    Hopefully soon, if I get clearance from the producers.

    However, the look is quite well-known, the K35s have been around for a while. They are getting more and more respect in the industry as they get better known, and I expect their popularity to explode once larger sensors hit the market.

    Does anyone know where you can ACTUALLY buy a (new) set
    of these Canon K35 lenses?

    You can't, they haven't been made since the 80s.

    Actually I have loved the Master Primes ever since I first pay with them when they first came out, absolutely
    the Best Glass i the World, and still are, however the new Leica Summilux-C are lighter and with a smaller
    95mm front diameter same as the popular even smaller and lighter Ultra Primes.

    But at the end we end up going with the RPZ and Master Primes for our new Studios ;)

    Cristopher, our beautiful set of RPP's have been done by Duclos via a close collaboration to achieve the right Focal to be added, and they did in incredible job at it.

    And as time will allow we will service our RPZ's as well.

    1. Leica glass creates a different image that many prefer (I'm basing this on stills and Primos -- the new lenses are sure to have similar characteristics) = happy DP
    2. Size -- the Leica lenses are considerable smaller/lighter = happy camera op.
    3. Scales -- the Leica lenses essentially share the same focus scales across their lens line -- crazy but true. An AC can get used to the focus distance on the lens(es) and achieve an extra degree of muscle memory with their focus pulls = happy AC
    4. Cheaper than Master Primes -- people think these lenses are expensive; relative to their closest competitiong (Master Primes and S5i lenses) they are not expensive--they're actually pretty reasonably priced = happy PM

    Add points 1-4 = Happy Producer

    Oh -- and you can easily stick nets on 'em too.

    My main point of Leica vs. Master Primes was size/weight factor for 3D work,
    but at the end as said above, I just love the Master Primes too much, and the long wait on
    the Leica since we lost our place in line, is not a choice.

    As far as image quality, Bokeh, and over all fill to me there is nothing yet that has come close to the Master Primes.

    But wil enjoy playing wt the Leicas soon in off ;)

    BUt the Leicas are NOT better then the Master Primes or Vice versa.

    Not correct. Common misconception.

    Ultra primes are 95mm front as well (except 10mm, 12mm, 14mm)

    They are 91mm long - Leicas are 142mm long.

    Ultra Primes weight 2.2-2.6 lbs for most of the set vs. 3.5-4lbs for Leicas.

    MANY of the big 3D films are shooting on Ultra Primes.

    You should add Zeiss Standards as well. They generally go for $16-17.5K per set of 5 (16,24,32,50 & 85mm). They are very sharp and small lenses that are popular with many Redusers (including me) because of their organic image and high resolution.
    IMHO they are a much better choice for 4K & 5K than Supers. Also MKI Supers generally go for around $20-25K not $30K from what I've seen.
    Both Optimo DPs - 16-42mm and 30-80mm fully cover 5K on EPIC.

    Excellent glass - fast ROI - HIGHLY recommend.

    What I meant was to say that they are the same as the UP with 95mm front element, not exactly
    as the same weight, as I know they are not, I have all measurements, sizes and full Spec shits
    of all lenses ;)

    Yeah I also am aware of almost every one shooting UP's on 3D, but I want T1.3, T1.4 and I will not use the hold
    Super speed Zeiss ;) So its either Master Primes or Leicas, so for now its Master Primes ;)

    Indeed, that's why I bought the 16-42, the 30-80 will be coming with my next TV show, hopefully along with the new Duclos/Nikkor zoom. 16-200mm T2.8 and handholdable in just three zooms.... Love it!
