How is EF the future? Give me mirrorless lenses all day long

It's not like people are short for good EF lenses

Most cine camera are still EF or PL, beside there are no affordable and relatively compact cine primes made for super 35 on the market in those mounts.

Yes there is Rokinon for EF but the built quality is terrible. ( the barrels get loose and you cant tighten them up because they are plastic.)

Still lenses have terrible throw in the 24mm and wider focals, and are usually 2.8 

I quite interested by a set that finally have a relatively fast and affordable 18mm .

Matthew Duclos has a great write up about the history of Veydra, which touches upon Meike as well:

Cool article.

One part that stood out to me was "During my initial tests I found that the Meike primes performed better optically in almost all areas."  That's quite encouraging as the Veydras was optically excellent.
