    Hello all,

    I thought this might be helpful as we regularly see people asking about lenses.

    On Vimeo I have created a group, as well as a number of channels, that highlight works shot on different lens selections. There's a channel for each company, and the group serves as a portal (perhaps redundant).

    The group is here: vimeo.com/groups/cinemaglass

    The individual lens maker channels are linked from the group page, but here they are as well:

    Angenieux: vimeo.com/channels/angenieux

    Arri: vimeo.com/channels/arrilenses

    Canon: vimeo.com/channels/canonlenses

    Cooke: vimeo.com/channels/cookelenses

    Hawk: vimeo.com/channels/hawklenses

    Leica: vimeo.com/channels/leicalenses

    Lomo: vimeo.com/channels/lomolenses

    Nikon: vimeo.com/channels/nikonlenses

    Panavision: vimeo.com/channels/panavision

    Red: vimeo.com/channels/redlenses

    Zeiss: vimeo.com/channels/zeisslenses

    As of 6am PST on February 5th, I have just set this up (and am going to bed). As a result, most channels only have a few, if not only one video (and in some cases not the best examples). I'll be scouring Vimeo myself over the coming days to add considerably more to both the group and the channels.

    Edit: If you add your work to the Cinema Glass group, I'll distribute it to the channel accordingly (or you can write on the shout box for the channel). At present you cannot add videos to the separate channels unless you're a moderator.

    If these start to gain substantial activity I feel like it'll be a nice way to reference glass for discussions.

    Open to suggestions!

    This is great man! I'm still trying to decide on a prime set, so I'll definitely will use this as reference!

    And yeah, wouldn't hurt to have Canon or Nikon as well!

    You'll find yourself going square (or 16:9 LOL) eyed finding all the samples!

    I'd suggest add 'Lomo Anamorphic' as a separate channel, as they are a completely different lens type to Lomo Sphericals.

    But, a great idea to resource all together... happy Vimeo hunting!
