I met them at NAB last year; they seemed very very nice. All I have to go on is a twenty minute chat with the company and I don't know if they're even selling them yet.

Not a cheap purchase for a Red based setup, but not as expensive as the big names. Presumably the quality of the product will reflect that.

They've been out for a while, I think at least since last summer. I've used them, and like them a lot. Optically, I think they are very sharp and the closest comparison I would make is with Ultra Primes. Mechanically I have no complaints either, nicely damped and AC friendly, though an extra couple of distance marks would have been nice. The price point is very impressive, and I think the only other set of primes of comparable quality in this price range are the Red Pro Primes.
