What do you mean Sony are just now releasing global shutter 4k sensors? The F55 has been out for 6 years. Panasonic don't have global shutter...
Isn't the real selling point (and also the reason for the outstanding performance) of these lenses the fact that they're designed from the ground up for cinema, making them the cheapest true cine lenses out there by a WIDE margin?
The F65 was never 8K. It used a very specific sub-pixel pattern that enabled full color depth at 4K, similar to how an 8K sensor would allow the same.

You do realized that Lacie don't actually make hard-drives, right? Their hard drives are no worse or better than anyone else's.
Their rugged builds do exactly what they're meant to, they add shock-absorbing material around the drive, so that if you were to drop it, the drive itself doesn't the grunt of the impact. That does in no way mean that the drives themselves are any less fragile.
Looking at their bigger drives, Lacie are on top of things. I always demand Lacie Quadra or 2big drives if the production can't afford a proper Raid. I've never come across any external drives from other companies that have the same kind of speed and quality.
How is Alexa mini the winner when Alexa XT/XT Plus was used more, and the Arricam LT and Alexa 65 was used as much?
