          I'm second in line for MFT with Blackmagic reseller based in Sydney. I really hope "Shipping in December" means "Shipping in December"!

            For those that missed this, there is also an article here about future MFT lenses from SLR Magic: http://www.thephoblographer.com/2012...-and-the-rest/

            23mm F1.7 seems great value!

              I'd like to see a fast 15-16mm to fill the gap between the 12 f/1.6 and the 23 f/1.7.

              12, 15, 23, 35, 50 would be a very nice set on M4/3 BMC, especially if they were colour matched.

                Oh wow, they're, now getting my attention.

                Was I hearing correctly, when Andrew was talking about the new proto types they have, they might be either making them E-Mount OR M4/3 mount native?

                EDIT: Yes, I did hear correctly.

                  Was it SLR Magic that was releasing anamorphic MFT lenses?

                      That's what I was hoping for with this interview. I'm such a bargain shopper now and have a lot of respect for these guys making solid, manual, metal lenses in this market.

                        I really wish they'd make that 23mm F1.7 prime into a 23mm T2 (or what ever the Transmission rating would equate too) prime with cine-gears and all for the same price of $399. It's not due until February - might have to get the more expensive Samyang/Rokinon instead (which has the cine-gears) - only thing is, I'm hearing a few things here and there about the Samyang/Rokinon 24mm's sharpness.

                          Dear Simon,

                          We will NOT consider offering our 23mm f/1.7 lens with our CINE labelling because the lens was designed for photography. One of the factors we pay close attention to our CINE lenses are controlled Lens Breathing. Usually this type of design comes at a cost and is not that important for photographers taking stills. I have showed a demonstration to Matt Allard about this but it was not in the interview. We will have a HyperPrime CINE 25mm T0.95 lens that is more suitable for filming.

                          Kind rgds.,
                          Andrew

                            Brad,

                            Yes. But it takes time to design the lens. It is in the works but definitely not something that can be released in a few months.

                            Kind rgds.,
                            Andrew

                              Andrew, can you please tell us if SLR magic is considering making a 17,5mm 0,95 cine lens as the on from Voigtlander? It would be great to have a set of 12mm f1.6, 17,5mm f0.95, 25mm f0.95, 35mm f0.95 and 50mm f0.95 which are colormatched with proper CINE housing and features!

                              Right now I'm considering buying both Voigtlander and SLRmagic lenses, but I dont really like crossing brands when it comes to video!
