As many people know, we consider these internet forums a waste of time.

however, faster they are.

we will soon offer a set of prime lenses.
the quality is german-style, the price is matched to reds offers.

please be aware that we cannot receive more than 5 mail on this bulletin board.

if you want to keep posted, therefore, please post on this thread.

By "offer" do you mean to imply you are building your own lenses? It's slightly hard to tell whether you're making your own or just going to be renting out others?

Space and time interchangeable they are.

Well Nostradamus, you could just make your email address part of your signature. Then it will automatically appear on every post you make, past and present. Just a suggestion.

But why can't you just tell everyone what lenses they are, even if you don't have them yet?
Hey, if it's good enough for your fearless leader, it should be good enough for you.

German-style quality? Like Lederhosen?

Or do you just mean German quality?

More info please.

I've just noticed Jan started a thread last month on REDUSER about this same subject, but Jan/Laguun's posts are now all marked "Banned". There is no explanation about this anywhere. I suppose you could imagine them getting a bit snotty about someone blatantly promoting a competing product on their website :D

Kind of ironic that Jan is now reduced to flogging his wares here, this being the "#1 Red Haters" site and all.
On the other hand, maybe he thinks that will give him a marketing advantage. :rolleyes:
Certainly be interesting to see what they're like.

Jan is being coy & not updating the thread!

I understand the first lenses will be 25, 32, 40, 50, 75,95 Second round 12, 14, 16 as well as the 150 Lenses will be T2 or better.

Final pricing could be 2500, depending on volume.

Beta test sets are available to buy at 2000 per lens.

Edit - I have since been informed delivery is March/April

March/April ... what?
This year? Decade? Century? Millennium? Epoch?

There's something not quite Kosher about all this.
However you slice it, setting up for bulk manufacture of high quality lenses requires the spending of some serious Krugerrands.
I can't help wondering why they would pick an outfit like von Krogh's to be their distributor, or even why they don't sell them directly.
Or even offer them to RED as an alternative supplier.

You could always find a bar that offers free WiFi Web access, and get the best of both worlds :D

From my understanding, he's not a distributor, he's just helping to beta test them. I believe they might actually be sold directly or through one distributor-at least in the US.

Remember, it's not like companies haven't had some time to work on lenses. Someone said that it takes Zeiss at least a year to get lenses to the market once they've been announced, and Ziess is supposed to be releasing some new lower cost ones through Abel Cine and Band Pro at NAB. Of course, these are supposed to be available immediately so evidently Zeiss has been working on them for quite a while.
