... not nearly as useful?
Due to price, I'm interested in Canon L primes. Great optically, yes they have issues for cinema use (breathing, manual focusing), but for the price they're hard to beat, especially compared to PL lenses at $4k-$20k a pop (most of which are a stop slower). After watching some demos of the Birger Canon mount with the Viewfactor Impero follow focus... that's pretty incredible, right? And one can only assume that the reason RED has made a great electronic Canon mount (and is selling SCARLETs with Canon mounts as a default option) is so this kind of functionality can become much more the norm. You know... being able to pull focus without using bulky lens gears and follow focuses (focusi?). Pretty awesome.
But until the REDMOTE PRO comes out... is there an alternative for pulling focus, other than to deal with the crappy focus rings on Canon still lenses by hand? I'd like to be able to shoot cine-style with a SCARLET-X package and Canon primes until the REDMOTE PRO comes out, and given we haven't heard anything about that in quite some time... it could be a while. Thanks for any thoughts!
