunities such as this.

    The main problem with this at the moment is most of the current generation of digital cinema cameras can't tap into something like 26mm. But here we are seeing what's possible for sure.

    If you were to make a T1.1 prime like that for PL mount that could cover VV, you would be looking at a lens around twice that size, perhaps larger.

    Who knows what brings DSMC3... more compatibility?

    Funny that cameras still are made with optical shutter specifications. Good that DSLR like A7 are pushing the slow moving motion picture industry. Now those sensors are really exposed. Hope they get the price of a new sensor down to be able to change it more often...

    Why does one need T1.1?

    On VistaVision to bother your AC. ;-)

    The funny thing is that on A7s/A7III you could even shoot at 20'000iso and have your lens stopped down at T8 in the street at night.

    Need is not why, though I'm certain I can think of a few applications where that light gathering would help.

    The real question is "why would you want it?" or better yet "what could you do with it?".
