  • From what I heard the problem they faced / have faced is to have both in-body and in-lens stabilisation work in tandem in spite of the limited bandwidth of the K-mount communication protocols.
  • The Carl Zeiss Superspeed cine lenses had a triangular aperture. There is a least one photo lens with such an aperture, the Carl Zeiss Planar HFT 85mm f/1.4 (Rollei QBM mount).
