Lenses / Re: Canon U.S.A. Introduces Two New Cinema Prime Lenses, Expanding The Cinema EOS Prime Lens Product« on: January 10, 2013, 08:52:42 PM »
From what I understood looking at everything made for cinema, they're pretending to sell everything at 10-50 times more their price just because they think every person working for cinema is freaking rich.
In critical work and where multiple people are involved, it costs less to use the Cinema lens series than it does to use non-Cinema and make the require corrections afterwards or during the shoot.
Just think: how much would ever cost to produce such lenses? Think also at the other Canon Cinema Zoom Lenses with astronomical pricing, think at the bolts and knobs (which are just plain stupid pieces of metal) made by RED as accessories for their rigs, they're as expensive as if they were made out of solid gold...well they aren't!
I think it costs a lot more to design and manufacture these lenses than it does "L" series lenses.
