Lenses lenses lenses CINE LENSES !!!

Well with the advent of HDSLR Video comes the search for the holy grail of lenses for our expedition. We need CINE lenses, WIDE ZOOM for underwater but it's like searching for the Holy Grail. DUCLOS, ZEISS, RUBY, HOT ROD to PL or not to PL that is the question. Whether tis nobler to stay the EF course...

We're kind of use to lenses that don't CLICK on your aperture/iris, Focus that moves at least 120 degrees of rotation, good ole CINE STYLE lenses. So we're up for suggestions as we need to accomodate a wide zoom like a 14mm-60mm range EF lens that has Aperture and Focus a la CINE and will fit in a housing.

Then there's this other NAGGING issue with the CANON DSLRs ! The AUTO FOCUS button cannot focus underwater, unstable, unreliable! So basically we have to fix it to shoot from around 3ft to infinity which pretty much kills any decent BOKEH, DOF...have to shoot at 5.6 or higher : > (

Ah good old technical issues they just seem to rear their ugly head up everywhere with every new piece of gear...Anyhow I need to keep surfin the web to get some answers here. All suggestions welcome here.
