“I’ve been recently asked for advance on a proper vintage cine lens for around $1000-2000 that would work with a Super35 sensor cameras like Canon C100/300, Sony FS100/700 & others.

I think it’s quite a relevant question as a lot of people would love to own a proper cine lens, but a few can afford one, let alone a set, so we settle for modern or vintage photo glass, which is awesome, but it doesn’t take a genius to know there can’t be anything better than a lens that been specifically designed for video. There are many benefits a proper cine lens has over an average photo lens, which include longer focusing through (easier to focus with), step-less aperture adjustment (essential for video work, found on some photo lenses, but usually smoother on cine lenses), precise markings & follow focus gears (essential for focus pullers), minimal breathing (not a problem for photos, but off-putting on video, present even on expensive photo lenses), sturdy & solid construction (will withstand abuse of professional production, demanding working conditions like handling strong wireless follow focus motors).”
