I am building a budget for a new production company. Investors want excellence. So should I put a set of the Leica-C lenses in my budget? Do you guys out there like the boke? The in and out of focus character? The movement? The accessories? Has anyone rented them?

Looks like Leica is back to the lens designing ways that made them famous. Sure glad to see some competition. Hope they do an anamorphic set.

An article on the motion picture 35mm PL mount Leica lens set and its designer is in the June 2010 John Fauer's Film & Digital Times. I emailed the to ask for a download of this article on their downloads page. If they put it on the web I will attach the IRL.
