If the compensation glass works out...
Comments from a naysayer:
I'm curious to hear about the results. Additional optics would appear to do little for the quality of an image, actually quite the opposite. 2x extenders? I'm just looking at the numbers here.
Zeiss Ultra Primes are rated to resolve at 100 lp/mm, I believe, and so are the FujinonHD lenses. Maybe the only way a film lens would resolve better is when forming comparison to an SD lens. HD lenses should resolve as well as finest film lenses for the purposes of a 2/3" 16:9 imager.
Of course, there's the lovely warmth of Cooke S4's among other characteristics of high-end film lenses that may be desirable regardless of resolving power.
Proof of the pudding is in the tasting, of course.

The makers know how to fix the problem, so I hope to get it back in a few weeks. The film lenses can not be physically close enough to the CCD to work. So they are going to put in a nice piece of glass to compensate.
Good God- they didn't know this before putting it out on the market???
