Re: Tokina Cinema Lenses

Troy- Do you see any reason to go for the G.L. Optics over the Cinematics?

Reading the descriptions from each company I just don't see much difference. It looks as if the iris on the "Gloptics" has more throw than does the iris on the CMatics. FYI- the G.L. Optics pages are a bit misleading. The lens pictured most, the rehouse of the Sigma that has the nice fat barrel like the Cinematics is the G.L. Optics rehouse with the extended, 300 degree focus. That lens costs an additional $850. So, for the lens you see pictured most in reviews and in the GL Optics video the total before shipping would be $4350. The $3500 rehouse of the Sigma 18-35 looks like this:

Do you know if the Sigma or the Sigma rehouses have focus end stop?

Are you also considering the rehoused Nikon over the rehoused Canon version in order to gain iris control on the lens?

You see any issues with using the re-housed Sigma via a simple Nikon G to E-mount adapter? It seems a bit redundant to use one of the more expensive adapters that has iris control since the lens will have iris control on the barrel.
