    No this is not new..................in fact many Panavision early spherical lenses are EXACTLY this practice. Rehousing lenses has always been a great method for creating "new" tools for cinematographers. In fact this is becoming a mainstay in the industry. Also as an example you might reference is the entire ARRI DNA lens inventory (for ARRI Alexa65 camera system), also rehoused lenses. Your questioning of EBAY I can not answer, because we source our optics elsewhere for the most part.

    No of course this is not new. What's new is the still lens manufacturers taking notice and coming out with factory cinevised versions. That is the real competition to the traditional "craftsman/artisan" approach. I guess we have to get more creative now....

    Jacek. Is there anything special about this lens that a proper motion picture lens would not provide?

    The front element was hand polished to maintain precision. They were hand built and individually tested so that reflected the cost/price. To each their own.... In recent years Sony developed aspheric molding tech that outperforms hand polishing for the most part...
