Canon Cinema Prime overview

  • 1Description

The Canon CN-E 35mm T1.5 L F Cinema Prime Lens is a manual focus prime lens that covers full-frame and Super 35 sensor formats.

The lens offers a maximum aperture of T1.5, useful when shooting in low-light situations or when you want to capture that exceedingly shallow depth of field look. It has an 11-blade iris that provides round out-of-focus highlights for a natural looking bokeh. The lens barrel features 300° of stepless, smooth rotation from close focus to infinity, giving you a high degree of precision and consistent focus.

The lens is designed to minimize focus breathing, and has innovative glass construction that counteracts barrel expansion and contraction to avoid temperature-induced marking discrepancies. It has focus markings on both sides of the barrel, with the rear markings on an angled surface, making it readable from either side of the camera. It also has a dust- and water-resistant housing to minimize maintenance during normal use.

The CN-E 14mm and the other five CN-E lenses share the same 114mm front barrel diameter, focus rotation, 36° iris rotation, and focus and iris gear positions, allowing for easier swaps.

Key Features
  • Covers full-frame and Super 35 sensors
  • 11-blade iris
  • Focus breathing minimized to virtually zero
  • Markings on both sides of the barrel
  • Rear markings on an angled surface
  • Smooth, stepless 300° focus ring
  • Geared manual iris ring
  • Shares 114mm front barrel diameter, focus rotation, 36° iris rotation, and focus and iris gear positions with the rest of the CN-E lineup
  • Glass construction counteracts temperature-induced marking discrepancies
  • Dust- and water-resistant housing
  • Focus markings can be switched to metric labeling if you send the lens to Canon for modification

    Canon Cinema Prime reviews

    CN-E 35mm T1.5 L F Cinema Prime Lens (EF Mount) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great addition to Canon's Cine Prime Set One the most-used lenses on a super 35mm sensor, the 35mm CN-E from canon has been long in coming. I think it was worth the wait. This lens ads the mechanics and housing of a true cinema lens, and improves noticeably in terms of contrast, sharpness and chromatic aberration compared it's still-camera-L-series cousin. Contrast is excellent wide open, and corner sharpness is exceptional throughout the range. The small amount of CA is largely limited to the extreme corners on a full frame camera, and is essentially negligible on super35 or other cropped sensors. I only wish the 50mm was this good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Standard I am in production now, using this lens and it's amazing, solid, sharp, yet naturally soft. I'm using it with the EOS C300 Mark II so in combination with the camera, it produces such a beautiful aesthetic straight out of the box. The lens is so well crafted. No breathing at all. It has a great weight to it. My first Canon Cine Prime Lens purchase and thus far, am totally satisfied. I will definitely be investing in more. The 35mm is a great choice for a first purchase as you can use this prime for so many applications. You could shoot an entire feature with just a 35mm if need be. I don't scoff at the price either. Artist's tools do cost. I'm a firm believer that you truly do get what you pay for.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Lens is Sharp and Worth Every Penny My video production is mainly for television commercials. I've owned other compact prime lenses before and when I had the opportunity to work with the Canon CN-E line, I immediately got more attention and compliments from my clients. The more I work with this line of lenses the more business I tend to get, which is why I chose to invest. To my surprise, this lens is even sharper than the 50mm and 85mm which I'd worked with in the past...I am impressed and very happy about my purchase.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So sweet! This is my prime go-to lens on my Canon C-300. On the set of my short film, Jupiter's Legacy, my DP and I came back to this lens again and again. Coupled with the C-300's low light capabilities, the 1.5 allowed me to shoot primarily in lovely candlelight and torchlight. We successfully lit one scene with a single 15 watt Christmas Tree bulb. This lens is tack sharp and has great contrast. I love it. The first AC loved working with the smooth focus mechanism.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing tool The CN-E 35mm t1.5 L F Cine Prime is my first introduction to Cine Lenses. So take that fwiw. For me it has become an invaluable tool as it sits on my A camera (C100 Mki) with follow focus. Typically I use this lens as A cam for all my interviews - I love the field of view for 35mm so I can sit close enough to interviewees and have a nice medium while using my C100 Mkii with an L zoom for off axis Close Ups (70-200 or 24-105). For what I do (docs and corporate video and even some scenario based work) I could prob get a similiar look for the output with a 35mm L prime but wouldn't have the convenience with the follow focus ring, the de-clicked aperture ring, nor would I have the 11 iris blades - (for you bokeh lovers it's pretty DEEE licious--and who doesn't love bokeh??). The other attributes add up nicely as well: Built like a tank, very little focus breathing, and no noticeable distortions nor chromatic aberrations... I am in the sweet spot of the lens at all times with the super 35 sensor but have popped it on my 5d Mkiii and it looks pretty spectacular at Full Frame as well. I think the main sell for me is it's a lens that I will be using long term. As I upgrade/rent cameras it will be with me as long as I can use EF mounts. Other things to consider: there is a bit of yellow to this lens (I've noticed with matching other lenses - to my eyes this is a pleasing cinema look but can easily be dialed out with some very basic CC if you want to) - it also has a really nice contrasty image - again going for the cinema look. If you shoot in Wide DR on the C100 as do I you get an even better image right out of the gate (I still bill in grading time for my edits but the contrast I don't touch as much for things shot with this lens) ..And as advertised it's razor sharp... even wide open, so if you are shooting doc-style in low light settings it really shines. It is also much heavier than a still lens - so you need to have a great tripod/rig and strength if you are going to shoot with it. (again it works nicely in my setup since I have two closely matched cameras - this one stays put in a studio style setup (with some minimal HH work) while my B camera is extremely light and I can do endurance run and gun style shooting when I need to. Bottom line - what you are paying for is convenience, versatility and a bit of future proofing (I hope) for shooting video. If you can just barely afford this I'd check first that you have a solid gear foundation (tripod, lights, mics) first and stick with still lenses until than. If you an afford it I doubt you'll be disappointed Hopefully this review helps. Happy shooting!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice addition to the CN-E line of primes I also own CN-E 24 mm. 35 mm version is sharper and creates very pleasant image. I see myself using it much more than 24. I should add that the whole line Canon cine primes is a very good alternative to other sets of primes from other manufacturers including Zeiss Compact line which are more neutral and lifeless.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have I had the original set of these cine lenses...then cometed my set with this 35mm. What a fantastic lens. The quality and build is superb. I picked these over the Ziess set...and I'll never look back!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Our #1 Lens We produce travel and tourism footage and had been working with the canon cine 14, 24, 50, 85, and 135 for about a year. Just picked up the 35 and it has become our main workhouse lens. Most of our shots are a couple enjoying a scenic location and this lens sure is a beauty. Highly recommend this lens and the Canon cine primes.
