Along with the new CZ.2 28-80mm cine lens, Carl Zeiss announced a new CP.2 25mm T2.1 cine prime lens – not to be confused with the current Zeiss CP.2 25mm T2.9 lens.

It is a full frame lens, covering a 36 x 24mm image circle, so it works with cameras like the 5D Mark III, as well as Super 35mm cameras like the C300.
The Zeiss CP.2 25mm T2.1 cine lens will be available in October for $4,500.

Samyang Optics has launched three new cinema lenses for Nikon and Canon mount HDSLRs.
These new cine lenses accompany the existing Samyang 8mm T3.8 Fisheye cine lens and feature “follow-focus gearing on focus and decoupled aperture. Such alterations allow the user to smoothly and quietly change focus and aperture / depth of field whist filming. Another feature is the visibility of the aperture and focus scale on the side of the lens.”
The new lenses should be available in August/September 2012.
