$7.5k per lens is still a little pricey for most independent cinematographers, but it's a hell of a lot more affordable than the Leitz Summilux-C glass. It's somewhat amusing to see how the battle of cine glass used to be getting the sharpest image possible, but now it's starting to swing in favor of making less sharp images due to the rise of 4k+ super35 & full-frame sensors.

I'd like to see if Canon are able to develop a fast zoom lens from the Sumire line for a super35 image circle. Sigma did a decent job with the 18-35mm & 50-100mm T2 lenses; it would be nice to have that kind of focal length versatility with the Sumire look.
