Canon Expands The Cinema EOS System with New EF Cinema Prime Lenses

Canon today announced the development of two new cinema prime lenses, the 14mm T3.1 cinema prime lens and 135mm T2.2 cinema prime lens, adding to the Cinema EOS lineup consisting of 11 EF Cinema Lenses.

Both the 14mm T3.1 and 135mm T2.2 cinema prime lenses will be engineered for exceptional optical performance for Canon's latest large-format single-sensor 4K and 2K digital cinematography cameras. As part of the Cinema EOS System, the lenses will be compatible with standard sensor sizes including Super 35mm, the standard format in the motion picture industry, as well as HD-compatible EOS Digital SLR cameras using 35mm full frame, APS-H and APS-C image sensors.

The 14mm T3.1 and 135mm T2.2 EF cinema prime lenses are expected to be available in the first half of 2013, and will be showcased from September 6 - 11, 2012 at IBC2012 in Amsterdam.

I'm not a canon guy, but are these compatible on canon DSLR's (ideally for video)? If so, are they just built to efficiently adjust aperture and focus smoothly for video?

I think you should be able to mount them on DSLR. its EF so it fits 5d. 

I may be wrong :P but it sounds like you can put them on DSLR.

My thoughts exactly.
