Here is a little video from Carl Zeiss Lenses at Photokina 2010 showing off the new 35mm f1.4. The lens looks like it will be available in both Canon and Nikon mounts to start. I use the ZE line exclusively for prime lens work. It is much easier to soften the image in post than try to sharpen it up. Zeiss lenses are always razor sharp. It does not get any better than that.

I briefly jumped on the set of “Rehab” Directed By Rick Bieber to interview DOP Ken Glassing in between lighting setups. Ken has been using the Canon 7D on CSI Miami for both First and 2nd Unit work. He has been using a mix of Zeiss and Canon Glass on the two cameras spinning for this twelve day feature shoot. Tim Sheridan is shooting “B” camera, Mike Cassidy and Duane Ellison are camera assisting. The small form factor has been a great help as you can see in this scene that was shot in the basement of the Linda Vista Hospital here in Los Angeles. Hunter Kerhart hooked up the edit for this one. Thanks Hunter!
Here is a straight up cut and paste, no time to check it out but more warning is a good thing with the temp gauge. I can dig that.
“Firmware Version 1.2.1 incorporates the following improvements and fixes.
Extends the timing at which the high temperature warning indicator is displayed and the timing of automatic shut down of the camera due to a rise in internal temperature during Live View or EOS Movie functions.
Optimizes program shift when the ISO setting of the camera is set to AUTO.
Corrects a misspelling in the French-language menu.” (I Love This One!)
