    Not a fast lens, but only solution available for automatic zoom. In some cases it is necessary to update the firmware before.

    Comments about Sony SCL-Z18X140 FZ Mount 14X Power Zoom Lens:

    Ordered this lens for my Sony PMW-F3L camcorder and uploaded the latest Firmware from Sony in order to operate the lens. Easily mounted onto camera and is fully automatic. Auto Iris control, Focus and Steady shot control. Great zoom range. Zoom is adjustable either fast or slow by way of zoom lever just like other Sony camcorders like the FX-1000 and the AX-2000. Best used outside or under sufficient indoor lighting because its not considered a fast lens at 3.8 at the widest. Nevertheless, Im very satisfied with the image quality and ease of operation.
