Veydra 85mm T2.2 Mini-Prime in Sony E- or Micro Four Thirds Mount

Pricing & availability at B&H, Amazon

At just under $1,000 last time I looked, this is by far my favorite geared cine lens. In fact, if I were in the market for a set of primes, the Veydras would be it. They are a quarter the price of the usual suspects, but give up very little in the way of optics while offering a beautifully weighted, long-throw manual focus.
