I was watching a YouTube video about the Leica Summilux-C primes where the guy from BandPro said that they were designed by the same guy that designed the Panavision Primo lenses. Other than speed, which do you think performs better?

Also, do they both cover FF sensors?

Is a FF sensor the same size as a VistaVision frame?

Yes, 36mm x 24mm.  Super-35 is more like approx. 24mm x 18mm though the MX sensor in the Red Epic camera is nearly 26mm wide so a few cine lenses can vignette or fall-off in the corners when used on the Epic in 5K mode.  VistaVision cameras traditionally have used 35mm still camera lenses like Nikkors.

 

The Zeiss Compact CP.2 cine lenses cover FF35 as do the new Schneider Xenon FF-Primes.
