Cinescopophilia: Schneider Kreuznach Cine-Xenar III Prime Lenses

NEW Schneider Kreuznach Cine-Xenar III Prime Lenses.

I previously reported on these lenses here.  I guess the newest thing here is that it sounds like they’ve priced the kit ($48,000, which I’m assuming is all 6) and that they’re scheduled to ship in July.  The Xenar ll’s didn’t get chatted up much mainly because their design meant they physically expanded as you focused.  They’ve re-done them to make them internal focus, and it sounds like they have improved the optics as well.  They look pretty sexy too 🙂  Their web site has a brochure.
