he guys

Just been doing a bit of online window shopping, and I noticed quite a bit of cine lenses out there. Anyone use, or know of results of a cine lens for panos?

Cheers

Get new zeiss HQ 55mm and you dont need such a cine-lens anymore. It will come out by the end of year or shortly before. In my opinion it will be the best zeiss ever. ONe will get MF-quality. In an interview two zeiss-managers told(or one of them, one was dr huber nasse)that they were blocked to offer the best possible quality beforehand.
Start saving money now, it will cost 3000 euro.

My understanding is the only difference is that the "click" is removed from the aperture ring allowing smooth "quite" changes whilst shooting video. Outside of that they are the exact same lens.

Could you see any drawbacks to using a cine lens? Any massive cons?

Bumping the aperture ring could be an issue. But like the focus ring you could tape it into position.

I don't see any other issues but I have never used one either.

The question becomes; why do you want to buy one?

well, I was doing some window shopping recently, and I noticed that (compared to certain lenses I was considering) Cine glass was just as expensive as regular lenses.

I hear that cine lenses use mostly the centre of an image circle (thus should technically be sharper all around) and I thought it would be an interesting comparison to do.

What lens exactly are you talking about?

first one on the list: 8mm Rokinon fish eye for Sony E-mount. Both cine and photo are the same price.

been looking at a mirrorless system as an everyday camera/walk around system when I'm abroad. Maybe an NEX 6 or Fuji X-pro 1. A fish would allow me to shoot pano's without bringing my dslr kit.

Yes, as I stated the lenses are the same apart from the aperture ring being de-clicked. Glass is the same, sharpness is the same etc.

The Sony NEX and off the shelf Samyang/Rokinon 8mm is a good combination. Better then that is the modified Samyang 7.5mm Fisheye. More on this in this old thread www.panoguide.com/forums/tipsntricks/9644/ the thread is long but you can learn a lot from it.
