As someone who has not shot any video on my DSLRs, can someone explain to me the value in spending 4k on a 50mm zeiss lens to mount on a DSLR that is going to down sample the image to 2 mega pixels?

Because its not all down to dslr now is it.... The Otus will work wonders on a RED or Sony F55 and handle very well...


The market is even bigger since the metabone speedboasters are getting more and more popular. People are now using EF lens on all sorts of camera, like the Sony FS-700 and BMCC for instance.

(Just because I have not written on CR for many days so I felt I should write something)

The sigma lens will be priced at $999 (±$50) in USA.

I don't think you're too far off. I do expect the price to be 999 USD / 899 EUR.

How did I hit the bullseye?
Need to learn a lot more.

This looks to be another excellent lens by Sigma.  But their inconsistency in copies totally scares me away from spending any serious money with them.  Hopefully that reputation will eventually change.  Until then.  I'll side with consistency.
