They're great rental options for a special shoot though. More than anything I just love the whole philosophy behind the lenses. Whilst the corporations are making everything perfectly sharp, contrasty and clinical these guys are producing artisan cinema lenses with a 'dreamy' wide open look and two coatings, one for a low contrast and higher levels of flare. MUCH NEEDED!!

Im sure wide open they look very arty with such a narrow dof
and the flare option by having an uncoated version is great
start pointing those at 1000watt lamps on set and they will look amazing!

I really need to get out and shoot properly with my FS100 and SLR Magic T0.95. Did a very brief test at 3am and it looked great but yet to shoot in anger with it. The SLR Magic T0.95 is a good option for anamorphic too, I shot this with it on the GH2 a few months ago.

The more lenses like these Hawks, SLR Magics and Voigtlanders we filmmakers get, the more creative for all concerned.
