T* means multicoated, Sonnar is an asymmetrical (telephoto?) design that also means fast (f2.0 or faster), Planar references a symmetrical six-element design, Distagon means wide angle retro focus design, Biogon means wide angle angle but more symmetrical? I don't really understand lens design. They're mostly branding terms.

The Contax still lenses will all cover full fame. The cinema lenses won't, not all of them at least.

The ones I have are the Contax (Yashica -> C/Y) Zeiss Distagon 25, 28 & 35mm f/2.8, 28mm f/2 'Hollywood', Tessar 45mm f/2.8, Planar 50mm f/1.4, Sonnar 85 & 135mm f/2.8. I adapt them to MFT with a focal reducer, so the f/2.8 ones behave more like f/2s anyways. They are a good bunch to have and adapt to just about anything you can think of. There's some premium cinehoused ones at https://www.lockcircle.com/primecircle/ .

Anyways, lots of info out there. Also on YouTube, blogs and forums. Like recently also mentioned at EOSHD already this one video on YT:

But wait, there's more, order now and... there's of course tons of other videos on the subject, like this one from our good friend Alan Besedin/VLEV: https://www.vintagelensesforvideo.com/contax-zeiss/

Recent vid from a fellow Dutchie:

Here's a taste of 6K:

Wow, those Zeiss m42 lenses aren't that expensive...  you look at the other types and the prices are all in the "WTF...  they're having a go surely" category!

You could do far worse than an S1(h) and a set of those.

Resolution has nothing to do with the image circle of a lens. 

You could theoretically have 1" sensor which is 6K, or it could be a medium format sensor doing 6K

@Emanuel has already posted this leaked specs sheet:

8K in a smartphone is not that far away.. 

 

BTW, back in the good old days anything that had ~7" screen was a tablet, but now it's a freaking Ultra phone? How am I supposed to handle it? Which pockets does it fit into? 

Gimme back my 4" iPhone 5S..

I miss small phones.

I remember when the first ever Samsung Galaxy Note was released and it seemed HUGE! 

Now that screen size (5.3") is "normal", or even smaller than normal!

Then again, my smartphone back then was 3.5"
