Nick Manly DOP uses them extensively and has said -

I used the TLS Morpheus and Aurora zooms on seasons 1 and 2  combined with Arri Amiras from Verve. I really liked their look and the practicality of a high-quality lens that was light enough to use on a show with a lot of handheld work.
The Vega's use the same Nikon glass, it's got great character without looking " vintage" and a T1.5  Full Frame range allowed me to shoot in low light and some confined locations with high-quality results. They are light but robust and the matched diameter made for fast lens changes without a matte box or follow focus issues, a solid set of primes I have used on 2 BBC drama series since. Currently, the same set is being used by Darius Kondji ASC ( Delicatessen, Evita, Seven) on " Mickey 17".
