...now that we video in a device designed for it, can we get back to real DSLRs now?

I am *so* tired of manufacturers trying to pimp video as if it were a feature of a DSLR... it's 100% useless to me. Give me dynamic range and low noise and high ISO and 15 MP/FF or so and quit trying to turn a still camera into mommy's home movie maker.

I understand people want to use our fabulous lenses, yeah, great, but this is the way to do it -- with a dedicated device -- not by filling up an otherwise fine still camera with irrelevancy.

Where's my 5DmkIII?

Any ideas if the lenses will AF on a traditional DSLR?

I doubt it. Why would they, they are designed for use with a camera that doesn't have built-in auto focus.

Not a crazy question since they are also being touted for use with 35 mm sized sensor cameras, e.g. 5D2, 1Dx (assuming  that's a 1Dx in the picture with a branded red C on it).

Great find!!

So it is supposed to film in 4k in an APS-H equivalent crop mode, interesting.

I just read in http://www.canon.com/news/2011/nov04e02.html article that the new EF mount zoom cinelenses are only compatible with Super35 or APS-C crops. What the heck? How can they market them as true EF lenses if they aren't even compatible with the flagship models of DSLRs? However, the primes are compatible with FF bodies.

You also want the zoom lenses to be compatible with your 1dx, 1d4, 1ds3, 5dmkII, or 5D; however, they are not. :(

OOOOO look at this the APS-H will live!

"Cropped to APS-H-equivalent size (dimensions measuring approximately 80% vertically and horizontally of a 35 mm full-frame sensor) when recording in 4K."

Why would they

Well, a 14-60mm 2.6 would be awsome on a 5D...


It would be, but alas according to the press release it won't work with 35mm sized sensor:

"The new wide-angle cinema zoom lenses will offer the industry's widest angle of view among 35 mm digital cinema lenses with a wide-angle-end focal length of 14.5 mm."1 1Not compatible with 35mm full-frame or APS-H camera sensors."

I don't know why it crops to APS-H, because the new zooms specifically are not compatible "35mm full-frame or APS-H camera sensors."  Are they saying that their yet-to-be-released 4K DSLR, which is full frame and crops to APS-H in 4k mode, is unable to take advantage of their new 4K zoom lenses??

Right. But the primes will. And my question remains about whether they will AF or not.

$6800 for ONE prime, that's approaching double the price of the Zeiss CP.2.....these things better be awesome, but no way I'd trade pretty much all my L lenses for one of these.
5DIII/5DII/Bunch of L's and ZE's, currently rearranging.
