The ZX 12x25 is designed with the optical performance for 4K digital cinema production. It features high-precision, large-diameter aspheric elements designed with Fujifilm’s optical simulation technology. The use of a “three moving zoom group” system minimizes aberration fluctuation during zooming and controls image distortion across the zoom range, while yielding images with edge-to-edge sharpness. The lens also supports an optional detachable servo drive unit for ENG-style shooting with electronic zoom, focus, and iris control.
Additional features of the ZX 12x25 lens include a flange back focus adjustment mechanism, a 9-blade round iris for natural-looking bokeh, and a focus ring with a large 280-degree rotation angle. Standard 0.8 pitch gear rings are available on the focus, zoom, and aperture rings for use with follow focus systems.
