Kostasm: Too much talking about a market that wants two things, power and expandability. Why don't they just revamp the old good aluminium tank? Fits lots of stuff and always looks better than a Dell. Simple.

That's what I thought too, the Apple PR group is doing a great job of focusing everyone on some future nirvana. Same Apple, different year.

"Slightly disappointing?" The media coverage seems uniformly ok with a 6-7 dev cycle...

makofoto: What about Flare? Contrast? Breathing?

There is some flare, consistent with my Nikon lenses but not unexpected (or like the SLR Magic flare you can get with some of their lenses. For me, it adds to the appeal of the lens. Contrast is good, though I'd give the Zeiss the edge there (I haven't used the Zeiss, just seen what they've done). Focus breathing is minimal.

Dr_Jon: I think when you say "optically excellent" you should add he's only testing for MTF (contrast/detail resolution), not the wide range of other desirable optical characteristics in a lens, let along a cinema lens (which adds a couple more).

I've had zero focus breathing on the 35 and 50mm's. The mechanics hold up well, great focus control, very long throw on the ring and it catches the follow focus gear snugly. Excellent lenses.
