Watch the video in YouTube at 1080..the lens is priced at $18,200. The video below does not do the lens justice in my opinion.
I know only too well how much time is lost during a shoot changing prime lenses when one decent 4K zoom would cover a larger variety of shots. The only reason we are forced to use prime lenses on a drama shoot is quality. A zoom lens up till now usually does not hold the same quality throughout the range as does equivalent prime glass at certain focal lengths. T or f stops in primes are usually better like t1.3 rather than t3.5 as seen in the fujinon lens, but with todays fast sensors I could live with t3.5.
To back this up I had another look at News Shooters section about Primes v Zooms with interesting results… NS…”Originally the results were posted for members of the Cinematographers’ Mailing List blind – without any information about which lens was which, in an attempt to get viewers to think about their preferences without any preconceptions based on brands or price. “The biggest surprise,” Geoff says, “has been how well the zoom lenses have done … received wisdom is that primes will always be better than zooms. Well, in a blind test this has been proved to be totally wrong.” read the section in full plus video footage here http://www.newsshooter.com/2016/04/10/dp-geoff-boyle-cinema-lens-supertest-the-results-may-surprise-you/
