    Indeed! From the site:

    Neil Fanthom and Bradford Young ASC have launched a new company called TRIBE7 and a new series of Large Format lenses called BLACKWING7. Focal lengths so far are: 27, 37, 47, 57, 77, 107, 137mm. Lots of sevens.

    Neil Fanthom was one of the ARRI Rental gentlemen who whisked me off to an undisclosed NDA location at NAB in April 2013, exactly 6 years ago, to foreshadow what would become the ARRI ALEXA 65 and its creative collection of characterful lenses. One year shy of seven years later, Neil and Bradford launch BLACKWING7.

    Bradford Young, ASC is the acclaimed cinematographer whose credits include Selma, A Most Violent Year; Arrival; and Solo: A Star Wars Story. He studied film at Howard University. Bradford’s cinematography on Arrival won a Silver Frog Award at Camerimage and nominations from the Academy, BAFTA and the ASC.

    Clearly, these gentlemen know about lenses and look and cinematography.

    The one area left to productize in the crowded lens for sale market is ‘tweakablity’... PV pretty much own this in hire and it is from my POV the most interesting space left. I have mentioned this for years to lens companies and all understand the value but look worried about how that would work. ARRI are doing soming interesting things with glass behind the lens options on their signatures but these guys are nailing the marketing and comunictation of this...

    I had the pleasure of taking these lenses out for a test shoot the other night. These are some very exciting and fun lenses. We shot with both a coated and an uncoated set. Both sets looked and felt great with compelling flaring wide open, and perfectly round bokeh.

    Hopefully this inspires other lens manufacturers to add tuneability options to their lines.
