The expanded EF Cinema Lens series will include two wide-angle cinema zoom lenses, the CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L S (EF mount) and CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L SP (PL mount), alongside two telephoto cinema zoom lenses, the CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L S (EF) and CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L SP (PL).
The new models support 4K (4,096 x 2,160) resolutions and will be smaller, lighter and more compact – offering outstanding mobility and quality. Available with both EF and PL mounts, the lenses will also be available at competitive prices, offering premium performance to a wider range of users.
Each lens will feature a compact, lightweight body supporting a wide focal range, making them ideal for handheld shooting. Combined with the Canon’s existing high-end EF Cinema primes, the new lenses will offer a greater variety of creative possibilities for video professionals of all types.
Prototypes of the new cinema zoom lenses will be on display at NAB 2012, one of the world’s largest events for the video, broadcasting equipment and digital media industries. NAB 2012 will take place from April 16 to 19 in Las Vegas, USA.
The CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L S (EF mount), CN-E15.5-47mm T2.8 L SP (PL mount), CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L S (EF mount) and the CN-E30-105mm T2.8 L SP (PL mount) will be available from September 2012.
