Recently I sold all my Canon gear (1Ds, 24-70L..) to get a small E-P1 with manual focus c-mount lenses:

1. Angenieux 25mm f0.95 (paid $200, cause it has a dent on filter thread but optically must be perfect).
Pics not mine, just for example:

2. Schneider Kreuznach Xenon 50mm f0.95 (paid $600, EX condition).

I can clearly see the difference in pictures taken with these cinematic lenses, their 3D look, smooth tonal reproduction, great colour, contrast etc.

Ordinary modern lenses for m4/3 don't have such a look. Their pics seem to be boring and flat.

That is my opinion why I choose cine lenses.
