This is probably an ignorant question but why not just use a 35mm still camera lens? I assume (1. it wouldn't be compatible with the adapter and (2. still lens don't work the same way as film lens w/ motion, etc. anyway, was just a thought

Why not? You just need the right kind of mount. 35mm still lenses are a little softer but compared to the price of cinema lenses it `s a good alternative. I have an Fx1 and use nikons with a nikon lens mount on the adapter and have got some really sharp images. you might have to do some experimentation to set the flange focus properly but once fully tweaked the results are impressive.
wow, thanks for the info. What kind of lens mount do you use to achieve that? if you can get the same short depth of field from 35mm still lens on an fx1, that's pretty awesome. i'd love to see some examples if you have them.
