    I wouldn't buy the ZE version, but the ZF version, which has manual iris and longer focal flange distance, and therefore is more future-proof. And still, if money is not an issue, there are nicer lenses out there: http://timurcivan.blogspot.com.es/20...arl-zeiss.html - http://timurcivan.blogspot.com.es/20...-ii-cooke.html. In any case, if money is not an issue, why a DSLR? They are great for the price, but there are much better options out there if you're willing to pay for them.

    I wish Zeiss had a 24mm-ish F1.4 lens as well, nice to have a wide angle with that kind of speed.
    The closest to that is their recently released 25mm F2.0, which is a really nice lens, but not F1.4. The other one I like is their 18mm F3.5.

I've only used their 21mm lens, however it is important to note that through my limited experience their focus throws are REALLY long and have hard stops. So definitely take these into account.

    Also note that the Nikon ZF's can work on the Canon DSLR's too (with an adapter) as the ZF's have a manual aperture ring. ZF's in my opinion offer more versatility in case you want to move into other camera systems.

    But can't argue with their build quality, all metal design is amazing! Oh and because of the all metal finishing, they are slippery to hold as well, so ensure you don't have slippery hands either.

    I love Vocas for matteboxes, rods, shoulder support, follow focus. Cambo for Jibs and dollies Schneider for filters, Zeiss for lenses.

    It's all dependant on your personal needs. Fore example, the Zeiss Compact Primes are about the best you can buy when it comes to EF-mount lenses for video. But they are no good to you if you plan on shooting wildlife and need a 600mm lens 90% of the time, as their longest lens is (I think) 100mm. Likewise some rigs are built to stay on a tripod in a studio at all times, others are designed for handheld field use. Which is best will depend on your own needs.

    A few companies to check out would be Zacuto (rigs/supports/rails/EVF/follow focus), Chrosziel (matte box), Letus35 (rigs/supports/rails) Cinevate (rigs/slider) Sennheiser (audio) Zeiss (lenses) and of course Canon (lenses, obviously!).
