  • I really appreciate how Richard Schleuning explained his products. And I agree with his hesitating to say pixels might not get as small as 1.5 microns in a cine camera. They could. And materials may be developed to go even smaller.

  • “we’re not promoting this lens for video acquisition” and then “if you’re a filmmaker 4000$ for a lens isn’t really that expensive”… this guy should be in politics!

  • Woah, great video. lots of useful information. Thanks guys!

  • Great questioning. Great interview subject. I wish all of the Internet was like this. Thanks!

    With most NAB videos I’m jumping up and down wishing I’m there so I could ask questions myself. With this one I’m like “glad I wasn’t there interrupting them!”

  • Great chemistry between the interviewer and the guest, had a great time watching it ;)

    And yeah 4000USD is pretty expensive, BUT we all know that this is a lifetime investment.
    I’m really exited to see the results of this one, just imagine what comes up when Zeiss lens designers get a free pass to go wild…
