Thought I might ask here if anyone have worked with the Canon HJ21x Cine Zoom and the Zeiss Telephoto DigiZoom and could offer some points on what the biggest difference between them is other than ofcourse the obvious focal length and stops :P

Thinking build quality, contrast, sharpness, mtf performance, breathing.

I've already ordered the Canon lens so there is really no turning back on that, but if I was to get a set of Digi Primes later would I perhaps need to change it out anyways and get the matching DigiZoom's anyways?

The Canon HJ11 and HJ21 KLL (cine zoom) Lenses are really fantastic. I have had many DP,s who have commented on how pleasantly surprised they were by the quality and asthetic of these lenses. A good purchase in my opinion.

Hi! another question about HJ21
Does anybody know if thereĀ“s a optical differance between the the regular HJ21 and the HJ21 cinestyle,
or is it just the design that differ. I wanna have a zoom as a complement to my canon primes for my
next feature and have just been offer the regular HJ21. Any thoughts
