B&H has the Rokinon 85mm T1.5 Cine lens in stock for Canon, Nikon and Sony (both NEX and Alpha) mounts. The lens features standard geared focus and aperture rings for use with follow focus units. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
Samyang has added a 85mm T1.5 lens to its cinema lens line-up. The new 85mm T1.5 AS IF UMC lens joins the four existing Samyang cine lenses, the 8mm, 14mm, 24mm and 35mm.
Optical construction is the same as a standard version of the 85mm lens, including the 8-blade aperture for smooth bokeh wide open. This new version, however, is designed specifically for cinematography with focus gearing and a silent aperture ring.
No word yet on price, release dates or mount options; however, past Samyang cine models have been available in Canon, Nikon and Sony mounts.
Rokinon’s new 14mm and 24mm Cine lenses are in stock and now shipping from B&H. The 24mm T1.5 and 14mm T3.1 lenses feature standard geared focus and aperture rings, as well as a smooth “declicked” aperture.

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. The CP.2 25mm T2.1 lens will be available with interchangeable mounts for PL, EF, F, MFT and E mounts. 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.
