Never heard of it. But it looks like a VERY cool lens....
There are people who actually think LENS stabilization is better than sensor shifting!

you do the focussing and zooming on the `dials` on the side..........interesting indeed, ideal for videographers

You are right about that. I wonder what the image quality would be like on an E mount shooting video?

This unique lens had a production run of only 3 years and I have no idea how many were made, but this example is £550...........

Yes, may be a good buy for some one to do video, will anyone be brave enough to do it though at that price.?
