I'm thinking about investing in a set of these to pair with my BMCC 2.5k. They seem to have a pretty good reputation and I've seen them been used on a wide array of cameras from DSLRs to the ARRI Amira. From the stills I've seen, they look like they resolve really nicely. What do you guys think? I was originally interested in Nikkor Ai-S lenses, as I already own the 50 1.4. I think I'm torn between Nikkors and Zeiss Contax.

Having owned some, they're good lenses. They do have the advantage of focusing the same direction as other lenses. In the end, it really depends on if you like the look from Zeiss glass.
