High Definition Ready
Many high-definition cameras are hamstrung by insufficient optics. Electronic News Gathering (ENG) lenses traditionally have been built to accommodate standard-definition. This lens is designed specifically with high-definition in mind. The optics increase fidelity, making sure HD footage is crystal clear.
Wide Angles for ENG Shooting
The lens provides the performance required for a variety of professional video applications, including event videography and news gathering featuring extremely wide angles. With durability professionals have come to expect, footage will look breathtaking, time after time.
Integral 2x Extender
For instant close-up shots, the lens has a switch that inserts an element that doubles the focal length at any point in the zoom range. Instead of using the zoom function, the extender gives immediate close-up images.
The lens has added capability when zooming, using the QuickZoom switch. At the touch of a button the lens can move to full telephoto in less than a second. This provides a no-hassle way of verifying focus.
The lens element design fitted for the internal focus mechanism greatly reduces aberrations and image distortions. These advances contribute to more balanced imaging from center to edge throughout the aperture range.
