Re: Sony Kit lenses vs still or Red lenses?

The Vimeo camparison was fascinating, thanks for linking.

Out of interest, the Sony lenses are made for Sony by Konica Minolta, the Zeiss CP2 primes are apparently manufactured by Cosina, so no longer 'German glass'.

Extremely interesting to see the different colour rendition and contrast between them. I'm looking forward to see Cooke added into the comparison mix too.

Re: Sony Kit lenses vs still or Red lenses?

I have heard similar information about the Sony lenses being manufactured by Konica Minolta but I have never heard it qualified by a Sony Production Manager or Marketing Rep.

To my eyes and hands those lenses have the same look and feel as Fujinon lenses. Also Sony has a very close and long standing relationship with Fujinon but this is all conjecture. Regardless, I would want to hear from a well placed Sony representative before stating where these lenses actually came from.

Actually Sony bought the Photo Imaging Unit from Konica Minolta 5 years ago.

I highly doubt Fujinon makes those lenses.
