    Looks awesome. How much is it going to be? Also any vignetting with that 4x5 matte box?
    Thanks

    Its going to be $1,499/pc. We have tested it with Bright Tangerine Misfit (the one in above image) and looks fine!

    I'm in big time. I've been using the stills EF version since day one and modified it for motion work. Really happy to see it finally in a proper housing.

    Still nothing like this lens on the market and useful for formats from S16, S35, to VV.

    I'd like to see the 8R on S35 compared to this on VV.

    Slightly wider FOV on the 12mm and a newer design. We tested it back when the EF mount version came out. You can actually get wider, but at the cost of speed. There's still a rumored 10mm f/2.8 that potentially cover VV, but at this T Stop this is as wide and rectilinear as you can currently go other than slower 11mm options.
