  1. #1 Loawa Cinema lenses 
    I see Loawa ( Venus Optics ) will be putting out their line up in cinema housings . longer focus throw , PL mount (I think ) etc

    I contacted them some months ago asking if they could do the 12mm zero D in PL mount. At the time they said they don't do that mount.

    In Zero D they now have :-

    12mm Zero D ( Full Frame )

    9mm Zero D ( APSC )

    apology's in advance if someone has already posted this news here's a link

    Just looking at the photography lens from NAB, that looked liked the 7artisans lens (see the BMCUSER thread here - I wonder if this is one if those different brand named labeled. The 7artisans 7.5mm MFT is $169 on B&H and de-clicked so it could be housed with a cinema lens housing. -

    I wonder if 7artisans does have cinema housed lens as well. They would be cheaper.

    Interesting lens, artisans7 are so cheap it's worth it for the fun alone, 180 degrees is outrageous

    the 7.5 Zero D is rectilinear & will be coming out in cinema housing as is the their 15mm I believe. The 7.5 is 110 degrees. I think it flares ( not in a good way ) when facing the sun or thereabouts. something to consider.

    here's some thoughts on the 7.5mm

    So I've heard back from Venus Optics to confirm the following

    12mm cine-mod ( will be available in PL mount )

    7.5mm cine-mod T2.1 MFT mount

    9mm cine-mod T2.9

    15mm cine-mod T2.1

    All will be available in late 2018 all are rectilinear I'll see if I can get prices further along
