The four new Canon EF Cinema Lenses deliver high optical performance while offering practical functionality. Despite their compact, lightweight design, the lenses support use with 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels) resolution cameras* while covering a wide focal-length range. Using the wide-angle and telephoto-zoom models as a set, or in combination with single-focal-
Exceptional optical performance to fulfil 4K production
Compatible with cameras equipped with industry-standard-
Broad focal-length coverage in a compact, lightweight design for high practicality
Designed with hand-held shooting in mind, each new zoom lens weighs just approximately 2.2 kg, less than half the weight of Canon’s top-end zoom lens models, which went on sale earlier this year. Additionally, despite their compact size, the new line-up covers a broad range of focal lengths to deliver utility as well as mobility.
Main Features: CN-E15.5–47mm T2.8 L S/SP and CN-E30¬–105mm T2.8 L S/SP
1.Designed to deliver high operability
-With a focus rotation angle of approximately 300 degrees, the lenses facilitate precise focusing performance.
-Zoom, focus and iris markings all appear on angled surfaces for improved readability from behind the camera http://www.canon.com.au/
-The new line-up, which can be used with matte boxes and focus-adjustment accessories, features a unified front lens diameter and uniform gear positions, doing away with the need to adjust or reposition accessory gear when switching between the two lenses.
-By removing the cover ring, users can easily perform flange-back adjustment.
2.High optical performance for use with 4K-resolution cameras
-Supports 4K (4096 x 2160 pixels) production standards, with a level of resolution exceeding four times the resolution of Full HD.
-Offers compatibility with industry-standard Super 35 mm-equivalent image format as well as APS-C-size sensors.*
-The optimal placement of low-refraction, low-dispersion UD (ultra-low dispersion) glass corrects for axial and lateral chromatic aberrations to realise exceptional imaging performance without colour blurring.
-With a T-number of 2.8, the new lens line-up offers bright performance and, with no changes in brightness during zooming, enables the use of attractive blur effects when employing a shallow depth of field.
-Each lens is equipped with an 11-blade aperture diaphragm for soft, attractive blur characteristics.
-The lenses minimise focus-induced changes in the angle of view and, through the latest advances in anti-reflective coating and related technologies, reduce the occurrence of ghosting and flare.
3.Functionality to realise increased shooting convenience
-Each lens offers a reduced minimum object distance (0.5 m for the CN-E15.5–47mm T2.8 L S/SP and 0.6 m for the CN-E30¬–105mm T2.8 L S/SP) that makes possible tighter close-ups and facilitates shooting in limited-space environments.
-The EF-mount version lenses, when combined with Cinema EOS System cameras, support lens-camera communication enabling the recording of zoom and other settings along with video data, making possible the effective management of shooting conditions. Additionally, a future camera firmware update (release date to be decided) will enable automatic image correction along with other benefits.
* Not compatible with 35 mm full-frame or APS-H-size sensors
