    I have to say they we have tested just about every combination of lenses with the Dragon sensor and the Leicas win.

    This really should be no surprise.

    All the Leicas cover the full sensor and have the most resolution of all lenses tested.

    While some lenses will necessitate dropping down to 5.5K to cover... the Leicas don't. The resolution of these lenses are completely matched with the Dragon sensor.

    Just sayin'.

    Great. Now to come up with the 200Gs.

    I guess the age old you get what you pay for rings true again.

    Of course all other lenses will work at 5K-6K with varying results. And no matter what you use you get the dynamic range advantage of the Dragon. The Leicas are just the best of the best.

    Actually 200G's and a 3 year wait time!

    I know a fellow filmmaker who has a set of Leica Summulix-C's and has had an inkling that they would be incredible on the Dragon sensor.

    Thanks for confirming that Jim. We hope to do a test once he gets his Epic-M Dragon!

    The Leica Summilux-C Primes are the best super speed primes I have ever used. I have had the pleasure of shooting with them 5 times now, including a couple of "intimate" tests.

    They are technically superb and actually have some lovely character to them. At each T stop across the set they have their own unique look due to the iris design.

    Whatever they are doing in their coatings it is clearly alien technology.

    One of these days I'll figure out a way to get a set.

    Was the protruding lens bit fixed? I read somewhere that the 21/1.4 (and several other Leicas) couldn't be mounted on an Epic

    Used one two weeks ago. Mounted fine on the Red TI PL mount.

    They all fit fine on the standard PL mount.

    This is a FANTASTIC news Jim!!

    Ever since shooting with the Leica Summilux Cine Primes I have fallen in love all over again, even so the Master Primes still have their strong place in the market, it is mostly do to the fact that the Leica Cine Primes miss lot's of Focal lengths as of today, but when they'll have a truly full set out, then the Master Primes will no longer be King, but as far as Image quality in resolution, well, the Leica Cine Primes are already the absolute supreme King... ;)

    Now if only Band Pro would make good on my first reservation do last June... ;)


    Btw, for those that need a reminder of how incredibly SEXY the Leica S. Cine Primes look on the RED EPIC... ;)
